There are homey and comforting foods in the American and European style, such as a Rustic Pot Pie Topped with Chive Biscuits and a Ziti with Mushroom and Bell Pepper Ragu, and there are many East Asian, South and Southeast Asian, and Mexican/Latin dishes, too. Beans, which cook slowly under any circumstance, are fabulously well-suited to the slow cooker, and Robin includes such appealing recipes as a Crockery Cassoulet and a Greek-Style Beans with Tomatoes and Spinach. Over 20 recipes for robust chilis and stews include a warming Chipotle Black Bean Chili with Winter Squash and a surprising but yummy Seitan Stroganoff.

Fresh from the Plant-Based Slow-Cooker also provides practical guidance on how to work with different models of slow-cookers, taking into account the sizes of various machines, the variety of settings they offer, and the quirks and personalities of each device. Robin addresses any lingering skepticism readers may have about whether slow cookers can have delicious, meat-free applications, and she shows how to take into account the water content of vegetables and the absorptive qualities of grains when plant-based slow-cooking. Altogether, this new edition offers you an abundance of ways to expand your plant-based repertoire and to get maximum value from your investment in a slow cooker.

Making Artisan Breads in the Bread Machine

Author: Michelle Anderson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/11/2020

Making Artisan Breads in the Bread Machine unlocks all the potential of your bread machine, revealing its surprising versatility and amazing breadth. Delicious, comforting, and authentic artisan breads are expensive to buy at your grocery store or local bakery. Now you can use your bread machine to make them at home for a fraction of what store-bought breads cost. Veteran chef, baker, and food writer Michelle Anderson has put dozens of models and sizes of bread machines through their paces and knows better than anyone what a bread machine can do. Would you like a boule or a baguette with your next picnic or brunch? Would the delectable aroma of a just-made ciabatta or focaccia create the perfect atmosphere for your next pasta supper? Michelle shows you the fastest and easiest ways to make these and many other rustic and comforting breads. Her recipes include breads made from start to finish in the bread machine and others that, because of their shape, are started in the bread machine and finished in a regular oven-the latter still a much easier method than starting from scratch on a counter-top. Rugbrod (Danish rye bread), Irish Soda Bread, San Francisco Sourdough, German Peasant Bread, Pane Siciliano...there's a wide and wondrous world of amazing breads to discover in the pages of this book. You'll even find chapters on cheese breads and herb breads, and an especially delicious one on sweet breads to have for dessert or with your morning coffee. Millions of people are rediscovering the simple, soul-warming pleasures of freshly made, home-cooked bread. It's not a lot of work at all-if you own a bread machine and have a copy of this incredibly inventive and eminently reliable cookbook.

Complete Sous Vide Cookbook: 150 Recipes Plus Tips and Techniques

Complete Sous Vide Cookbook: 150 Recipes Plus Tips and Techniques

Author: Chris McDonald Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/10/2020

Sous vide ('in a vacuum') cooking is the latest trend in home kitchens. Because of their cost and size, sous vide cooking devices were once found only in professional kitchens, but that all changed when affordable models hit the retail market. Home cooks are now embracing sous vide in record numbers. In sous vide cooking, food is sealed in plastic bags and submerged in hot (but not boiling) water for long and slow cooking. The end result is food which is juicy and tender. Cooking sous vide also means that temperatures can be maintained within tenths of a degree, which is essential for certain cuts of meat. The hot water also intensifies flavours and the resulting texture of the food is perfect. Chris McDonald is a brilliant chef who has long used sous vide to create sublime dishes and he now brings this expertise to the home cook. His recipes are spectacularly delicious yet easy to execute. Eight pages of step-by-step photos provide all the necessary information to start sous vide cooking.
