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!"

Ended up buying this cook book and are working our way through each recipe. The crock pot lasagne is great--as are the chicken wings, scalloped potatos, pork satay, ribs (stellar!).
