About the Author
Laura D.A. Pazzaglia is a pressure cooker expert and founder of hippressurecooking.com, a website of pressure cooker recipes, reviews, and tips. She works with pressure cooker manufacturers and travels worldwide to demonstrate and teach the benefits of pressure cooking. She is currently based in Rome, Italy.
More About the Author
Pazzaglia believes that if you can boil it, steam it or braise it.. you can pressure cook it - and she has. She'll make a Tabasco sauce in the pressure cooker in a minute or a one pot meal with roast, potatoes and carrots in 20. Every recipe on the hip pressure cooking website includes step-by-step photographs and instructions for BOTH stove top and electric pressure cookers.
"Hip Pressure Cooking: Fresh, Fast & Flavorful" (St. Martin/Griffin Press, Sept. 2, 2014) is Pazzaglia's first cookbook. In it, she explains how ingredients react under pressure with easy-to-follow recipes with a minimum of prep. The book is filled with tips, techniques and detailed information on pressure cookery that has never been shared before- a must-have reference.
She worked with Adams Media to publish a book project "The Everything Healthy Pressure Cooker" in 2012. In it, she "healthyfies" the publisher's recipes by removing all packets, cans, and pouches and re-configures them to use only whole, fresh ingredients - she also added some reader favorites from her website.
A former IT project director in Silicon Valley, she now lives in Rome with her husband and two children. She moved from computer to kitchen technology after her first child was born, and needed a way to make healthier meals in less time. She has lived in four countries (U.K, Italy, U.S.A, and Austria), speaks three languages (English, Italian and some German).
Pazzaglia has contributed her pressure cooker recipes and photographs to pressure cooker manufacturers for use in promotional material and recipe booklets, magazines, newspapers and websites. She has made presentations and demonstrations, in Germany, Italy, Luxemburg, Canada, United Kingdom and goes to the U.S. one month each year to do a pressure cooker demo tour.

Thanks to this book, I use my pressure cooker a few times per week. (I don't cook every day.) My favorites are the Split Pea Soup (I add the optional ham), the Lentil Soup and the Winter Vegetable Medley. All three are swoon-worthy.
Every recipe has nutritional values. I'm on Weight Watchers, so I can easily calculate the points. Many recipes have tips, also.
At the back of the book, there is a section on different types of pressure cookers, plus a chart of pressure cooking times for many food items - legumes, meats, vegetables, fruits, and so on.
I love the book so much that I gave it as a gift to someone at work who has a pressure cooker. I gave a pressure cooker and this book as a Christmas gift to my sister.
If you own a pressure cooker, you can't go wrong with this book.
