Fast Favorites Under Pressure Book Review:

Fast Favorites Under Pressure by Blue Jean Chef Meredith Laurence is written with the smaller household in mind. These days, so many pressure cooker recipes are written for bigger pressure cookers and designed to serve 6 to 8 people. When you're dealing with pressure-cooking, however, cutting a large recipe back to feed just 2 to 4 people is not always straight-forward. Fast Favorites Under Pressure does all the work for you, with every recipe guaranteed to work in a 4-quart pressure cooker. The recipes also double very easily so if you're cooking in an 8-quart cooker, you'll have no trouble making twice as many "fast favorites." Fast Favorites Under Pressure also includes tips and tricks for pressure cooking so you can be even more successful with your pressure cooker. Blue Jean Chef Meredith Laurence has created more than 100 recipes for the 4-quart Pressure Cooker that are sure to become family favorites, including Chicken Alfredo Rotini, Red Wine Braised Short Ribs, Lime Shrimp with Spicy Tomato Grits, and Mint Chocolate Fudge Cake with Ganache. From soups to pasta, meat to seafood, grains, vegetarian and dessert, all types of appetites will have choices to get a meal on the table in a fraction of the time.

Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure Book Review:

Under pressure to prepare a quick, nutritious dinner? Under pressure to reduce your fat and cholesterol? When the pressure's on for a great vegetarian meal on the run, turn to Lorna Sass's second guide to the safe and delicious use of the pressure cooker. Following the phenomenal success of Cooking Under Pressure, this collection of recipes dispels the myth of the difficult-to-use pressure cooker -- which is in fact easier and faster than the microwave -- and shows how vegetarian fare can be vibrantly colorful and full of flavor! Bursting with rich soups, hearty stews and casseroles, zesty curries, and flavor-packed chilis, Great Vegetarion Cooking Under Pressure brings together over 150 recipes, most with cooking times of under ten minutes. Arrive in Provence with a two-minute soupe au pistou laced with garlic and fennel; serve up an elegant zucchini bisque with tomatoes and fresh basil in just five minutes; or prepare a polenta good enough for a palazzo in only ten minutes. There are also scores of perfect vegetable side dish recipes, with an instructive chart detailing how to prepare everything from artichokes to zucchini. Lorna Sass devotes special attention to grains -- a vital part of the healthy diet -- and shows how brown rice, millet, couscous, quinoa, and bulgur can turn from gourmet store items into staples of your pantry. Whether it's Risotto with Broccoli Rabe and White Beans in five minutes, or Mediterranean Vegetable Couscous in just six, these recipes lock in delicious nutrition without tying up precious time. There's even a section about the splendid desserts that are possible with the pressure cooker, like Banana Pudding Cake and Pumpkin Bread Pudding. Filled with informative sections about the equipment, ingredients, and language of pressure cooking, suggestions for theme menus, and mail-order resources, this compendium of high-quality, high-fiber, low-fat (and mostly cholesterol-free) dishes will become an essential guide for today's bustling cook.

Under Pressure Book Review:

A revolution in cooking Sous vide is the culinary innovation that has everyone in the food world talking. In this revolutionary new cookbook, Thomas Keller, America's most respected chef, explains why this foolproof technique, which involves cooking at precise temperatures below simmering, yields results that other culinary methods cannot. For the first time, one can achieve short ribs that are meltingly tender even when cooked medium rare. Fish, which has a small window of doneness, is easier to finesse, and shellfish stays succulent no matter how long it's been on the stove. Fruit and vegetables benefit, too, retaining color and flavor while undergoing remarkable transformations in texture. The secret to sous vide is in discovering the precise amount of heat required to achieve the most sublime results. Through years of trial and error, Keller and his chefs de cuisine have blazed the trail to perfection—and they show the way in this collection of never-before-published recipes from his landmark restaurants—The French Laundry in Napa Valley and per se in New York. With an introduction by the eminent food-science writer Harold McGee, and artful photography by Deborah Jones, who photographed Keller's best-selling The French Laundry Cookbook, this book will be a must for every culinary professional and anyone who wants to up the ante and experience food at the highest level.
