Overview

From the leading authority on speed cooking comes the groundbreaking cookbook that inspired a generation of cooks—now updated and revised for today's tastes and sleek, ultrasafe machines

From the elegant to the ethnic to the traditional, Cooking Under Pressure contains a wealth of flavor-packed recipes for fast, healthy, and delicious meals developed for the modern pressure cooker—a magical appliance that turns out foods in one-third (or less) the standard cooking time without sacrificing flavor or aroma. Lorna Sass introduces us to an eclectic array of dishes that can be prepared on a whim, including classic osso buco (18 minutes), chicken gumbo (9 minutes), and risotto (4 minutes, without stirring!). Even chocolate cheesecake and Grand Marnier bread pudding are done to perfection in short order. Plus, the dramatically shortened cooking times make it possible to prepare cholesterol-free, high-fiber ingredients such as grains and beans at the last minute. The pressure cooker is the cook's best friend!

Nice book, good recipes but not just a basic book. Great beginning info on how to use a pressure cooker.   I wanted simple, fast recipes, this book had good recipes but most of the ingredients are not something I usually have on hand.  I may use this more as I get use to using my new Pressure cooker and want to expand.

I am new to Pressure Cooking and bought this book and another by Lorna Sass....Pressure Perfect. Both are wonderful and must haves for anyone beginning the journey of pressure cooking. Wonderful and tasty recipes and clear instructions and guidance about all things pressure cooking. Her Chicken with Lentils and Spinach has become a family favorite. Enjoy!!!

This book is very informative if you use a pressure cooker. It is helpful if you are a first time user of the pressure cooker or an experienced user. The recipes are easy to follow. There are recipes for basic items such as stocks and soups and other selections such as risotto and desserts.
