UNDER PRESSURE : A Man's Guide to Pressure Cooking
Thought to have been invented in 1679 by Denis Papin, a physicist, the pressure cooker has gone through a steady evolution from mini submarine to the modern present day iconic cooking vessel. Hated by many, loved by others, the pressure cooker can reduce cooking times by up to 90% in some cases by cooking food at increased temperatures by raising the pressure. Although often seen as something Grandma struggled with, resulting in rapid evacuations from the kitchen or explosions of red hot stew hitting the ceiling; the pressure cooker offers a uniquely rapid, sustainable and extremely healthy way to cook. Every boy now aged over forty had or wanted a steam engine. Mesmerized by the hiss of the boiler, steam gushing from joints, it is a dream that lives on for many. So ladies, if you want to get your husband into the kitchen … get him a pressure cooker and stand back. From pulses to soups he will quickly become obsessed releasing not only steam but the inner cook and the love of food that is in everyone. Under Pressure is a quick starter guide for those who are new to pressure cooking and who may still have nightmares about Grandma in the kitchen.
