As an owner of a slow cooker, I’ve always stuck to the basics such as a hot pot or a good old casserole and I’ve always wondered exactly what else could be accomplished with this wonderful cooking method. What Elizabeth’s book does not only helps you to learn how to make the most from your slow cooker but also gives you tips on looking after it, helping to convert other recipes to this method as well as accompanying a whole range of delicious recipes to get you started.

There’s something for everyone’s taste within whether you like vegetarian food or a soup, some deserts or a good solid main course with cuisine from around the world to cite a Lamb Tangine or a Jambalaya as well as solid British favourites like Lucky Irish Stew with Dumplings for example. It’s a wonderful addition to anyone’s kitchen and as such I can’t recommend it enough especially if you love the idea of a throwing everything into one pot and coming back to a beautifully cooked hearty meal. Great stuff.

It's hard to find a good book with slow cookers in mind. Perhaps this one might be worth taking a look at.
