Milk Street Fast and Slow: Instant Pot Cooking at the Speed You Need

Voracious. Apr. 2020. 304p. ISBN 9780316423076. $30. COOKING
This latest entry from Kimball (The Milk Street Cookbook) emphasizes the distinct features of the Instant Pot: using it as a pressure cooker or a slow cooker. Many recipes featured here offer both fast and slow options, depending on one’s preference and schedule. As is typical for Milk Street, the resource spans a variety of cuisines, with meals such as Filipino pork shoulder adobo, black beans with bacon and tequila, and risotto with sausage and arugula. While there are some vegetarian dishes, most of the meals are designed with meat as the focus. Recipes are meticulously written, with complete details for either cooking method and full-page photos for most dishes. Handy tips and suggestions are included in headnotes, along with total cook times. A section at the beginning with pressure cooking tips and general Instant Pot techniques is useful, as is the index at the end.
VERDICT This could be a big hit with Instant Pot owners; for those on the fence, it might convince them to put one in their cart.
