Overview

100 one-pot dishes for the slow cooker, the oven and the stove-top are wonderfully easy to make. Once you have put the ingredients into the casserole, you just leave them to cook while you get on with something else. There are pot-roasts, stews, braises, curries, breads and puddings from all over the world - from India, through the Middle East and the Mediterranean, to Eastern Europe and Russia. All the recipes for the slow cooker can be prepared in advance and left to cook during the day, so when you get home from work there is a tasty supper waiting for you.

Dishes for the oven and stove-top are also slow cooked, taking a minimum of 1 hour to bubble away. Many of the recipes use inexpensive ingredients, including beans, lentils and cheap cuts of meat - which are deliciously succulent after hours in the pot. Perfect for the family table!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Like Michele Scicolone (The Italian Slow Cooker), British chef and TV personality Thompson (Real Family Food) seems to have unlocked the potential of this much-maligned appliance, using it to turn out such fare as Seafood Laksa, Moroccan Spiced Roast Chicken, and Rich Maple Crème Caramel. Note that these recipes often make use of the stove or oven to build flavor and texture. VERDICT Those suffering from slow cooker cookbook fatigue will find new inspiration in this beautiful book, with a tidy layout and bright photographs that will erase unpleasant memories of bland, colorless slow-cooked duds.
