Das ist jetzt mein drittes Kochbuch von dieser Autorin und ich bin wieder einmal begeistert. Leckere und einfache Rezepte die immer mit frischen Zutaten gekocht werden. Saucen, Suppen, Vorspeisen, Fleisch- und Geflügelgerichte, Vegetarisch, Kuchen, Nachtisch. Alles ist in diesem Buch zu finden. Die Rezepte, die ich bis jetzt nachgekocht habe, waren sehr lecker!
Apparently electric pressure cooker cookbooks make a lot of money for authors, so there are a lot of terrible ones on the market right now. You can tell when the reviews all sound alike or all have the same repeated grammar and spelling errors. Not sure how they get past Amazon posting poice, but they obviously do.
This cookbook is not one of those.
Laurence's cookbook is chocked full of really great basic recipes that work beautifully. Out of my library of about a dozen EPC cookbooks, this one is the best basic EPC cookbook I have found.
If you have a new EPC and only want to buy one cookbook, this is a great choice.
This 2012 book is not Instant Pot-specific, although the author does reference "electric pressure cookers." I question some of her timings. For the examples below, Ms. Laurence always calls for "High" and natural release. She calls for vegetable/mushroom stock to pressure cook for 12 minutes, whereas I have found that 20 minutes is not enough to coax mushrooms into giving up their moisture. I also think that her cooking times for most beans are about 5 minutes too short (except for black beans, for which 15 minutes is perfect). 5 minutes would work for instant polenta, but is way too short for regular polenta or medium cornmeal, which for me takes 30 minutes. On the other hand, she cooks mac & cheese for 6 minutes, which is at least 2 minutes too much: 4 minutes for me yields soft pasta, 3 minutes for al dente. I suspect that these timing differences may simply be due to differences in equipment.
Although the author provides excellent background information common to all pressure cookers, it won't help a novice figure out which buttons to push or answer some of the FAQ's that I see in IP facebook groups.
The recipes represent a wonderful selection of classic dishes modified for the pressure cooker. Think of a classic, and it's in here! Use Amazon's "Look Inside" to see the TOC that lists every recipe. Recipes are simple and headnotes are short but informative. Most dishes, but not all, have color photos.
I bought this book for use with my new electric pressure cooker. As a modern woman, I had never used a pressure cooker before and needed serious help with what to make in it when I was given one as a gift for my birthday. This book was the answer! Meredith Lawrence is a very talented chef and her recipes are spot-on. The directions are easy to follow and I really enjoy a cookbook that has corresponding pictures (in fact, I won't buy one without pictures). If you are looking for easy-to-follow and delicious recipes for an electric pressure cooker, this book is for you! I highly recommend it!
I love how Meredith Lawrence writes. Her recipes are straight forward and she makes some of the best looking food I've ever seen! Sadley have only seen it on tv and her website, and haven't had a chance to taste it. I really like this book, it was interesting to read as well as tremendous help for a newby to an electric pressure cooker. Everything is explained and the recipes I've tried turned out well, if not as pretty as Meredith's. I have a couple other of her books now, they are all great!
A great second book but not as good as the first. Where her first book gave more basic recipes this book has a few too many recipes that include various wines and personally I'm not fond of wine in my food, but rather in a glass! The book is broken down into categories of Quick, Quicker, Quickest as well charts that tell you cooking times for meats fresh, frozen and how much liquid is needed and the release method that works best. She has a lot of tips in the back that I found useful.
I have had my electric pressure cooker for four years and never used it until I got this book. All the recipes for pressure cookers were for the type that are for stove tops. This is exactly what I've been looking for. The beef stroganoff recipe was delicious. Can't wait to try more. I would recommend this book for anyone with an electric pressure cooker.
