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.

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.

The perfect guide book for a novice slow cooker owner. Well laid out, easy to read and navigate, with mouth-watering illustrations that really do encourage you to get in the kitchen and get started. Excellent value for money in itself, it leads the way in showing the cook how to produce tasty meals without breaking the bank at the supermarket. In addition, it isn't top-heavy on meat based recipes and offers loads of great vegetarian options - the Chilli Black Bean Stew is a knockout. Don't be put off if you're a single person, most of the recipes can be portioned and popped in the freezer - I might have to get a bigger one!

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.
