Slow-cooked flavour in a fast-paced world - pressure cookers are one of the greenest cooking methods imaginable. They allow us to cook quickly, cheaply and efficiently. They seal in flavour, so cheaper ingredients can be used to great effect. Since the cooking time is far shorter you save time, and gas or electricity.
The pressure cooker presents a distinct advantage for certain foods and for ingredients that need long cooking, it is a real winner and perfect for today's cooks.
Marguerite Patten, doyenne of British cookery and top selling cookery writer, shares her wealth of knowledge and her tried and tested recipes for pressure cookers.
