Useful for cooking with fresh ingredients in the small slow cooker
on April 23, 2008
This was an extremely helpful book for a single person who likes to cook, and who just bought a small (1.5 quart) slow cooker. Some of the recipes I haven't tried yet, but I'm looking forward to the cheese fondue! The beef burgandy came out great, as did the lentil and butternut squash stew. The recipes use mostly fresh stuff, and don't rely on weird canned products (no adding a can of cream of something soup). It is a British book, so some of the expectations of which ingredients are common aren't quite accurate for the US (they give special instructions on where to find sweet potatos, but have about six recipes for lamb dishes, for example). There is a good selection of meat and vegetarian recipes.
