This is a slight volume but at such a low price including postage is excellent value. Imperial measures are used throughout but a table of metric equivalents can be found at the end of the book. There are no photographs of the food but eleven old sepia prints add interest to the publication. The recipes are for casseroles and stews to cook either on the hob or in the oven. However, in every case it would be possible to use a slow cooker instead, as I have done in a number of cases.

What I like about this book is that there are no "duds" - or perhaps I should say that there are no recipes that fail to appeal to me. In addition to the full range of beef, pork and lamb dishes there are rabbit, hare, pigeon, venison and wild duck recipes. I have had this book for six months and have tried most of its recipes and enjoyed them all.

I have been looking for a cookery book on stews & casseroles and was quite pleased to come across one that wasn't written in America! I have since bought more of this series and I am very happy with the results, as I am usually a beans on toast kind of guy.

Don't be put off by it only having 48 pages, as there are 33 recipes in this book. You could try Beef Stew With Walnuts, Pork & Apricot Casserole, Chicken & Bacon Casserole, Wild Duck With Apples...is your mouth watering yet?

Some of the recipes take a bit of preparation, but I tend to prepare them the night before and just throw them into the Slow Cooker in the morning, so I have a lovely casserole waiting for me when I come home from work.

This book is worth getting just because of the low price and I can assure you that it will become one of the more used cookbooks on your kitchen shelf. I would also recommend a Sara Lewis for a more in depth book on slow cookers.

...from the ‘Salmon Favourite Recipe’ series.

~ COLOUR EDITION *

Measuring around 16.75 cm x 11.75 cm, this charming little paperback has 48 high quality pages, covering 34 recipes.
It opens with an alphabetical list of the recipes contained within.
Each recipe opens with the title, a note, and the list of ingredients plus the method.

Interspersed with colour illustrations my particular favourite being:

‘Fireside Companions’ by Henry Tozer, on page 25, alongside a ‘Rich Venison Casserole’ in a creamy sauce, which is regularly on my menu, served with the recommended creamy mashed potato.

Metric Conversion tables are given on the last page before a complete list of the titles in the Salmon series, on the inside back cover.

ooOoo

* The old edition, with sepia-coloured illustrations, is still available.
As the two editions are on the same Amazon product code, it may be worth indicating which is required if adding to an existing collection.

Tonight we ate Pork Hot Pot! Not being British I have to say that I had never heard of such a dish and oh boy is it delicious..... All the recipes I have tried so far were all great like Bacon with beans and others! This was a very cheap book, no photos, only straigh forward recipes but how many photos of casseroles does one need? It does have wonderful illustrations! An old-fashioned book with delicious recipes! In a few days I am going to make the Chicken Hot Pot which seems quite different from the one with pork.

There are a few recipes in this book that are duplicated in others of this range, but overall a nice collection.

By Autamme_dot_com TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 27 April 2012
A nice bowl or plate of casserole or stew has always been a pleasant, cheery way to make a cold day somewhat less colder. There has been a bit of a renaissance with casserole and stew cookery in recent times, bringing its delights to a younger audience and their hectic lifestyles, with the snappier name of "one pot cookery" or "slow cookery".
As a great way to give a possibly unfamiliar type of food a trial, this little book offers 34 different traditional recipes that you can easily try in your own kitchen no matter how basic it is and how relatively unskilled you may be. With the book's very low price you cannot really go wrong and the other books in the series do form a rather comprehensive little library covering a lot of different food styles.
Each recipe is basic but to the point, accompanied by a small introduction to a given recipe or an explanation for possible customisation or adjustment. The text is easy to follow without being written in flowery prose and accompanied by full-colour inspirational photographs. This is no celebrity cookbook but a basic, quick and dirty guide that can be a companion in your kitchen when needed.
For the price involved, there is nothing you can really fault it for. If you like other books in the same series this can be a "slam dunk" and if you've never seen this series before, you could do a lot worse than giving one or more a try. The recipes are interspersed with a number of timeless illustrations indicating rural-type life. These do not add a lot in this book, in this reviewer's opinion, although it does work in others in the same series. So it is just down to taste but it doesn't disturb either.
