Mr D’s Thermal Cookbook took over a year to write and evolved many testers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of them.
Writing a recipe book for a thermal cooker is not as easy as I had though. Developing a way to make something like a Lemon Drizzle Cake meant making around 30 cakes to get the quantities and cooking times correct. At home 95% of all our meals came from our thermal cooker. Friends came to dinner and ended up testing thermal cooked meals. As we cook by gas, using the thermal cooker meant a considerable saving in our gas bill.
When things went wrong like sinking cakes, Lindi and Allan Rush from ‘Thermal Cookware’ in Australia were always there on the end of the phone to give help and support. My good friend Mike Redcar was my main tester using his thermal cooker most evenings to try out new ideas to see if they were working. Jenny my wife was very involved developing many recipes such as the very popular ‘Lamb Biryani’.
