    Book Description
    From Publishers Weekly
    In this volume, Alley (Lost Arts: A Celebration of Culinary Traditions) provides a montage of surprising and intriguing recipes-everything from White Truffle Risotto to Chocolate Chip Cookies-all of which are made in a slow cooker. Chapters are divided by country, and include France, Great Britain, India, Italy, Mexico and the U.S. According to Alley, signature meals, side dishes and even desserts from each of these countries, such as Chicken Mole from Mexico, Eggplant and Pea Curry from India, Pork with Prunes from France and Anise Biscotti from Italy, can be made simply in one pot. Alley includes drink recommendations with each recipe. These are generally wine pairings (with Provencal Beef Stew, "a Cotes de Provence rose or medium-bodied red table wine would do well") but the author refrains from going over the top to underscore the sophistication angle. For chocolate chip cookies, she writes, "milk is the only proper accompaniment."

    Book Description
    The slow cooker can be so much more than a repository for nacho cheese dip—use it to raise the standards of your everyday dining from the mundane to the gourmet. THE GOURMET SLOW COOKER brings an upscale approach to this new-old phenomenon, using fresh ingredients in imaginative recipes that you can create all during a day's work. Focusing on traditional one-pot meals from various cultures, recipes such as Apricot Chicken from India, Molé Poblano from Mexico, Neopolitan Truffle Risotto from Italy, and Boston Baked Beans from the United States are delicious meals truly fit to serve guests.
