Who needs a recession to remind us how easy it is to make delicious meals for minimum cost and maximum flavour? And who needs reminding how much the versatile slow cooker can contribute to saving money while still delivering great meals? Slow cookers use the energy of a light bulb so that makes them much cheaper to run than turning on your oven to cook a variety of different foods. What's more, they can turn a tough, cheaper meat cut into a deliciously tender morsel to be savoured and enjoyed. Who better to extol the virtues of the versatile slow cooker than New Zealand's leading cookbook author, Robyn Martin! After the tremendous success of her first slow cooker book - it's into its third reprint - Robyn has launched this new book with totally new recipes to help keep the magic and innovation in slow cooker cooking. All recipes are photographed, ingredients are readily available and don't require a mortgage to purchase, and true to her quick and easy style of cooking for busy people, Robyn's recipes provide a no-fuss approach to getting the most from your slow cooker. There is plenty of variety here to sharpen the appetite of the bored cook in us, which is bound to make this book a new best friend in the kitchen.
