Overview

A chapter devoted to the sous vide technique will tempt the technophiles, while the slow-grilling section is a revelation for those who man the grill every weekend. Brought to life with 36 enticing photographs by award-winning photographer Alan Benson, this valuable package sells the dream of cooking and living well and is a must-have for dedicated home cooks.

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.

I've done nearly every recipe and all have been amazing. Scary a bit to trust it at the low temperatures but a couple recipes-into the cookbook I had not a question that the next recipe would work. For the comment earlier asking about the uncovered chicken & potatoes recipe: Keep it uncovered as stated. The other recipe with the mushrooms is going for a creamier sauce therefore keep it covered to retain the liquid. The chicken & potatoes is going for crispness of the potatoes & chicken skin. Though the skin crisps up the interior stays amazingly juicy. Stand-out best recipes (IMHO) are the slow cooked turkey breast, slow fry pork loin & overnight cooked cheese cake. Those recipes alone make this cookbook a winner.

I've made several of these recipes. Not a loser in the bunch. Especially good is the English Toffee sticky pudding.Best I've ever made. The roasts are so flavorful   And slow  cooking is easy.  I also did the slow roasted chicken with potatoes. Not an error.  Delicious!

I'm concerned that one recipe for Slow Roasted Chicken w/ Potatoes and Herbs doesn't say to cover the chicken while cooking, but the Slow Roasted Chicken w/ Sun Dried Tomatoes and Wild Mushrooms does. I've looked for ways to contact the author and any errors the book may have with no luck. Is there anyway to find out if both recipes should have the chicken covered while cooking?
