Get the new, already famous Joe Simmer's
ALL AMERICAN Slow Cookin'!

This "sea to shining sea" romp across America's culinary and cultural landscape is pure Simmer, and certainly All-American. Let Joe take you from the beans of Boston to the fish stews of San Francisco, from the stews of the heartland to the soups of the low country, from the chiles of Texas to the Creole delicacies of Louisiana - with lots of unexpected detours along the way!

Shunning the usual cookbook chapters of appetizers, soups, entrees, etc., the innovative and insightful Mr. Simmer groups these All-American recipes into sections reflecting core American interests and values — History, Politics, Sports, Entertainment, and Money.
Joe is truly in rhythm with the pulse of this great nation.

—John "Bucky" Williams, Publisher, The National View  

The slow cooker offers culinary freedom. If the recipes taste good, people will cook them, and Joe’s recipes certainly taste good. And that’s beside the fact that the “invisible simmer of the crock” is the most efficient way of preparing food.

—Adam Schmidt, Author, The Taste of Nations
