Opposite the pressure cooker's speed stands the leisurely pace of the slow cooker, also enjoying new popularity. Despite the hyperbole of the title, The 150 Best Slow Cooker Recipes breaks out of the usual soups/stews confinement of other Crock-Pot cookbooks. Judith Finlayson has gone to some trouble to create spicy Caribbean Pepper Pot Soup, full of tropical vegetables and hot pepper. Hearty Carbonnade reproduces the famous Flemish beef casserole, complete with its obligatory beer. Rarely seen elsewhere, South Africa's national dish, Bobotie, here boasts curry-spiked meat under an egg topping. Indian dishes, both meat and vegetarian, also appear. Even cake is not out of the question if the slow cooker is prepared as Finlayson suggests. There are enough temptingly tasty recipes here to keep those slow cookers plugged in 24 hours a day.
