Slow cookers move into the fast lane

Forget ordinary chili and beef stew. Use your slow cooker to produce such dishes as Normandy Chicken with Apples, San Pasqual Beef Shanks with Black Beans and Chocolate Raspberry Strata. They're among 150 tempting recipes in "The Best Slow Cooker Cookbook Ever," by Natalie Haughton (HarperCollins, $17.95). Folks with fond memories of Morton's might want to drop by Dougherty's Restaurant, at 223 E. Chase St., tomorrow night. Bob Talbott, owner, with his wife, Janis, of the former wine and fancy eats shop in Mount Vernon, has a photo display there. Refreshments in the old style of Morton's will be available.

Natural interest

More than 4,433 natural products retailers were among the 11,248 people who visited the recent Natural Products Expo East at the Baltimore Convention Center, according to show producer New Hope Communications. Attendance was up 21 percent over 1994, showing an increasing interest in this segment of the food, health and personal care markets, New Hope said.

Seafood survey

Tuna once again topped the list of Americans' 10 favorite types of seafood in 1994, according to the National Fisheries Institute of Arlington, Va. Numbers 2 through 10 are: shrimp, Alaska pollock (used in frozen fish fillets), salmon, cod, catfish, clams, flatfish (such as flounder and sole), crabs and scallops. The average American ate 15.2 pounds of seafood in 1994, the institute reports.
