Sexy, comforting and completely fabulous slow cooking has arrived!

Ricardo Larrivée (just “Ricardo” to his legions of fans) is one of Canada’s handful of genuine “celebrity” chefs in the style of Jamie Oliver or Bobby Flay. Ricardo has a huge and passionate fan following based on his easy, breezy cooking style highlighted on his Food Network Canada show, Ricardo and Friends. Ricardo has expanded his television success into a multimedia empire, with a French-language magazine, radio and web spots, and more.

Ricardo’s slow cooker book—packed with 150 colour photos, engaging design and sixty-five great recipes—is the perfect combination of personality and subject. Only Ricardo could make slow cooking sexy and shake off its staid, traditional reputation. This book shows you how to make the comforting (Lentil Ragout with Poached Eggs, Beef à la Carbonnade), the unconventional (cheesecake and crème brûlée) andthe completely fabulous (Veal Cheeks with Figs, Maple Beer Ham). As they say on the show, “Ooh, Ricardo, si!”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully photographed... you want to eat the pages The book has a great range of recipes: stews, vegetarian, even desserts. The recipes are fairly easy to follow and Ricardo offers some great tips on how to get the most out of your slow-cooker. I would say the recipes can be mostly classifies as "comfort food", definitely a keeper. I hope he considers making a similar book for pressure cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best and easy! It started with my sister, who bought it first, and she made for Christmas the Sticky toffee pudding which is our fav at one of our local restaurant,  now, this is even better, so we go to her place for this dessert instead of ordering it!  Also, my two boys got the book, and so on and so on.... in my family. Highly recommend this recipe book to anyone.  Very good recipes. P.S. also try the Creme brulee, just perfect!
