The chopping, stirring, simmering and tasting along the way, makes the experience...I believe that cooking food slowly is the ideal method for transforming basic ingredients into something very special.' - Dean EdwardsCook Slow features 90 delicious slow cooker recipes, all with conventional oven options, which will make you fall back in love with food again.
