An inspiring collection of kosher recipes-from the simple to the sublime-all created with the slow cooker
In Jewish Slow Cooker Recipes, the encore to her classic book, Jewish Cooking for All Seasons, Laura Frankel, a respected kosher chef and mother of three teenagers, shares more than 120 easy, delicious recipes for everyday and holiday meals-- all conveniently prepared in the slow cooker-a staple of Sabbath cooking which Frankel affectionately calls her "Shabbat miracle machine."
In this delicious collection, you'll find
- A wonderful range of dishes, from the traditional Sabbath Cholent (a hearty beef and potato stew) and Dafina (the savory Moroccan answer to cholent), as well as Falling-Off-the-Bone Short Ribs, Vegetarian Chili, Spicy Chicken Meatballs, Olive Oil Poached Halibut, Garlicky Pot Roast, Cassoulet, Maple-Pecan Bread Pudding, and Key Lime Cheesecake
- Frankel's signature blending of flavor, convenience, and world-spanning influences
- A tantalizing collection of mouth-watering recipes that you can make for any meal, from appetizers and soups to main dishes, sides, and even desserts and breakfast
Taking familiar favorites, international specialties, and holiday classics to a whole new level, Jewish Slow Cooker Recipes is for every home cook-kosher or not-longing for time-saving, family-pleasing slow cooker meals using the freshest, high-quality ingredients available in your local supermarket and food community.
Laura Frankel is the executive chef of Wolfgang Puck's kosher restaurant and catering business at the Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies in Chicago. After working in hotel and restaurant kitchens, Frankel started a family and began to maintain a kosher kitchen. Unable to find a restaurant in the Chicago area for top-quality kosher cooking, in 1999 she opened Shallots, a restaurant offering kosher fine dining with a produce-driven menu; later came Shallots Bistro in Skokie, Illinois, and a Shallots outpost in Manhattan. The Shallots restaurants were recognized as being among the best kosher restaurants in the United States. Also the author of Jewish Cooking for All Seasons, Frankel lives in Chicago with her three sons. Visit her Web site at www.LaurasKosherKitchen.com.
