The French Slow Cooker

The French Slow Cooker - Michele Scicolone Most cookbooks are pretty bad.Most "device" cookbooks are worse, where by device I mean for a specific appliance or technique, such as "on the grill", microwave, or in this case the worse offender: The noble slow cooker, or "crock pot".This book is terrific. Most GOOD cookbooks are lucky if there's 2-3 good ideas to scrape together like fond off a crusty pan. This cookbook is filled with good ideas and recipes that would convince even the most stalwart skeptic of the slow cooker to sneak it out of the basement for another whirl. In fact, as I type this, I've got the classic "Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic" going in my cooker.Prep time: 2 mins.Ok, 5, because I DID have to go in the basement.For the wine.
