It does seem strange that I who have made much of my career about getting people out of the kitchen in record time with my books, Roasting and Microwave Gourmet should find myself playing with slow cookers. I know this is a trend; but that is not what is driving me. I hope it will be one more way that I can help people to eat very good food made in the time that their busy lives have available.
It is by far the most time consuming and most difficult testing that I have done as each recipe requires tying up a machine for many hours and if things don't work out it is back to column A. My first attempt in this series a chicken stew with lentils was a modified disaster.
I am setting myself the challenge of meals that can be quickly put together and allowed to Slow cook while people are at work so that they come home to a delicious meal.
Wish me luck
