"The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book" Review

Despite the fact that I have never used or owned a pressure cooker, I was inspired to request for review "The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book" by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough. This book contains 500 recipes that range from "Not much Effort" to "A lot of Effort", and each recipe also includes it's cook time, how it releases and how many people it feeds. There are multiple cooking categories including Breakfast, Soups, Meat, Poultry, Fish and Shellfish, Vegetables, Beans and Grains and Desserts. There is also a 12 page introduction on how to actually use each kind of pressure cooker, which I found to be extremely helpful!

Honestly, I was not aware that you could actually cook so many different things in a pressure cooker, so I was really excited to learn! I can't wait to try out these recipes. There's everything from "Asian Beef Soup with Rice Noodles" to "Shredded Barbecue Skirt Steak" to "Chocolate Pudding"!

I love that there are recipes for those of us who like to play it safe and for the seasoned chefs who are a bit more adventurous! There's a little something for everyone! I read a couple of reviews and saw that some people had issues with the fact that there are not many pictures in this book. There are 16 pages of pictures in the center of the book, but really I don't feel like this book is lacking anything because of that. I think the book is very nicely put together and it's pleasing to the eye. It's super easy to read and follow along. The book is rather large, so if you are using it while cooking, you're going to need something to hold it open. Other than that, I have no complaints! I can't wait to try out these new recipes and learn a new skill!

I rate this book as 5 stars! I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
