About the Book:

Slow cookers are a Pinterest staple and a nostalgic favorite, but traditional slow cooker food can be bland, overcooked, and underwhelming. Food writer Sarah DiGregorio has reinvented slow cooking for a generation that cooks for fun and flavor. With a foreword by Grant Achatz, a modernist chef and huge advocate of elevated food in the humble slow cooker, ADVENTURES IN SLOW COOKING, takes a fresh approach to reclaim this versatile tool without sacrificing quality or taste.

ADVENTURES IN SLOW COOKING isn’t just about getting dinner on the table: Sarah DiGregorio has tested countless techniques to ensure that your slow cooker can make truly delicious food like herb oil poached shrimp or the most perfect sticky toffee pudding for dessert. She brings her expertise into the daunting project of rethinking how to use this magic appliance—such as throwing a biryani dinner party with the slow cooker at the center of the table.

Showcasing a beautiful, engaging design, inviting color photographs, and 120 original, innovative recipes thoroughly tested in a variety of brands of slow cookers, ADVENTURES IN SLOW COOKING provides a repertoire of delicious food for any time of day. Each recipe provides a timeframe as well as information on whether the dish will hold well on warm, providing flexibility for work and dinner schedules when possible. Inside you’ll find ideas for flavorful sweet and savory slow cooker dishes, including:

  • Whipped Feta, Red Pepper and Olive Dip
  • Granola with Pistachios, Coconut and Cardamom
  • Italian Deli Mozzarella-Stuffed Meatballs in Lots of Sauce
  • Spicy Kimchi and Pork Ramen
  • Orange, Olive and Fennel Chicken Tagine
  • Daal with Mango and Mustard Seeds
  • Oxtail and Short Rib Pho
  • Corn, Mushroom and Zucchini Tamales
  • Peach-Orange Blossom Jam
  • Matcha-White Chocolate Pots de Crème
  • Cardamom-Molasses Apple Upside-Down Cake

Sarah DiGregorio also provides ingenious tips and tricks that will help cooks get the most out of today’s slow cookers—few of us knew that our kitchen workhorses could succeed in such diverse tasks.

Complimentary refreshments will be served.
