Always loved James Martin, great book, great recipes, great food photography
7 February 2014
I was initially going to buy the Kindle version but after reading lots of negative reviews about the Kindle version of this book I decided against it. I have a Kindle Paperwhite and apparently its no good on a Paperwhite. fair do's so I bought the real book. Actually, I prefer my cookery books in the real world where I can hold them and look at them and browse the pics etc. so overall my decision to go with the physical book was probably best for me.
I, like a lot of others, also misinterpreted the title initially. I 'thought' it was a recipe book by the delectable James for recipes to make in your slow cooker, but it is NOT. Its all in the title really, I and others just didn't read it properly. Its food that is lovingly slow-cooked - usually in the oven in a dutch oven, roasting dish or a stock pot etc. Great! I love long, slow cooking with my cast iron dutch oven and figured there would be lots of great recipes here for me, and there is.
Its a great book! Easy to follow recipes, great photography that makes you hungry looking at it and will be a superb staple cookbook in the winter months when we all want warming up here in Scotland when its freezing with gorgeous, delicious food.
