The author of Cooking in Season shows you how to make healthy ingredients, fresh flavors, and crunchy textures part of your slow-cooked meals.

In this book, you will discover a whole new way to use your slow cooker to make more than one hundred succulent dishes by enhancing them with bright fresh flavors: Tender short ribs in a sweet and spicy sauce are elevated with a crunchy daikon, carrot, and fresh herb salad; zesty chicken-tortilla soup is layered with sweet corn, creamy avocado, and earthy cilantro; and sliced brisket is perked up with a verdant, herb-laden chimichurri strewn with sweet cherry tomatoes.

The slow cooker has become one of the most popular kitchen appliances for today’s busy home cook, and it is easy to see why: comfort has met convenience, with delicious results. The best slow cooking, however, is an art that is only achieved with a little finesse. This book reimagines what the slow cooker is capable of, bringing freshness, color, and texture to the flavorful stews and braises of slow cooking and creating a road map for the modern cook. Rounding out the book, the lush, tempting photography is not only mouthwatering but also inspirational, with visual ideas for textural and flavorful garnishes. Welcome to a whole new way with slow cooking.
