What cook isn't looking for recipes that are fast, delicious, and nutritious? The Pressure Cooker Gourmet provides just that, with 225 dishes that are simple to prepare, cook in as little as 15 minutes, and retain all the natural nutrients that can be lost with other cooking methods.
The beauty of pressure cooking is that it allows the home cook to make traditionally labor-intensive dishes like stews, braises, briskets, and pot roasts literally in a matter of minutes, opening up vast new possibilities for weekday cooking.
In a thorough introduction, Victoria Wise explains how to use the modern pressure cooker (which has been completely reengineered for safety and ease of use) and what it particularly excels at, including basic beans and grains. Then she presents outstanding dishes such as Lamb Shank Braised with Garlic and Rosemary (cooking time 25 minutes), Sunday Chicken Belgian Style (25 minutes), Risotto with Shrimp, Fennel, and Saffron (18 minutes), Tamales with Black Bean and Plantain Filling (16 minutes), In-House Clam Bake (20 minutes), and Peanut Butter Swirl Cheesecake (30 minutes).
