Book Description

Dec 31 2000
It's time-tested, efficient, and one of the easiest ways to cook up a great meal. If you've never used a clay pot before, then you're in for a treat. It's easy to learn the basics: here's the information on selecting the right size pot, deciding on glazed or unglazed, washing and preparing it, heating it up safely, cleaning it, and storaging it. But, the point is the food, of course, and these recipes feature a wide range of special stews, super soups, vegetarian entrees and sides, popular poultry dishes, class-act meat meals, fabulous fish, better breads, and desserts--all with calorie, fat, sodium, and fiber counts. Quick tips suggest ingredient substitutions, timesavers, and more. Try such fare as Hickory Steak with Winter Vegetables, Carrot--Fava Soup with Roasted Peppers, Cheese Scalloped Potatoes, Asian Chicken with Basmati Rice, Mahi-Mahi with Persimmons, Sesame Rolls, and Ginger Poached Pears--all marvelously yummy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Clay pot cookery obtuse June 20 2001
Format:Paperback
When I ordered this book, I had hoped to find some basic, practical recipies. Instead, many of the recipies are based on ingredients that might do for special occasions, but not for everyday family dining on a modest budget. For instance, the author seems only to like "boneless, skinless" chicken breasts; I find that these "supremes" do not hold up well cooked this way - too dry. It's almost as if she is attempting to devise recepies that cater to the health- concious fanatics and yet produce an entree with a bit of flavor left! I tried the one whole-chicken suggestion, but found the anise had lost most of it's flavor by the time the bird was done. What a pity. Perhaps I'll do my own book-"Basic Meals in a Clay Pot"

This book I bought despite the negative reviews. I am well pleased with the book as it provides a wide variety of recipes from the basics through quite elaborate. The lamb pastitio is great dish. Lots of variety in dishes.
Perhaps not all are Monday to Friday practical but lots of great ideas; our copy is well marked up with tabs highlighting favourites.
If you were going to choose one clay pot cook book this is what I would choose.

4.0 out of 5 stars At least one Family Favorite Recipe! Sept. 25 2005
By L. Phelan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Easy Turkey Meatballs, page 58. I serve it over egg noodles mixed with peas. Everyone loves it! My claypot broke after more than 10 years of use, and I have a new one on the way. My son has been asking me "when are you going to make the turkey meatballs?" quite often, so it's on tap to make as soon as the new claypot arrives. I will be trying some of the stews and soups this fall.

I find clay pot cooking easy and this cookbook is one of the easiest. It doesn't have fancy recipes and it doesn't tell you that you need several types of clay cookware. I have only one large clay pot and can cook small quantities to large quanties. Most of these recipes are for a medium clay pot.
I soak my pot while cutting up my veggies and preparing the ingredients.
Whether it is a clay pot or cooking other ways I usually do not follow a recipe word for word, food for food.
I either leave something out because I don't have it or substitute for an ingredient I may have in my kitchen.
This has a good section on how to cook with clay pots and in the back is a list of herbs and what they go good with, list of measurements (ex: 1 pound of asparagus = 16 to 20 spears) and a quick substitution lists (ex: flour as thickener, 2T = cornstarch 1T or quick-cooking tapioca 2T)
