Italian Slow Cooking-The Results!

As many of you know, we've been promoting the book ITALIAN SLOW COOKING by food expert Ellen Brown over the past few weeks. As part of that promotion, I've used a slow cooker for the first time in decades and learned quite a bit about cooking Italian foods.

I also used wine in cooking for the first time, tasted lamb for the first time, used various spices--both fresh and dried--for the first time and learned to really enjoy beans (other than baked beans which I always enjoyed). 

Here are the four recipes we actually produced here in the Booksteve Kitchen over the past month or so and I can personally report that all the recipes worked relatively easily and that the results, in every case, led to a truly delicious Mediterranean-flavored meal!

If you like slow cooking and/or Italian food, there is a lot of good stuff in this modestly priced cookbook now due out officially next month but pre-orderable through the Amazon link elsewhere on this page.
