Publisher Comments:

Although the slow cooker has experienced a renaissance over the past several years, the discriminating cook is still hard-pressed to find slow cooker recipes worthy of serving at a dinner party recipes that reflect concern about ingredients, flavors, and appearance. For these cooks, comes The Gourmet Slow Cooker, an upscale approach to this new-old phenomenon by author and food journalist Lynn Alley. With fresh ingredients and imaginative recipes, you can create delicious meals to serve with pride to your guests. Drawn from slow cooking traditions from around the world, the recipes include Lamb Shanks in Tomato Sauce from Greece; Apricot Chicken from India; Chicken Mole from Mexico; White Truffle Risotto from Italy; Provenćal Chicken Stew from France; and Potato, Cheddar, and Chive Soup from the United States. In keeping with the sophistication of the food, each recipe is accompanied by wine or beer suggestions. The slow cooker can be so much more than a repository for nacho cheese dip. Paired with The Gourmet Slow Cooker, your everyday dining will be elevated from the mundane to the gourmet, while freeing you from hours of hard work in the kitchen. A slow cooker book for discriminating cooks, with 16 full-color recipe photographs. Includes chapter introductions to each region, focusing on the slow-cooking traditions and techniques from that country, and local wine or beer suggestions for all 60 recipes. According to a study by the Betty Crocker Kitchens, 80 percent of U.S. households have a slow cooker.

Review:

"Go ahead and sneer. I love my slow cooker....Even food snobs like me are realizing their potential, albeit a little later than the more than perhaps 100 million Americans who already own one." Mark Bittman, New York Times

I ordered it online and would not have purchased it if I'd known it included recipes for slow cooker DESSERTS! Really? There is no way that Chocolate Chip Cookies (!!) prepared in a slow cooker could be considered "gourmet". Still, the some of the stew and soup recipes look promising.

This is an excellent slow cooker cookbook. I have several, but refer to this one often. The book is divided into sections based on which country the recipes represent. They may not be authentic; but, all the recipes I've tried are delicious. The directions are clear and easy to follow. They don't use conveniece foods like canned soups, as many slow cooker books do. I highly recommend this book for people who are serious users of their slow cookers.
