The slow cooker has been a true boon for the busy chef, but until now, most slow-cooker recipes have been developed with an eye toward "forgetting" about the cooking rather than creating memorable dishes. That's about to change. With "Secrets of Slow Cooking", even those with the most hectic lifestyle can create unforgettable meals with very little effort. Concentrating on dishes that are best made in a slow cooker, author Liana Krissoff presents classics as well as new tastes. Beginning with a discussion of how to choose the right slow cooker, Krissoff offers more than 60 recipes for extraordinary slow-cooked food. From appetisers to vegetables to main dishes to desserts, here are foods that will delight family and friends - Duck Confit, Soy-Glazed Beef Short Ribs, Wild Rice with Cherries and Orange, Apricot and Chocolate Bread Pudding and Chewy-Fudgy Brownies, to name but a few. "Secrets of Slow Cooking" will take your slow cooker from a convenient appliance to a treasured kitchen necessity.

Author Biography - Liana Krissoff
Liana Krissoff is a freelance cookbook editor and also the author of STC's Hot Drinks for Cold Nights. She worked as a cook at a small restaurant in semi-rural Lovettsville, Virginia, before realizing that she had learned more about food and cooking from her mother (herself a former professional cook who grew up on a nearly self-sufficient farm in western Pennsylvania) than she ever could in a busy, hot, cramped commercial kitchen. She lives and works in Florida. Kirsten Strecker is a still-life and food photographer working in both the United States and her native Australia.
