[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Harvard Common Press partners with CulinartMedia to launch an app version of the bestselling cookbook, "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook." Over 100 delicious recipes, each selected by authors Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann to bring the exciting flavors of today's kitchen to consumers who want a cooking experience that delivers both great results and the functions, convenience and fun of a culinary app.
The authors take a completely fresh look at cooking with this popular appliance and bring slow cooking and its unbeatable convenience and practicality to today's busy families. When there's just no time for prep, try Orange and Honey Chicken Drumsticks or Country Ribs with Onions, Apples and Sauerkraut. For (slightly!) less hectic days, we've included Tangy Tomato Brisket or Lentil and Red Pepper Soup.
Stay out of the kitchen when guests arrive with Duck Breasts in Port Wine Sauce or wake up to breakfast with Hot Apple Granola Oatmeal. Hensperger and Kaufmann offer dishes for every occasion, without compromising taste, quality or variety. And, "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes" showcase the best of home cooking while taking advantage of a global melting pot of flavors - so cooks can serve Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya one day and Japanese Beef Curry Rice another. All the classic slow cooker recipes are also featured, plus adventuresome and innovative dishes too.
Beth Hensperger's career as a prolific food writer and educator began when she was chosen as the guest cooking instructor for Bon Appetit. She has gone on to author more than 20 cookbooks, including the bestselling "Not Your Mother's(R)" series. She is also the author of The Bread Bible, winner of a James Beard Book Award and has been nominated twice for an IACP Cookbook Award. Hensperger writes a food column, "Baking with the Seasons." She contributes to national and online cooking and lifestyle magazines, including Food and Wine, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Prevention, Veggie Life, Working Woman, Family Circle and Cooking.com.
