Venison Sausage Casserole - Video
Another thermal cooker recipe by Mr D from Mr D's Kitchen. A wonderful casserole made with red wine, chestnuts and venison sausages. If you don't like venison though why not use pork or beef sausages and remember this recipe like all of mine will work well in a slow cooker.

To celebrate 100 years since Elizabeth David CBE was born I have taken one of her recipes and adapted it for the thermal cooker.

Carbonnade flamande - Flemish Stew
This Flemish beef stew, or carbonnade flamande, is the national dish of Belgium. It is the perfect dish to serve to friends on a cold winters evening. I love to serve it with crispy potatoes in their jackets but it would be equally lovely with smooth mashed potatoes which would just soak up the lovely rich gravy.

Pot Roast Rolled Leg of Pork
I bought a nice piece of pork the other day, about 1 kg in size and wanted to do something rather than roasting it in the conventional way. I therefore decided to pot roast it in white wine with leeks which are now in season. I used boned and rolled pork leg but shoulder would be just as good.
