The Gourmet Slow Cooker: Simple and Sophisticated Meals from Around the World

Lynn Alley, Author Ten Speed Press $19.99 (120p) ISBN 978-1-58008-489-5
In this volume, Alley (Lost Arts: A Celebration of Culinary Traditions) provides a montage of surprising and intriguing recipes--everything from White Truffle Risotto to Chocolate Chip Cookies--all of which are made in a slow cooker. Chapters are divided by country, and include France, Great Britain, India, Italy, Mexico and the U.S. According to Alley, signature meals, side dishes and even desserts from each of these countries, such as Chicken Mole from Mexico, Eggplant and Pea Curry from India, Pork with Prunes from France and Anise Biscotti from Italy, can be made simply in one pot. Alley includes drink recommendations with each recipe. These are generally wine pairings (with Provencal Beef Stew,""a Cotes de Provence rose or medium-bodied red table wine would do well"") but the author refrains from going over the top to underscore the sophistication angle. For chocolate chip cookies, she writes,""milk is the only proper accompaniment.""
