Book Review: The Gourmet Slow Cooker

The Gourmet Slow Cooker: Simple and Sophisticated Meals from Around the World By Lynn Alley

The sub title of this book is "Simple and Sophisticated Meals from Around the World" and I have to say it is perfect subtitle. This book is great way to use your slow cooker but in a way that adds just a little more to the meal. Basically a great upgrade to traditional slow cooker recipes. Any of the recipes would be great on any night of the week but also for a dinner party.

Delicious recipes for cooks who want the benefit of hands-off and easy cooking but prefer to use whole foods and real ingredients. The author also offers up drinking suggestions to go with each recipe. The layout, style and photos of the cookbook just make it a lovely read.

It is a cookbook I would like to own. And I know it is one I would open quite a lot as I use my slow cooker year round.

Favorite recipes: Chicken and dumplings, Pork Stew in Tomatillo Sauce, Dublin Coddle, Beef Burgundy, Provencal Beef Stew, Chicken Piperade, Tarragon Chicken, Artichoke Risotto, Chicken Cacciatore, Apricot Chicken, Beef Biryani and just on and on as you can see.
