UPDATE: The two winners of the giveaway are Tiffany K. and Kittee – congratulations!
The nice folks over at Harvard Common Press let me know that Robin Robertson—seasoned chef, food blogger and highly acclaimed author of 19 well-known cookbooks—will be releasing her latest cookbook, Fresh From the Vegan Slow Cooker, in early October, and are offering two free hot-off-the-press copies through this blog post. I’m excited about this new release because I already own two of Robin’s cookbooks, Vegan Fire and Spice and Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker, which I love, refer to and use often.
Robin’s new cookbook is filled with innovative ideas, tips and recipes for your slow cooker, which include dips, pâtés, innovative soups, filling main courses and desserts. It’s also a great reminder that slow cookers are not only a convenient tool in the kitchen, but also amazing vessels for creating a countless array of unique and delicious recipes.
One fresh and novel idea among many included in Robin’s cookbook is her Puttanesca Pizza (pictured above). Homemade dough is placed into the vessel to create a deep-dish style pizza, which looks and tastes absolutely amazing. After about 20 minutes, it creates a beautiful aroma and, when it’s done, produces a perfect crust with a pillowy soft center. During cooking time, the toppings develop a complex taste and texture, creating the perfect pizza without a lot of work. I love this recipe and method for its ease and innovation, which is a common theme throughout Robin’s new cookbook, which includes other amazing recipes like caramelized onion soup, seitan ropa vieja, slow-cooker pho and french toast bread pudding.
