Title: Slow Cook Modern: 200 Recipes for the Way We Eat Today
Author: Liana Krissoff
Published: September 12, 2017, Abrams
No. of Pages: 272
Cover Price: $24.99 Paperback, $18.65 Kindle



With the hundreds, maybe thousands of slow cooker cookbooks on the market, is it really necessary for anyone to purchase yet another one? When speaking of Liana Krissoff’s Slow Cook Modern: 200 Recipes for the Way We Eat Today, the answer is a resounding, “Yes!” There are several aspects of this excellent cookbook that will not only give cooks great ideas, but inspire them to pull out the slow cooker and relax. All of the recipes using the slow cooker call for at least 8 hours to cook, which means you can put the food in early, and it will be finished by the time you return from work, but won’t be overcooked. Another plus is that Krissoff has included side dishes that go with the slow cooked dishes; they can be quickly prepared and help make meals complete. Her suggestions for what to serve with each dish are at the beginning of each recipe.

The recipes included are taken from all over the world – curries from Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, and Jamaica; favorites like Cuban Ropa Vieja from Cuba, an excellent Greek Moussaka, an authentic Russian Borscht, a Chicken Tikka Masala and an easy Chicken Mole. We also really liked the Chicken with Spanish Chorizo and Peppers, and it was very easy.

There are recipes for basics, such as stocks, ghee, dried beans, quark, and Dulce de Leche. You’ll also find a unique array of vegetarian and vegan recipes.

The photography is excellent, but the dishes are so pretty in the pictures, it’s difficult to decide which recipe to try next. The only thing missing is a chapter on desserts; they can, of course be made easily in the slow cooker, but you’ll need to consult one of your other cookbooks for them.

So why do you need another slow cooker cookbook? Because this one is different, inspiring, and fitting for modern cooks; you’ll use it often with excellent results.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
