The book starts with her history with pressure cookers and then moves into the history of pressure cookers, and finally asks the age old question: what's the difference between a pressure cooker and a slow cooker other then the speed anyhow. (for me, it's that I can realize I haven't gotten my act together for dinner until 4 or 5 rather then preplanning at 8am. Plus, I like the fresher flavors of the pressure cooker...but you're not reading this review for my opinons of pressure cooking)
So, I love how Jill then explains what pressure cooker to buy. We are a 3 person family who don't eat a lot of volume which is very different then the family of four next door with two very hungry teenage boys.
So far, I love her recipe for oatmeal, her guidelines for beans and rice. I personally think my brown rice tastes better in the pressure cooker, oh sorry, i'm going off on how wonderful they are again.
Her recipe for Polenta Stuffed Peppers were divine. I love making them and it's so simple. And her recipe for potato salad & vegetable stews...although I confess to adding meat into them rather than tofu...anyway, this book will inspire you as well as be a good resource if you're working on meatless monday. You won't be hungry.
1) The evangelical nature of the author's praise for pressure cookers and for whole food. We get it. We (obviously) own a pressure cooker and we (obviously) want to cook whole food. We bought your book!
2) The dismissal of electric pressure cookers and the scant information give re same. I own both a stove top and an electric pressure cooker. My electric pressure cooker is able to brown/sear prior to switching to pressure mode, something that the author is unsure/dismissive of.
3) I found the recipes I've tried so far bland. Admittedly the book only arrived three days ago and I've only cooked two recipes.
4) I found the overview of pressure cooking at the beginning of the book to be badly written, boring and overly long. I am familiar with pressure cooking and am not scared of the pressure cooker- something the author spends an inordinate amount of time/space harping on about in my opinion. Made me start to wonder if I should be worried. The author writes for an entry-level and I found her tone condescending and patronising. This is a personal opinion.
5) The black and white photographs I found dull and somewhat depressing/cheap/ channeling a 70s stereotype of "healthy" food.
I need to spend more time cooking from this book and cast my initial impressions into the background. I will amend my impressions if and when necessary by editing this review.
