Description: In Art of the Slow Cooker, stews simmer lazily while you play. Chicken cooks gently in a fragrant broth while you run errands, finish up work, or just have fun. And the best part is that while you're occupied elsewhere, the ingredients are being transformed -- flavors are blending, balancing, and blossoming. 

Andrew Schloss has developed 80 recipes for soups, hearty stews, succulent braises, vegetarian dishes -- even desserts -- that bring slow-cooked meals to new heights. Each chapter offers recipes for both simple everyday meals and spectacular dishes perfect for entertaining. Midweek the heady aromas of Herby Minestrone greet you and your family as you walk in the door after work and play. Then, on the weekend, none of your dinner guests will guess that the Pork Ribs Braised with Fennel and Olives that they are feasting upon cooked all day while you were out. 

The versatility of this cooking method will amaze you. Meat loaf emerges from the slow cooker with a velvet texture that baking in an oven can't match, and terriyaki chicken comes to the table enameled with pungent flavors. Classic international dishes, like Osso Buco Milanese or Curried Vegetables with Dal are naturals for slow cooking, and no method makes an authentic pot of home-baked beans easier or better. Baking in a slow cooker is a revelation. Everything from homey Chocolate Pudding Cake to an incredibly moist holiday fruit cake can be baked in a slow cooker without ever heating up the kitchen. 

With cooking charts to help with timing, plenty of tips on tools and techniques, and advice on which type of slow cooker is best for you, art of the slow cooker will get you out of the kitchen so that you can spend more time with your friends and family.
