About THE CHEF AND THE SLOW COOKER
In The Chef and the Slow Cooker, Hugh brings a chef’s mind to the slow cooker, with 100 recipes showing readers how an appliance generally relegated to convenience cooking can open up many culinary doors. He shows how your trusty slow cooker can still surprise you—you can use it to poach fish, to steam-roast a chicken or leg of lamb, to make intense stocks and broths, and of course to braise the most tender short ribs. It’s an approachable, fun, comforting collection of recipes, spiked with global influences and elevated by smart cooking. Using flavor profiles, combinations, and techniques never before seen in a slow cooker cookbook, The Chef and the Slow Cooker proves that even though slow cookers are an old-school technology, they will guide you to better meals in this contemporary world. All while giving you the ability to walk away and live your life while dinner is cooking.
