Author(s): Joan Bishop
Joan Bishop is New Zealand's crockpot and slow cooker doyenne. The proof of that is that over 120,000 copies of her book have been sold to date. Her major 2010 revision of her bestselling book was extremely well received. Now she has revised it again. Why so soon? Because Joan has discovered something incredibly significant about the 'new generation' slow cookers. They don't cook nearly as slowly, and so many slow cooker recipes will not work! Joan has gone back to the drawing board on every single recipe, changing cooking times and in some cases the amount of liquid. As a result, no matter the age of your slow cooker is, these recipes are never-fail. Illustrated throughout with colour photographs and with recipes for soups, vegetable dishes, rice, light meals, beans and lentils, chicken dishes, beef, lamb and pork meals, desserts, and interesting extras such as hot spiced cider and mulled wine, this book is the slow-cooker Bible.
Joan Bishop is an award-winning food writer. She is a former manager of Sunbeam Appliances where her interest in crockpot recipes began. She writes a popular food column and is the author of three cookbooks.
