I wanted to address the low-rating reviews that recommended Lorna Sass's books over this one. I own two Lorna Sass books: while they are quality cookbooks and do include more recipes for vegetables and grains, there is information in Miss Vickie's cookbook that does not appear in Lorna Sass's. I do understand that people's needs and preferences are different, but there is much in this book to recommend to all pressure cooker users.
There may be other motives in some reviews in which Miss Vickie's book is not accurately represented. I used to visit a pressure cooking forum on Vegsource (a vegetarian website). One day, Miss Vickie posted in response to a question on that forum and was attacked by other members of the site because she has meat-based recipes on her own website. When I quietly reported this to the moderator, hoping to have the offending post removed, I was banned from the site. Lorna Sass is heavily promoted on this site because she has written a book for vegetarian pressure cooking (although, paradoxically, she authored several other books containing numerous meat recipes). This experience has colored my view of some of the negative postings.
I received my copy today from Amazon.com (good deal, by the way & I got free shipping too), and didn't waste any time trying it out. Our Irish dinner -- a day late, I know -- turned out perfect.
Actually, I bought this book thinking my daughter could benefit from it. Now I see that I'll have to get another one to give to her...I need this one for myself!
Now, sooner or later someone will surely complain "...I couldn't give it 5 stars because there aren't any pictures..." I'm surprised that these same people don't also expect "scratch, sniff & taste" pages. Don't we all know what food looks like? Even someone who has never cooked before knows what a potato, or a carrot, a potroast or a chicken is supposed to look like. Yes, visuals would enhance the appeal of the book, but honestly, the recipes and directions are so well presented that photos are really not necessary.
I'm looking forward to trying many, many of the interesting recipes.
Good job, Miss Vickie!!
Update: Now that I have had this book for a while, and have tried many of the recipes and techniques, I want to say that this book is truly worth the money. Many people focus their pressure cooking attentions primarily on main dishes and especially meats. Miss Vickie's main dish recipes are wonderful.Read more ›
