If you’re looking to buy someone a Slow Cooker Recipe Book for Christmas, these are my all time favourite 5. I have quite a collection of Slow Cooker Recipe books but I always find myself going back to these ones again and again.
1) Ultimate Slow Cooker Book Over 100 simple, delicious recipes by Sara Lewis
2) 200 Slow Cooker Recipes by Sara Lewis
3) 200 More Slow Cooker Recipes by Sara Lewis
You’ll notice the first 3 are by the same author Sara Lewis, I would recommend absolutely any book written by her. I’ve rarely had a duff recipe and she’s given me the confidence to go beyond Stews!
There is a little overlap between the first two, but if you’re buying a gift the first one is much nicer looking but has half the number of recipes.
4) DK The Slow Cook Book by Heather Whinney
The reason I love this book is because for each recipe there is a slow cooker method and the traditional method. So, if I forget to put food on in the morning, there is still time to rustle up dinner. I also love the fact that it has a Recipe Chooser at the beginning of the book, choose the type of meal Vegetarian, Chicken, Pork etc and it lists, with pictures a selection of meals.
5) Soups for your Slow Cooker by Diana Peacock
We’ve tried quite a few recipes out of this book; Chinese Pork and Noodle, Mixed Fish and Vegetable and Chargrilled Red Pepper and Tomato. What we found is that many of the recipes are more substantial than soups and are meal in themselves.
