The best-selling author of The Italian Slow Cooker demonstrates how to adapt classic French dishes for convenient, high-flavor results, providing coverage of such favorites as Crispy Duck Confit, Bouillabaisse and Ginger Crème Brûlée. Original.
Finally a book that combines the fresh, exuberant flavors of great Italian food with the ease and comfort of a slow cooker. Michele Scicolone, a best-selling author and an authority on Italian cooking, shows how good ingredients and simple techniques can lift the usual “crockpot” fare into the dimension of fine food. Pasta with Meat and Mushroom Ragu, Osso Buco with Red Wine, Chicken with Peppers and Mushrooms: These are dishes that even the most discriminating cook can proudly serve to company, yet all are so carefree that anyone with just five or ten minutes of prep time can make them on a weekday and return to perfection. Simmered in the slow cooker, soups, stews, beans, grains, pasta sauces, and fish are as healthy as they are delicious. Polenta and risotto, “stir-crazy” dishes that ordinarily need careful timing, are effortless. Meat loaves come out perfectly moist, tough cuts of meat turn succulent, and cheesecakes emerge flawless.
Slow-cooking techniques for delicious dishes from the Mediterranean region, from a New York Times–bestselling cookbook author! With the combination of tradition, innovation, and ease that have made her recipes so popular, Michele Scicolone gathers intriguing dishes from every corner of the Mediterranean and streamlines them for the slow cooker. The range is eye-opening: from simplified and freshened classics like Greek Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta to Israeli Sweet and Sour Meatballs to Moroccan Vegetable Tagine to Coffee-Caramel Flan from Spain. Scicolone also serves up a profusion of fascinating lesser-known dishes: Creamy Polenta Lasagna, Port-Braised Chicken from Portugal, Spiced Frittata from Tunisia, and Bandit’s Lamb—as well as her own seductive creations, like Cannoli Cheesecake.
