Product description

From Library Journal

Streamlined and made essentially "explosion-proof," the lowly pressure cooker has become almost glamorous. In his fourth appliance cookbook (see, most recently, The Ultimate Espresso Machine Cookbook, LJ 12/95), LaCalamita offers 100 or so easy recipes. The collection could more accurately be called The Pressure Cooker-Mediterranean Diet Cookbook, for Mediterranean foods are what LaCalamita makes in his cooker, from Garlic Soup to Venetian-Style Artichokes. Lorna Sass's Cooking Under Pressure (LJ 11/15/89) remains one of the best books on the subject, but larger collections will want LaCalamita's, too.

From Booklist

Problems often associated with using a pressure cooker--food on the ceiling and other culinary atrocities--are, quite simply, outdated. According to Lacalamita, this handy cooking tool deserves more than just a modicum of respect, considering that it conserves food values and the home chef's time. Tips, advice, and counsel are featured upfront, with notes on proper use, care, and accident avoidance. (As he points out, new designs of the pressure cooker include so many safety devices and are so easy to use that even the clumsiest of cooks should be relieved.) Most of the more than 90 recipes are Mediterranean or, at least, inspired by the cuisines of the region; there is a strong emphasis on dried beans, legumes, grains, and vegetables. But the real draw of this book is the incredible time savings. Barbara Jacobs
