DINNER IN AN INSTANT

75 Modern Recipes for Your Pressure Cooker, Multicooker, and Instant Pot® 

With 75 recipes for slow cooker, pressure cooker, and other Instant Pot® settings, Dinner in an Instant proves that home cooks do not have to sacrifice flavor and quality for the convenience of countertop appliance cooking. With Melissa's signature arsenal of flavors (garlic, ginger, preserved lemons, gochujang, harissa, and more!) and chock-full of tips--each of the recipes will be annotated with dietary information and notes on which setting is best for each dish.

Recipes will also include instructions for cooking on multiple settings (Pressure Cook, Slow Cook, Sauté, Yogurt, etc.)--busy home cooks can decide whether they want to have their dinner cook throughout the day while they tend to other tasks, or in a quick twenty minutes before the family sits down to eat. As in her previous book, Dinner, all of Melissa's recipes are never before published, fresh, approachable, and practical for weeknight cooking, without ever sacrificing quality and taste.

DINNER: Changing the Game

Zealously comprehensive and practical, Dinner’s mission is to help anyone—whether a novice with just a single pan or the experienced home cook—figure out what to make any night of the week, without falling back on what you’ve eaten before. Each recipe in this book is meant to be dinner—one fantastic dish that is so satisfying and flavor-forward it can stand alone—maybe with a little salad or some bread on the side. 

This book is all about options; inventive, unfussy food with unexpected flavor: a sheetpan chicken laced with spicy harissa; burgers amped with chorizo; and curried lentils with poached eggs, to name a few. It’s also about adding easy flourishes that make dinner exceptional—stirring charred lemon into pasta, tossing a Caesar-like dressing on a grain bowl, adding fresh ricotta and demerara sugar to stovetop mac and cheese, and lavishing a dollop of chili paste just about anywhere.  
Covering an astonishing range of ideas about just what dinner can be, Dinner has the kind of unfussy cooking that will make anyone a better and more confident cook.
