275 Soul-Satisfying Recipes – by Judith Finlayson
“My concept of comfort food is warm and welcoming and provides a sense of sustenance — a kind of culinary haven in a heartless world. But most of all it is delicious. When things seem grim, there is nothing like a mouth-watering bite of something delectable to set things right. Or, as the ever-elegant M.F.K. Fisher reflected, “At the end [of a good meal] you know that Fate cannot harm you, for you have dined.”” – Judith Finlayson
This outstanding collection of 275 recipes combines the convenience of the slow cooker with dishes that make us feel better, evoking the warmth of home and family. With everyday favorites, elegant entertaining, and meals that embrace a diversity of international flavours, Slow Cooker Comfort Food is a perfect addition to the kitchen, (especially during those frenetic back-to-school days,) and is destined to become a favourite in Canadian homes.
Responding to requests from her readers, in a unique colour guide on every page, Judith has included tips on halving recipes for single people and couples and has highlighted dishes suitable for entertaining as well as vegan and vegetarian friendly recipes, and a comprehensive feature on “understanding your slow cooker” and food safety.
