Cooking with just one pot is convenient and fun. It also opens, quite literally, a world of possibilities since all the major cuisines have traditions (and pots) that allow you to cook, if not a meal, then a hearty dish in just one cooking utensil. Arranged in chapters according to the type of pot used, this book includes classic recipes for soups, stews, curries, casseroles, tagines, paellas, minestrones, fondues, kedgerees, chowders, boiled and steamed dishes, and much more. Many of the recipes in this book can be prepared using a crock or slow cooker. In any case, the final chapter - Tabletop Pot - will have more than 50 recipes for slow cookers alongside fondue and other ethnic tabletop cooking pot dishes. Many chapters also include, under Extras, some basic recipes such as stock in the Soup Pot chapter or Bechamel sauce in the Oven Pot chapter, so that the book is self-contained. "Classic One Pot Cooking" is a family cookbook with solutions for every occasion, from family lunches and suppers to elegant dinner parties.
