I d bet that if French cooks could get their hands on Michele Scicolone s French Slow Cooker, which is filled with smart, practical, and convenient recipes, they d never let it go. Dorie Greenspan, author of Around My French Table
With a slow cooker, even novices can turn out dishes that taste as though they came straight out of the kitchen of a French grandmere. Provencal vegetable soup. Red-wine braised beef with mushrooms. Chicken with forty cloves of garlic. Even bouillabaisse. With The French Slow Cooker, all of these are as simple as setting the timer and walking away. Michele Scicolone goes far beyond the usual slow-cooker standbys of soups and stews, with Slow-Cooked Salmon with Lemon and Green Olives, Crispy Duck Confit, and Spinach Souffle. And for dessert, how about Ginger Creme Brulee? With The French Slow Cooker, the results are always magnifique.


Michele Scicolone is the author of sixteen cookbooks, including The Italian Slow Cooker, Entertaining with the Sopranos, and The Sopranos Family Cookbook, a New York Times bestseller. Her 1000 Italian Recipes and A Fresh Taste of Italy were nominated for James Beard and International Association of Culinary Professionals Awards. A cooking teacher and Italian culinary tour guide, she writes about food, wine, and travel for many publications, including the New York Times, Bon Appetit, Family Circle, Food & Wine, and the Washington Post. She lives in New York City.
