Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this collection of over 200 recipes for slow cookers, Louise (The Complete Crockery Cookbook) gives cooks and civilians a range of convenient options. Culled from a variety of sources, Louise's compilation uses a can opener almost as often as a knife, but the variety, ease of preparation and crowd-pleasing flavors will keep diners happy. Standards like pea soup, beef stew, chili, fondue and roasts dominate, but more sophisticated fare such as beef fajitas, risotto, salmon poached with white wine and herbs and Chicken with Champagne and Cream will also satisfy. Imaginative uses for chicken, either whole or in part, will make welcome additions to kitchen canon, as well as appetizers like Olives Steeped in Wine, mulled wine and cider, and desserts. Canned cream of mushroom soup seems omnipresent, (even in a recipe for shredded BBQ beef), and some dishes are clearly phoned in (Caleb's Brat's 'N Beer, Easy Chili Cheese Dip). Still, those seeking new uses for that dusty cooker will appreciate Louise's variety this winter.
