This should not be confused with other cookery books with the same title. It looks a bit like an old style paperback, poor quality paper and no photographs,associated with the recipes.
The most off putting part was the lack of photographs although I appreciate that homemade dishes rarely look like the photographs in the books they at least give you a feel of what the completed dish should be.
The book starts with 23 pages of hints and tips, some quite useful but many of the type "You can watch your food cooking through the glass bowl" I had guessed that. The recipes are then divided into six sections:-
1/ Just Vegetables
2/Rice, Pasta, Grains and Beans
3/Meat, Poultry and Game
4/Fishy Things
5/Sweet and Sticky Desserts
6/Tempting Bakes
In all about 100 recipes, which to be fair have comprehensive instructions and each have an introduction with the advice to use a tin/dish which fits your oven and start with the instruction "Remove the lid from the halogen oven" which I must admit is a pretty good start. Some of the recipes have an unusual twist for example on the back cover it states "All the traditional favourites such as Shepherd's Pie....." This is the first time I have found Shepherd's pie without potatoes and carrots and parsnips instead.
In summary if this is going to be your first halogen cookbook buy one of the other ones with the same or similar titles for example the one by Paul Jones & Leah Meads, however if you have other books and you do not mind the lack of photographs this book will add to your collection of recipes.

Bought the book because we had just boought a halogen oven and we wanted to get the best out of it. The book is somewhat restricted in its recipes but that was okay because we wanted to walk before running with anything exotic! The book has been very useful being right up to date with halogen cooking; you cannot for example use normal oven timings and temperature as everything would be burnt or overdone. What halogen cooking has given us is the ability to watch what is happening inside the oven, economy, speed and the ability to clean very easily whatever it is you have cooked. The book gave us the confidence to experiment from cheese on toast right up to a full blown roast meal. I would recommend it to any new user of a halogen oven.

Using a Halogen oven for the first time I did not find the book very helpful. I was hoping for more basic information on timings and temperatures. As for the recipes, PLAIN cooking is what I seek not necessarily gourmet meals. Disappointing.

This is a 'basic' book that covers most items about halogen ovens and cooking, which is very suitable for the beginner wanting a number of answers quicktime. I have looked at a number of halogen cook books, and some were very poor in their content or value, but this book appears to tick all the boxes for the price I purchased it for.

I gave the book 4 stars, mainly due to not trying out the good range of recipes given, but on description, they appear to provide some very good and many examples as to what may satisfy a few taste buds, so perhaps I should have waited longer with the scoring!.

This is a basic book, black and white. It outlines how to use and care for your halogen cooker. It also has a few, emphasis on few, ideas. If you want a chicken recipe, there is only one I think, same with pork etc. So don't expect to be inspired with lots of things to do. But I used it to get the basic idea on how a halogen cooker worked. That way you can modify your own recipes.
Now I know that vegetables take much longer to cook than meat, they go in first.

this book isc a good enough book with recipies but is the same as one i had aready bought for less cash a week or so before, the only difference is the name on the front, so i would adise folks to checkout all books of this nature and check the name of the person who has put the recipies in it.

I ordered this thinking it was similar to the Halogen cooking made simple book as the front cover looks similar, but was so disappointed at the size of book and more so at the uninspirational recipes and lack of colour photos. In fairness it does give a description of what halogen cooking is all about and what is needed, but as I only wanted some recipes I returned it for the one I intended getting in the first place, which is far superior in every way with its clear concise instructions and glorious colour photos.
