You simply can’t beat coming home at the end of a long day to the heady aromas of a slow meal cooking wafting out from the kitchen.
As the days start to get shorter, and the air chills, thousands of Kiwi households all around the country will be dusting off their Crockpots and slow cookers in anticipation of delicious and hearty winter meals ahead.
Home cooks will also be thinking about trying out new recipes and perhaps being a little more adventurous with their trusty kitchen companion, and they could not be in better hands than with Allyson Gofton, whose earlier slow cooking cookbook sold in its thousands.
In this new book, Slow Cooked, which will be in store from 3 April, Allyson has put together an amazing selection of hearty meals that will satisfy the hungriest members of your family.
These are traditional meals - but often with a modern twist - cooked in the oven or slow cooker. From Rich Pinot Chicken with Mushrooms to Moussaka Lamb Braise, or Pork Chops in Pizza Sauce, these recipes are winners. Filling soups and satisfying puddings are also featured, along with sound information on meat cuts and how to cook them to perfection, and practical tips on getting the best from your slow cooker or oven.
As always, Allyson has budget-conscious families in mind. Slow-cooked food naturally lends itself to the cheaper cuts of meat – and they are often more tasty as the flavours have time to develop.
