I suppose it could be a disappointment for people who are after very traditional British recipes for the slow cooker -for which there are plenty of other books- as a lot of recipes require different kinds of spices, but I found the ratio traditional vs international recipes very much in keeping with my tastes.
I liked the presentation of the recipes and the clear indications at the top of the page as to number of servings, prep time, cooking time and setting (slow cooker) or hob or oven as well as the tips and suggestions given after the recipes.
Most of the recipes are for the slow cooker but some are to be cooked on the hob or in the oven, all obviously take some time to "slow cook" but most take about 15 mns prep time, so in most cases, little work and great returns - if we checked the cooking time matched our schedule ;-).
The photos are good and inspiring although they are not on glossy paper and every recipe is not featured but they look pretty close to what you will obtain (one or two forgivable exceptions to make the photos look more appealing), something I do appreciate.
Recipes are sorted out by:
-Introduction (with great slow cooker tips for people who are new to the appliance...and the others)
-Soups and sauces (we loved the seafood laksa -expensive but well worth it- and the bolognese cooked that way was a winner too)
-On the side (aromatic aubergine with feta and spinach was surprisingly tasty as were slow-cooked courgettes and slow-cooked fennel with tomatoes, olives and crispy crumbs, next on the list: spicy braised aubergines with prunes...Read more ›
Amazon delivery was very speedy, as usual.
I would thoroughly recommend this book.
