I was slow – it took a while before I started cooking from this book – and that is a shame!

I know the benefits of slow cooking and I would say especially if you are having a party – do the work early and avoid the dreadful last minute stress – the result is fantastic food with minimum effort! (Like it says on the cover)

James Martin makes food with lots of spices. He is hitting taste buds from all over the world.

You may think this kind of cooking is complicated – but it is not, nor does it have to be expensive.

Give it a go – I am sure you will find a new favourite in this book
