Plug it in and Cook with French Flair

“Id bet that if French cooks could get their hands on Michele Scicolones French Slow Cooker, which is filled with smart, practical, and convenient recipes, theyd never let it go.” — Dorie Greenspan, author of Around My French Table

With a slow cooker, even novices can turn out dishes that taste as though they came straight out of the kitchen of a French grandmère. Provençal vegetable soup. Red-wine braised beef with mushrooms. Chicken with forty cloves of garlic. Even bouillabaisse. With The French Slow Cooker, all of these are as simple as setting the timer and walking away. Michele Scicolone goes far beyond the usual slow-cooker standbys of soups and stews, with Slow-Cooked Salmon with Lemon and Green Olives, Crispy Duck Confit, and Spinach Soufflé. And for dessert, how about Ginger Crème Brûlée? With The French Slow Cooker, the results are always magnifique.

Review:

"In the introduction, Scicolone (The Italian Slow Cooker; The Sopranos Family Cookbook) describes the enormous effort — and number of dishes — involved in making traditional cassoulet. She compares that to the ease of preparing the same dish in a slow cooker, the aroma of which made her feel as if she had 'arrived at the farmhouse kitchen of the French grand-mére I never had.' She explains that 'with the help of a slow cooker, it's easy to make homey and inexpensive French food in any kitchen.' Of course there's a recipe for a cassoulet with pork, lamb, and beans; there are also such classic dishes as herbed roast chicken with garlic and shallots; bouillabaisse; Provencal beef stew with black olives; and bacon and gruyére pain perdu (and a few 'out of the pot' essentials, like a lentil salad with bacon. There are desserts, too: lemon pots de créme and a créme caramel. It's comfort food, to be sure, but the French accent elevates the level of sophistication well above that of typical slow cooker fare." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

French cooking using the slow cooker, with 125 recipes.

Synopsis:

Finally a book that combines the fresh, exuberant flavors of great Italian food with the ease and comfort of a slow cooker. Michele Scicolone, a best-selling author and an authority on Italian cooking, shows how good ingredients and simple techniques can lift the usual “crockpot” fare into the dimension of fine food. Pasta with Meat and Mushroom Ragu, Osso Buco with Red Wine, Chicken with Peppers and Mushrooms: These are dishes that even the most discriminating cook can proudly serve to company, yet all are so carefree that anyone with just five or ten minutes of prep time can make them on a weekday and return to perfection.
 
Simmered in the slow cooker, soups, stews, beans, grains, pasta sauces, and fish are as healthy as they are delicious. Polenta and risotto, “stir-crazy” dishes that ordinarily need careful timing, are effortless. Meat loaves come out perfectly moist, tough cuts of meat turn succulent, and cheesecakes emerge flawless.
