Posted Nov 22 2009 10:00pm
The 20 th Anniversary Edition of the classic cookbook from the leading authority on speed-cooking, Cooking Under Pressure by Lorna Sass offers a mouthwatering array of extraordinary dishes that can be prepared in minutes—from classic ossobucco to chocolate cheesecake—using a pressure cooker. A James Beard Award–winning cookbook author and food writer who has written for the Washington Post, New York Times, Food & Wine, Woman’s Day and other publications, Lorna Sass shows you how to turn out meals in one-third the time of conventional methods without sacrificing moisture, flavor, aroma, or nutritional content. Newly updated and revised for contemporary tastes and more efficient machines, Cooking Under Pressure is the cookbook that inspired a whole generation of home cooks to dust off their pressure cookers.
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!
