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."

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.

I live in a cold climate and slow cooker recipes are the way to go. The aroma, after you walk in the door after work, cold and hungry, is like a big, warm hug of deliciousness.Published 3 days ago by Bey King
I love this cookbook. I use my slow cooker a lot in the colder months. I've had mine for a couple of years - I bought this one for my son for a gift. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Edwina Bishop
