The Pressure Cooker Gourmet: 225 Recipes for Great-Tasting, Long-Simmered Flavors in Just Minutes

As Wise notes in a thorough introduction that covers general methods, the pressure cooker is a time-saver; she then offers a nice range of recipes, from a relatively simple Trout … la Vapeur with Toasted Almonds and Parsley Sauce to a more complex Salmon Terrine with Asparagus Tip and Spinach Root Garnish that is packed into a loaf pan and steamed.

    No photo for the recipes at all!
    I believe a good cookbook should have photo for each recipe it covers to prove the author successfully made them. Besides, the photos make the book attractive.

    Excellent Cookbook
    Although I haven’t had the chance to try more than a handful of recipes, the ones I have tried have been terrific. Instructions are clear and easy to read.

    You can’t please everyone…but I’m happy with this book
    I read some other reviews that complained about this, that or another thing regarding this book. The old saying “You can’t please everyone” is true, and this book is no…

    Ingredient problem
    Gourmet is the major description of this book. It is not for some who just wants to use a pressure to prepare every day meals.
    Disappointment!!
