Is this something that a slow cooker (aka crockpot) can do?

I don't know, but I think it probably could. I live and die by my slow cooker.

On one of my foreign postings (of which I had several) I got to know the French ambassador (in Baghdad OMG | :OMG: ) quite well. Talking food (well, he was French) we got on to the subject of Bouillabaisse He maintained that there was no set recipe for it, but just a method. Early in the morning in Marseille the husband would go off fishing and the wife would gather together whatever vegetables were to be had (yes, garlic IS a vegetable! Laugh | :laugh: ) and put them in a pot on the back of a banked down stove for the day, and go off to work for the day herself.

In the evening, hubby would come home with whatever fish was damaged/could not be sold, and that would be chucked in to the pot, and the stove fired up to full speed ahead. When the fish was cooked, the meal was eaten.

I tried this for the first time on Friday when we had some friends coming in, and it worked perfectly in the crock pot. Chuck in all the veges first off (but NO potatoes - anathema) and leave it on low all day. A couple of hours before the meal, chuck in the fish, and whack the pot up to high, and serve with fresh baguettes.

I make no claim for the quality of the meal beyond the fact the all the guests, husbands and wives separately, emailed or texted me the next day to congratulate me on the bouillabaisse. Nobody mentioned the baguettes. Shucks | :-\
