74 recipes from a year of thermal cooking in Mr D’s Thermal Cooker – ideal for cooking at home or on the move.
Extract from the first page of the book:
Welcome to the world of Thermal Cooking. It’s not a new science – there are records of thermal cooking in Medieval times, and anyone who has watched BBC’s ‘Wartime Farm’ will know about cooking in a hay box – but it is a way of cooking that Mr D’s Thermal Cooker, by using vacuum technology, takes into another dimension.
Thousands of people are using thermal cookers – at home, in caravans, boats, motorhomes, beach huts, tents and lorry cabs.
After initial heating on the hob, the food slow cooks in Mr D’s without any power, and then keeps safely hot for hours. This means a meal can easily be taken out, while still cooking.
Lots of Mr D’s are simply used at home, but others cross the Atlantic, race around the Fastnet, bump across the Sahara in the back of Land Rovers, have worked as ‘the kitchen’ on the spray-swept floor of a cross-Atlantic rowing boat, and graced the table at the opera.
The vacuum insulation also makes Mr D’s ideal where a steady temperature needs to be kept, for instance to make yoghurt, cheese or beer, to keep food chilled or make ice-cream.
Whether you are already a committed thermal cook or whether you are new to it, this book should give you lots of inspiration to get cooking with a Mr D’s, and save time and money, whilst getting the best out of your ingredients.
