Applying slow-cooking methods—braising, roasting, grilling, and more—to recipes such as one-pot mac and cheese, honey-glazed pig roast, and root vegetable borscht, cooking teacher Schloss (The Art of the Slow Cooker) demonstrates how low temperatures can yield delicious results. The handsomely photographed recipes in his latest cookbook take longer than one might expect (scotch butter short ribs cook for 72 hours), but the cooking time is largely inactive. Schloss devotes one chapter to slow cookers, and the other eight include slow cooker instructions for select dishes. VERDICT Readers who enjoy cooking with a skillet, Dutch oven, baking dish, or sous vide machine as much as with a Crock-Pot will love this versatile collection.
