Like using a multi-cooker, which is a pressure cooker and/or a slow cooker? Want something more than watery stew or soups? Emeril combines his love of ethnic flavors with good technique in this very useful cookbook. I have not found a truly useful slow- or multi-cooker cookbook and this looks like “the one.” Organization The book is divided into slow cooker and multi cooker sections, so if you don’t cook with pressure, at least half the book is useful. The recipe starts with a photograph of the finished dish, then ingredients followed by method Types of Recipes Mostly, this book is soups, stews, sides and pasta, with some desserts (cheesecake, s’mores pudding, tapioca, dulce de leche rice, drunken cherries.) Even though a lot of the desserts are puddings, which shine in slow and multicookers, there are some doughnuts, fried pies and fritters for the fryer. There are also recipes for basic stocks such as chicken and beef, an interesting use for the cookers. Nutrition, Fat and Calories Aside from some beans and sides and soups, pretty heavy stuff. Cheese. Butter. Beef. Pork. Not diet food. There are some lighter dishes, eggplant, etc but if you are a weight-watcher, I’d pass on this cookbook. Advice, Tips, Tricks There is a section on how to buy, featuring Emeril’s multicooker and electric fryer, but there are similar ones on the market without his brand; naturally he’s touting his own cookware line. There is a chapter for pressure alone. He also gives advice on electric fryers. I don’t own one and never will; it’s said if you buy one, you can gain quite a bit of weight and I believe it. Just don’t go there if you don’t eat fried foods, and I do not. However, if you do fry foods in an electric fryer, there are recipes and advice for that in this cookbook. Recipes: What looks tempting? Escarole with garlic looked good–could adapt that to kale. There is a barley risotto with veg. Turkey meatballs–we get fabulous ground turkey here, so I’m looking forward to a good meatball recipe as those are so good for entertaining. I want to make the Cuban black beans, vegetables a la Greque, Gumbo and layered enchiladas look good for a party. Summary: This book has the hearty type of food you expect from Emeril, with advice on four kinds of electric cookers. Lots of versatile recipes, but heavy on calories. Family and party oriented, dieters will want to be careful.
