Product Description

About the Author

Sally Vaughan-Johnston is a professional chef, food writer and food stylist. This is her third collaboration with the ladies of Best of Bridge -- a stellar collection of recipes that will be treasured for years to come.

What is the Best of Bridge?

In 1975, at a weekend getaway, eight women friends had an idea: Since a consistent highlight of their decade-old bridge group was the food they prepared and enjoyed together, perhaps they should think about writing a cookbook. This spur-of- the-moment notion was the impetus for The Best of Bridge, which went on to become one of the most successful brands in Canadian publishing, with more than three million books sold.

Written in a welcoming style, the recipes are easy to execute, yet produce "gourmet" results. Their unique approach, which includes jokes to keep cooks smiling, has ensured a faithful following. The Best of Bridge recipes are staples at potlucks across the country, and the generation of children raised on them is now cooking for themselves. "We get lots of mail from people looking for specific books to give to their adult kids," the Ladies report. "They want to make dishes that were always served at family celebrations. Our recipes have become part of their domestic traditions."

As the Ladies would say, "You should have these books. We've tested, tasted and revised. We promise you'll love every recipe."

I am new to the slow cooker and purchased several cookbooks. Two were for fairly exotic with complex recipes requiring very expensive ingredients, producing strange results. that did not appeal to my family. So I was thrilled to see this cookbook from Best of Bridge. But, now I have tried several of the recipes and they are certainly easier with accessible and reasonably priced ingredients but BLAND. I am so disappointed that I put my brand new slow cooker on Kijiji to sell. Not for me, I guess.

I have tried a lot of slow cooker cookbooks over the years, and this is my hands-down favourite. It has a great variety of recipes, including a decent vegetarian section. It's a nice departure from so many of the cookbooks that basically involve a hunk of meat and a can of cream soup - there is NO cream soup to be found!
The recipes vary from great takes on old standbys (like the chicken stew and dumplings, which is excellent) to newer twists like Turkey Korma Meatballs, which were delicious! I have made at least two dozen of the recipes and have had only one flop - and when I posted about my disappointment on their Facebook page, they did some troubleshooting and figured out for me where I went wrong! (My red wine vinegar had gone rancid - not the cookbook's fault at all!)
There are occasionally some more unusual ingredients (like sambal oolek, Asian chili paste) but they are used in multiple recipes. Most of the recipes require usual staples.
The authors have come up with some great techniques for enhancing flavour and minimizing mushiness - many veggies are added in the last 20 minutes of cooking.
Prep time varies anywhere from 5-10 up to 40 minutes, depending on the recipe. Often there is a little chopping to do when you get home, to throw in the last ingredient.
Highly, highly recommended if you'd like to use your slow cooker more and are seeking healthy recipes that won't turn to mush.

Since the 70's I've been using The Best of Bridge cookbooks, I have them all. This slow cooking style of cooking suits my family because we are so busy. So far I have only tried the Pulled Pork recipe which was awesome. I would recommend The Best of Bridge Slow Cooker receipes to everyone

Though I have not tried all the recipes, the ones I did try are excellent - great cookbook from the Best of Bridge. Both my daughters that were recipients of this cookbook have high praises on the content. Excellent!

Like the recipes in this book. The typeface is interesting and easy to read. It is too bad that a 2-page recipe is divided by unrelated pictures - makes it difficult to refer back first page of recipe. Great price!

There are a lot of great recipes and they are dishes my family would want to eat with ingredients already in the house. Perfect for any time of year but especially the summer months when you don't want to heat up the house.
