Today in NPR’s Kitchen Window series, food writer Michele Kayal describes how wonderful it can be to come home to a warm, fragrant kitchen where a slow cooker has been working all day. Her ode to the versatile kitchen appliance includes a brief history of slow-cooking in other cultures, from Hawaii’s underground ovens, known as imus, to Moroccan tagines. An all-American slow cooker works beautifully for ethnic dishes as well, like this Thai-Inspired Chicken Stew, which develops a richly complex curry flavor despite only 20 minutes of active cooking.
