Book Review- Best-Ever Slow Cooking by Catherine Atkinson and Jenni Fleetwood

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

I went shopping for my husbands birthday at a bookstore. This is always a dangerous errand for me because I love browsing books, especially cookbooks! Then when there is one that I find interesting AND it is on sale, it is virtually irresistible to me. This was true last week. I succumbed and bought the Best-Ever Slow Cooking cookbook by Catherine Atkinson and Jenni Fleetwood. It is a creative and comprehensive cookbook with elegant recipes for every season. As my daughter continues to do well with her crockpot cooking, I thought it was time to expand our horizons and see what was ultimately possible using this amazing cooking device. I was swept away by the myriad of around-the-world recipes in this cookbook from Pigeons in Stout to Mediterreanean Duck with Harissa and Saffron  to Coconut, Tomato and Lentil Dhal to Moussaka to Pork Chow name just a few! And the recipes provide a step-by-step direction and also include the calories and nutritional information. It is going to be a lot of fun trying out so many interesting recipes!
