“[Acheson] makes a case for the tried-and-true Crock-Pot in The Chef and the Slow Cooker. Find rich bone broths and plenty of Southern-accented braises–plus Acheson’s fun sketches.”–Food & Wine

“Acheson presents some fresh twists on traditional slow cooker dishes (think braised pork shoulder with fennel and raisins), but where it really stands out from the pack is in showing home cooks how to use the appliances in unexpected ways, from making duck confit and ramen broth to poaching eggs and making preserves. “–Eater

“[Acheson’s] new slow cooker cookbook features plenty of just-fancy-enough recipes like Pot Roast with Charred Onion and Chickpea Salad, along with plenty of cheffy insight into the potential of the humble slow cooker.”–Epicurious

“Cheffed-up recipes for any time of day.”–Tasting Table

“If you’re still using your slow cooker only for retro favorites like chili and beef stew, Chef Acheson is here to rock your world. The master of Atlanta fine dining uses his culinary pedigree to totally rethink the old kitchen workhorse, without sacrificing any of the convenience.”–PureWow 

“Acheson pushes Crock-Pot cookery to new heights, capitalizing on a reliable ‘shortcut that doesn’t sacrifice quality or taste’ for convenience.”–Publishers Weekly
