The Fresh and Healthy Instant Pot Cookbook: 75 Easy Recipes for Light Meals to Make in Your Electric Pressure Cooker
Instant Pot is a brand name of an electric digital pressure cooker. Megan Gilmore did an admirable job creating and altering recipes to work with this pressure cooker. If you already own a traditional stove-top pressure cooker, keep it. The recipes will work well with it. You just adjust to your non-digital version over the stove top. In fact, the digital versions are prone to problems, as all digital equipment are, but your stove-top model is problem-free forever. In The Fresh & Healthy Instant Pot Cookbook, Gilmore’s purpose is to provide optimum nutrition, flavor, and speed in her seventy-five recipes. Not all recipes save time; in fact, the very first one, cooking hard-boiled eggs, takes longer and is far more complicated than traditionally cooking in a pot on the stove top. Gilmore starts with pantry ingredients and substitutions, a good introduction. The recipes are easy to follow and well written but anything but instant. She gives prep time, cook time, time to pressurize, and release time; for many cooks, this is too much complication and too time consuming. Each recipe is illustrated, with a convenient layout accompanied by nutritional information. The recipes are simple, so even beginner cooks can follow them.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
