Slow Cooking to Savor

Taking time to prepare slow-cooked dishes and giving the flavours the time they need to meld and mellow is the ideal kitchen antidote to hectic modern life. The books in this collection are nothing short of inspiring, so dig into the 2,000-plus recipes. Your time will be well spent – and the results deliciously rewarding.

Slow Cook Modern

Slow Cook Modern

Liana Krissoff

Practicality is foremost in this collection of 150-plus slow-cooker recipes. These are dishes that look after themselves and emerge after eight hours ready to feed a hungry family. For each, Liana Krissoff provides a simple game plan for prep in the morning or the night before, and the evening’s finishing touches. The recipes are big on spices and there’s plenty for vegetarians too.
The Slow Mediterranean Kitchen

The Slow Mediterranean Kitchen

Paula Wolfert

Low and slow is the name of the game in Paula Wolfert's characteristically authoritative ode to Mediterranean cuisine. Monkfish and clams simmer in garlic sauce while lamb with quince and okra is baked in a tagine. The recipes are all from Wolfert's fieldwork. Many come from Mediterranean home cooks, others come from professional chefs or from colleagues and fellow researchers. All are richly rewarding.

Beverly LeBlanc

LeBlanc is a late adopter of the slow cooker but, she writes, “Like any convert, I want to share my enthusiasm.” Meat and poultry is where the slow cooker comes into its own, and more than half the 100 recipes are from within this chapter. Dishes such as Tuscan Lamb Shanks, Iraqi Beef Daube, and German Sauerbraten are an eclectic bunch, and may just convert others to the slow-cooker cause too.
