For Christmas, my mother found a slow cooker cook book first published in 1975, entitled Extra-Special Crockery Pot Recipes: time saving meals for the gourmet appetite. I had a wonderful time flipping through the recipes, a book filled with Classics! Small in size, but BIG with information, and written so well. I thought I'd do a little more research about the author. I was pleased to stumble across Lou's website and even more pleased that she was quick to respond to an interview request.
Lou has written over 50 cookbooks covering a wide variety of food types and cooking techniques (including several books with William Sonoma) She currently resides in California and enjoys tending to her prolific garden and cooking light. I had a chance to bounce a few questions off of Lou... here is what she had to say.
