Adventures in Slow Cooking & Kitchen Aid Slow Cooker

Mom's old stand-by - the crockpot - has undergone a makeover of sorts and is re-emerging as a reliable tool for even the pickiest of cooks and eaters. With the help of better appliances and thoughtful recipes by talented food writers and recipe developers, the slow cooker is finding its place in the gourmet's kitchen.

James Beard-nominated food writer, Sarah DiGregorio, revamps the slow cooker for the modern home cook, providing ingenious ideas and more than 100 delicious recipes for maximizing this favorite time-saving kitchen appliance and making it easier than ever to use in her debut cookbook, Adventures in Slow Cooking: 120 Slow Cooker Recipes for People Who Love Food.

Slow cookers spark a nostalgia factor in many of us - the orange, brown or avocado green vessel perched on the kitchen counter with a meal magically waiting for us can bring back memories of growing up. Even Sarah shares her first memory of slow-cooker cooking being her grandmother's pot roast.

While these handy devices have been time savers for busy lives, traditional slow cooker food is sometimes underwhelming. I certainly agree with that statement - years ago, I found slow-cooker meals lacking in flavor and having the same type of texture issue - basically mush or meat having a rubbery texture. Those results surely stemmed from memories of my mother putting ingredients in the crockpot, covering them with water and walking away - hence my hesitation to embrace the slow cooker. But recently with quality appliances and recipes - my views have changed and I find myself reaching for the slow cooker more often. 

In Adventures in Slow Cooking, Sarah has reinvented dishes for a generation that cooks for fun and flavor, taking a fresh approach to reclaim this versatile tool without sacrificing quality or taste. For most cooks, it's not just about getting dinner on the table - we want to create delicious, healthly meals without giving up the enjoyment of a tasty experience. Sarah teaches us to use a slow cooker to make fabulous dinners like herb oil poached shrimp or the most perfect sticky toffee pudding for dessert.

The author also wants us to reimagine this appliance for entertaining - and not just for pulled pork or keeping mashed potatoes warm. How about throwing a biryani dinner party with the slow cooker at the center of the table? I'm all for that - sometimes my biggest frustration is getting all the components of a meal hot and to the table when I am entertaining - the slow cooker can remove that worry for me.

This cookbook shares beautiful color photographs, and original, innovative recipes thoroughly tested in a variety of brands of slow cookers which include dishes such as:

  • Granola with Pistachios, Coconut and Cardamom
  • Savory Overnight Oatmeal with Bacon, Scallions and Cheddar
  • Turkey-Spinach Meatballs Stuffed with Mozzarella
  • Spicy Kimchi and Pork Ramen
  • Orange, Olive and Fennel Chicken Tagine
  • Daal with Mango and Mustard Seeds
  • Oxtail and Short Rib Pho
  • Peach-Orange Blossom Jam
  • Matcha-White Chocolate Pots de Crème
  • Cardamom-Molasses Apple Upside-Down Cake

Also provided are tips and tricks to get the most out of our appliances - easy to follow outlines of cooking times, holding times and helpful "good to know" advice. This book truly is a must have for cooks of all levels whether a busy parent, entertainer or gourmet chef - the slow-cooker has taken its rightful spot next to the sous vide and liquid nitrogen cartridge and with Sarah's recipes - can be our go-to appliance for all culinary occasions.

William Morrow, the publisher of Adventures in Slow Cooking is offering three autographed copies of this beautiful book and KitchenAid is supplying three KitchenAid 6-Quart Slow Cookers in our giveaway below open to those with US mailing addresses.

Ricotta-Spinach Polenta with Tomato Salad

Add this recipe to your Bookshelf (click the blue +Bookshelf button).

MAKES 4 SERVINGS


Polenta is often used as a neutral carb canvas for a rich sauce or braised meat, but here the creamy ricotta-and-spinach-enriched polenta is the centerpiece, with a simple little tomato salad on top for freshness. An egg on top is great, but optional.

1 1/2 cups polenta (not instant or quickcooking)
2 tablespoons unsalted
butter, cut into bits
Kosher salt
5 ounces baby spinach (about 5 loosely packed cups)
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
2 teaspoons extra-virgin
olive oil, plus more for the eggs
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Freshly ground black pepper
4 large eggs (optional)
1 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup whole or part skim milk ricotta

1. Combine the polenta with 6H cups water in a 5- to 7-quart slow cooker. Add the butter and 2 teaspoons salt. Cover and cook on LOW until the polenta is thick and tender, about 6 hours.

2. With the slow cooker on LOW, stir the polenta well and then stir the spinach into the polenta in 2 batches, covering the cooker and letting the first batch wilt before adding the second, about 5 minutes per batch.

3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss together the tomatoes, oil, and vinegar. Season the tomato salad with salt and pepper.

4. Optional: Pour a thin layer of oil into a large skillet over medium-high heat and crack 4 eggs into the pan. Season the eggs with salt and pepper and cook until the whites are golden brown, lacy on the edges, and just set in the middle, and the yolks are still a little jiggly, about 3 minutes.

5. Fold the Parmesan and ricotta into the polenta. Taste and season the polenta with salt if necessary. Stir in warm water by the tablespoon if the polenta is looking too thick for your taste-keep in mind it will continue to thicken as it cools. Top bowls of the polenta with the tomato salad and, if you like, the fried eggs.

Good to know: If you're cooking for strict vegetarians, don't use imported Parmesan (the good stuff!) because it's probably made with animal rennet. Instead, seek out a domestic "parmesan" (the okay stuff) that's labeled vegetarian, like the one made by BelGioioso.

ALL-DAY Holds well on warm through step 1 for up to 3 hours
Prep time: 5 minutes Slow-cook time: 6 hours
Finish time: 20 minutes Equipment: 5- to 7-quart slow cooker

  • malorie  on  9/14/2017 at 2:35 PM

    I make a lot of bone broth, and so I am really interested in the bone broth recipe NOT on the stove. That is a long time to hover! Also, I have never made a frittata in a crockpot before, so I think that the bacon onion frittata will be an immediate try as well. :)

  • desdemona246  on  9/14/2017 at 2:39 PM

  • Wulfwyn907  on  9/14/2017 at 4:50 PM

    I would love to make so many of these recipes! It is difficult to choose which first. I want to say the Green Pozole with Pumpkin Seeds, Chicken, and Collards would be first because I love everything in it. Plus fall just screams soup's on. But then there is Parmesan-Garlic Broth which I have never had. I can already imagine all the ways I could use this broth to zip up other recipes, (after I eat my bowl of course. Lol). Oh but there is a recipe for my favorite breakfast, Shakshuka. I had not thought of making this in the slow cooker. How wonderful to wake up with the kitchen already smelling so delicious and breakfast ready in minutes! Oh my goodness! Choosing what to make first has been difficult but fun. I still am undecided but I am definitely, incredibly hungry now.
