Product Description

Book Description

Using the slow cooker method is a great way to save money as well as time, because the majority of the ingredients used are inexpensive and easily available. The Slow Food Movement was the first offshoot of the broader Slow Movement and has expanded to include over 80,000 members in over 100 countries. In 2005 the slow cooker was the fastest growing range of small kitchen appliances in the UK.

I bought this as a present for my mum, i'm super pleased, it's full of delicious recipes, well laid out with simple and easy to follow instructions and tips, each recipe comes alongside a beautiful large colour photo of the finished dish. Lots of categories to choose from like meat, puddings, soups & drinks to name a few, so you're never stuck for something new to try. Also has a great introduction, with so many tips on using your slow cooker & preparing ingredients. Excellent book, Highly recommend!

This is an excellent book, with clear instruction and very well presented, all the ones I have tried have been excellent.

The only downside is most of the recipes are in Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook: 200 Slow Cooker Recipes (Hamlyn All Colour Cookbooks) which is by the same author, and currently £2.69, So if you already have that book I would not bother getting this one, or if your on a budget I would go for the cheaper one.

If you like your books well presented though, this is defiantly the one to go for.

One of the main reasons I bought a slow cooker was that I wanted tasty, flavourful meals without needing to create lots of mess, or spend hours on my feet. This book does have some nice main meal recipes in it, but frankly it wastes a lot of space with recipes for hot drinks and vegetables - why on earth would you cook carrots in a slow cooker, as opposed to a conventional hob or even microwave? Surely, the main appeal of a slow cooker is that it allows you to add the food, go away and leave it, and come back to it after work when your food is cooked. Neither do I see how using the slow cooker to make desserts which require previous cooking on hobs etc. is either practical or desirable. Overall, the book shows the wide range of food you can do in a slow cooker, but it escapes me why you would bother to do some dishes in a slow cooker when you must also pre-cook them in other appliances so it seems rather fruitless to crowbar the slow cooker in at the end.

This book is just wonderful. Having around 20 differing cookbooks on my bookshelf, this has to be the most versatile, and most used of them all. While enjoying people for dinner (and cooking for my family), but workin/studying full time, this book will take all the pressure of cooking when you're rushing in from work, or picking the kids up from school. With recipes ranging from 2 hours or 10 hours in the slow cooker you can plan a meal for whatever the circumstance/time allowance. In addition, this book has an amazing variety of dishes, from soups and casseroles to puddings, meat loafs, curries and drinks .... a beautifully simple book I can only highly recommend it. Recipes include: gingered carrot soup, salmon chowder with lime and chilli butter, mujaddarah, lamb hotpot, dolmades, smoked salmon timbales, brandied duck, walnut and green peppercorn terrine, malaysian beef and aubergine curry, steak and mushroom pudding, braised oxtail with port, mince and macaroni, bobotie, Thi bo kho, kleftico-style lamb, spiced pork chops with sweet potato, kashmiri butter chicken, caribbean chicken, gingered chickpeas, pumpkin and carrot cobbler, pilaf's, risotto's, squid in puttanesca sauce, saffron baked potatos, figgy pudding with cinnamon custard, jewelled rice pudding, baked vanilla cheesecake, classic creme brulee, triple chocolate cake and many many more recipes.

Ignore the two star review, I think this book is brilliant! Lovely modern pictures (no soggy carrots or boiled chicken skin), really inspiring and easy to read recipes, and a wonderful chapter on puddings. If I'd known a slow cooker was so versatile I would have bought one years ago, and I do think this book will help you make the most out of your slow cooker. Yes, with most of the recipes you do have to fry off your onions and brown your meat in a separate pan, but you don't have to (the end result just wouldn't be as tasty or look as appetising). Recipes include:

Celeriac soup with roquefort toasts
Salmon chowder with lime and chilli butter
Bloody mary soup with chilli oil
Brandied duck, walnut asnd green peppercorn terrine
Steak and mushroom pudding
Burgundy beef stew with horseradish dumplings
Kleftico style lamb
Kashmiri butter chicken
Pistachio and apricot pilaf
Red thai pumpkin curry
Spiced red cabbage
Coconut snd lime rice
White chocolate bread and butter pudding
Figgy pudding with cinnamon custard
Classic creme brulee
Sticky toffee apple pudding
Rum and raisin spotted dick
Poached apricots withcracked black pepper

There is a small chapter on chutneys and conserves which I don't think I will use, but the chapter on drinks looks good. I really fancy the lemon cordial recipe and I will also try the hot jamaican punch. Either way these two chapters are very small so it's no big deal if you don't use the recipes in them. There are more than enough other recipes to inspire you here.

This book contains many recipes that I want to try out. I have made several recipes out and they all have been thoroughly enjoyed. The Dum Aloo was divine, a spiced potato and spinach dish- I made a quick nan bread from one of Anjum Anand's books to go with it to mop the delicious sauce up. The Danish meatballs were so easy and very tasty, I just served them with rice and diced beetroot. I haven't been disappointed with any of the dishes that I have made.

This is my third slow cooker that I've owned. The first one was a cheap one that even on low dried everything up and was consequently a pain to wash as everything stuck to the bottom and sides. The next one was too big. So after having abandoned the idea of making use of a crockpot I decided to give it another go. I knew part of the problem was some of the older slow cooker recipe books were dreadful, especially some of the ones written for the American market. This time a friend kept telling me about delicious meals that she had made using this book, amongst others, she is also a keen cook so I decided to have another go. It has proved to be an excellent decision. It is comforting to come home from work to a meal that is simmering away with little more to do.

There is a little bit of preparation to do either in the morning or the night before but that isn't too much to expect if you want tasty quality food. This isn't one of those books that takes several cans of processed food and asks you to pour it over some meat and cook it. So you would expect to have to do some chopping and searing first.

The only niggle I have is that a lot of the recipes (and the photographs) are simply taken from the Hamlyn 200 slow cooker recipe book that she has also written.
