Betty Davies is the force (of nature!) behind the Slow the Cook Down food blog.
Betty Davies’s blog, Slow the Cook Down, is about taking life down a notch—stopping to enjoy the smell wafting from the roast chicken you just pulled from the oven. Here, there’s no reason to hurry or stress; dinner will get done and it will be delicious! Instead, pour a glass of wine and settle in to try something new.
Raised in a traditional English home, Betty grew up with a weekly Sunday lunch of roasted meat and potatoes and all the trimmings. It was a time when the family sat down together, caught up on the week and had a glass of wine. (Well, her parents did anyway!)
Now, all grown up, Betty does Sunday (and every day) her own way; taking it slow, cooking up something delicious, glass of wine in hand. She cooks for the pleasure of it, the chance to experiment, and the opportunity to try something new. There’s nothing subtle about her food. It’s big-flavor cooking with real personality. A lot like Betty!
Now living in Toronto with her husband and cat, Rufus, Betty loves discovering all the tastes that Canada has to offer, whilst bringing that bit of British tradition into the mix. Slow The Cook Down is a destination for cooks who truly love to cook. From the easy, everyday meals with added flare to the pull-out-all-the-stops Sunday suppers.
