Top Customer Reviews
I bought this book on the strength of the reviews. I had never heard of the author (I don't tend to read blogs) and wasn't really expecting too much. When the book arrived and I started to flick through it I will confess to a little initial disappointment. Apart from a few photographs at the front of the book there are no other photographs to accompany the recipes. As a general rule I tend to like lots of photos as they often make me want to cook a recipe that I might not otherwise bother with. Having now had the chance to read it from cover to cover I can say how pleased I am with it. The author has a lovely writing style and the recipes are really simple (very little, if any, pre-browning and onion frying before adding to the slow cooker) and they are just a little bit different. Who knew that you could cook macaroni cheese and omlette Arnold Bennett in a slow cooker. And jacket potatoes that really do come our crispy on the outside and soft in th middle! There are plenty of recipes for soups, curries and stews too but even these are a little more interesting - stifado, Dr Pepper pork, confit duck, chicken liver pate, Kashmiri style leg of lamb and so on.
So, in summary, of my ten plus slow cooker books, this one is definitely my favourite.
UPDATE DECEMBER 2015:- Ive been dipping into this book throughout the year (along with other slow cooker books) and it is still my favourite despite the absence of photographs.Read more ›
Very well written with a light touch. You get the impression of a cook who thinks deeply about her craft. A huge variety of new ideas. If recipes turn out as well as they promise, I'll have solved my present problems for a while.
24/02/15. Well I promised to update so here goes,now that I've had a couple of months to experiment. I duly bought a slow cooker for £19.99 and have had great fun trying out these recipes. Have made Pulled Pork, Chorizo Butter Beans, Falafel, Tarka Dal, Mushroom Orzotto, Carmelised Onions, Cuban Black Beans and Brownies all of which were great. I definitely learned quite a bit in the process (who knew you should cook black beans in mineral water?) Mushroom stroganoff wasn't so good but I did put in celery instead of leek and the flavour didn't seem right. Was still able to eat it. Only disaster was Lemon Polenta Cake which turned out very sour not sure why. But nothing in life is perfect and I've found many more useful recipes than in most of my other cookbooks. Looking forward to trying many more. This book really does deserve 5 stars and I've sent my two sons a copy each
However, would mention that most of the recipes are for 3.5l slow cookers. I only mention this as it does not say anywhere in the description and some may find it useful!
It does have some great ideas though, and is nicely written. So maybe one for the more adventurous cook/palate.
