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?Airecipes 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; Proven?bal 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.

    • gormet slow cooker

      Ive tried several recipes in this book, and overall they have been quite good. I may not be the best person to review this book, because my husband and I don't eat red meat , and many of the recipes in this book are for that.. The curry chicken under Indian was great!

    • Great dinners even my children love!

      I am very impressed with this book. As a busy mother of two boys under four, I use my crock pot at least 4 times per week. This book gave us some new favorites, like the chile verde. So easy to make and delicious.
