Plug it in and Cook with French Flair
I d bet that if French cooks could get their hands on Michele Scicolone's "French Slow Cooker," which is filled with smart, practical, and convenient recipes, they d never let it go. Dorie Greenspan, author of "Around My French Table"
With a slow cooker, even novices can turn out dishes that taste as though they came straight out of the kitchen of a French "grandmere." Provencal vegetable soup. Red-wine braised beef with mushrooms. Chicken with forty cloves of garlic. Even bouillabaisse. With "The French Slow Cooker," all of these are as simple as setting the timer and walking away. Michele Scicolone goes far beyond the usual slow-cooker standbys of soups and stews, with Slow-Cooked Salmon with Lemon and Green Olives, Crispy Duck Confit, and Spinach Souffle. And for dessert, how about Ginger Creme Brulee? With "The French Slow Cooker," the results are always "magnifique."



Praise For The French Slow Cooker

"Here’s what I know about savvy French home cooks: They love great tasting food. And if making that great tasting food is practical and convenient, they love it even more. I’d bet that if French cooks could get their hands on Michele Scicolone’s French Slow Cooker, which is filled with smart, practical, and convenient recipes, they’d never let it go."
— Dorie Greenspan, Around My French Table
