Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Slow cookers are popular for good reason: They’re the ultimate kitchen problem solvers. If you’re watching your budget, they’re well worth the $30 they cost since they can turn the cheapest cuts of meat into unctuous, mouth-watering results worthy of a five-star restaurant. Slow cookers also do the hard work, cooking for hours while you’re out of the house only to come home to a meal just about ready to eat. And since slow cookers keep food warm, they allow different family members to eat at different times: a practical option in a world of staggered schedules.

Yet, slow cookers have an image problem. Most home cooks use them for cold weather meals only, while others think slow cookers can only produce food that’s mushy, bland, and watery or rely solely on shortcut ingredients like spice packets, bouillon cubes, and bottled sauces.

No longer does this must-have kitchen tool deserve to be stored away when spring months hit. In Year-Round Slow Cooker, home cooks will find 100 delicious, modern, practical slow cooker recipes featuring seasonal produce. Recipes speak to the home cook whose palate is more sophisticated and who wants to incorporate seasonal produce into all of her meals.

Organized by season, Year-Round Slow Cooker features notes about the featured seasonal ingredients as well as invaluable tips throughout to help cooks maximize the power of the slow cooker.

Review:

"Slow-cooker cooking has come into its own in recent years, and for many busy households, it's become a kitchen staple that allows for home-cooked meals even on harried weeknights. While most of us equate the slow cooker with winter comfort food, Cheney, a cookbook author (Tasting and Tasting Club), recipe developer, and magazine columnist, shows its versatility and ability to cook fresh, seasonal produce, making it a year-round asset. Better still, her recipes avoid packaged, processed ingredients such as bouillon cubes, package mixes, and store-bought sauces. Instead, her focus is on fresh ingredients and flavorful slow-cooked food. She divides the book by season and offers useful sidebars on everything from pomegranates to Jerusalem artichokes and rhubarb. Recipes typically serve four to six and include prep-time estimations as well as cooking times, which help with menu planning. Many of Cheney's recipes are accompanied by appetizing full-color photos that are guaranteed to inspire, from summer's triple-apricot 'French toast' bread pudding and spring's osso bucco with gremolata served over saffron risotto with peas and spring onions, to fall's Thai tofu, Swiss chard, and sweet potato curry and winter's short ribs with hoisin sauce, tangerines, and scallions. She also offers up unusual slow-cooker recipes that include surprising ingredients such as cod with puttanesca sauce and boneless leg of lamb. Best of all, Cheney's mouth-watering and varied recipes will appeal to even the most limited palates." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
