Prepare quickly, cook slowly and savour every mouthful.

Slowly-cooked meals are easy, fuss-free and delicious with melt-in-the-mouth textures and intense flavours.


Cook it Slowly! cookbook 

Just 20 minutes or so is all it takes to prepare the majority of the recipes, then you can leave them to cook slowly.

Every recipe can be cooked either on the hob or in the oven and also, where appropriate, in a slow cooker.

Each triple-tested recipe has straightforward instructions with cook’s tips and nutritional information.

Cook it Slowly is split into three chapters:

  • MEAT-FREE, which includes a fabulous selection of vegetable and fish dishes
  • MEATY MAINS, which speaks for itself!
  • PUDDINGS, BAKES & CAKES, an irresistible choice of sweet treats
