Slow Cooker Revolution
by America's Test Kitchen
No current Talk conversations about this book.
I was wary about this book when it arrived as the reviews of the internet rated it as a) the best crockpot cookbook out there and b) too complicated by far for it to be helpful to anyone. I am happy to say I fall into the first category and not the second. I found this book amazingly helpful and inspiring and I can see wanting to do dozens of these recipes in the coming year. ( )
I only add cookbooks to My Books after I have successfully tried recipes from them!!
The ATK Slow Cooker Trilogy has information about products on the market in 2015-16 and technique. It favours using a microwave to soften onions and bloom aromatics, as opposed to using a skillet. When published, the books in this series were superior to other slow cookers books.
The recipes are often slow cooker versions of ATK/Cooks Illustrated, and take the same approach. Some recipes are supposed to be definitive authentic home food; others are standardized versions of interesting restraurant recipes. All are subject to a demanding system ( the ATK brand secret sauce). The number of recipes is impressive, but many of the recipes are not useful except as one-time tests.
Many useful recipes but for me the best feature was the explanations as to why the techniques work. This knowledge can be carried to other slow cooker recipes. I stuck to the soup, stew, and pasta sauce recipes; everything I tried got rave reviews from my family. I have the smaller Slow Cooker Revolution magazine with only 60 recipes that was on sale in early 2012. When I spotted this expanded version in the library I grabbed it immediately. I've checked it out 3 times and will probably end up purchasing my own copy.
This book has been sitting in our kitchen counter always due to constant flipping of pages searching for good recipe menu for the day and truly I love what it has to offer with the great recipes easy to follow instructions and mouthwatering dishes what more can I ask for from a cook book. Wonderfully slowcooker meals has been revolutionized in my home and my family just loves it. Great thanks I feel like a super chef.
The 200 recipes in this family friendly collection deliver a revolution in slow cooking--with added convenience, big, bold flavors, and America's Test Kitchen's guarantee!
