The Ultimate Slow Cooker Cookbook

Written by

Clare Andrews


09 November 2023

Who’s the author? Clare Andrews is an award-winning home cook and author of The Ultimate Air Fryer Cookbook, a Sunday Times bestseller that has sold over 82,000 copies. A keen cook since childhood, Clare returns to her beloved slow cooker in this new book, finding new ways to create delicious, budget-friendly meals that fit around a busy schedule. As a kitchen gadget fan and expert, she now has a dedicated following on Instagram.

What’s it about? Building on the success of her first book, Clare turns her attention to the slow cooker to show how this much-loved kitchen gadget really is the best when it comes to making the most of budget-friendly ingredients to produce flavourful, healthy weeknight meals for all the family.

Like air fryers, slow cookers are an incredibly cost-effective way to cook food, using a fraction of the energy of a conventional oven. Slow cookers are not just for dreary stews but can be used for all kinds of dishes and with 80 mouth-watering recipes – from casseroles and curries to risottos and puddings – this book will show you how to make the most of your marvellous machine, whether you are the proud owner of a new slow cooker or have pushed yours to the back of the cupboard due to a lack of inspiration.

Recipes we love: Butterbean, Chorizo and Pesto Stew, Piri Piri Chicken, Sweet Potato and Spinach Curry, Butternut Squash Risotto, and Pear and Apple Crumble.

Perfect for: Fans of Clare’s previous book, followers on her Instagram account, and any busy home cook looking to maximise their favourite kitchen gadget with time- and energy-saving recipes for the whole family.
