About the Book

"With 75 recipes for slow cooker, pressure cooker, and other Instant Pot settings, [this book believes] 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 [is] annotated with dietary information and notes on which setting is best for each dish"--]cProvided by publisher.

Book Synopsis

75 all-new recipes for Melissa Clark's signature flavor-forward dishes that can be made in any pressure cooker, multicooker, or Instant Pot(R).

"Recipes that are as reliable as they are appealing."--The Boston Globe

Dinner in an Instant gives home cooks recipes for elevated dinners that never sacrifice convenience. It focuses on what you should make in the pressure cooker (rather than what you can make) because it does it better--faster, more easily, and more flavorfully. These delicious weeknight-friendly and company-worthy recipes include:

- Leek & Artichoke Frittata
- Coconut Curry Chicken
- Duck Confit
- Osso Buco
- Saffron Risotto
- French Onion Soup
- Classic Vanilla Bean Cheesecake

Here, too, are instructions for making the same dish on both the pressure and slow cooker settings when possible, allowing home cooks flexibility, as well as indications for paleo, gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan recipes. Dinner in an Instant is a new classic and Melissa Clark's most practical book yet.

Review Quotes

There may already be plenty of Instant Pot cookbooks on the market, but none of them were crafted by a cook with Clark's blend of approachable adventurousness--and her flat-out skill in the kitchen."--Epicurious

[Clark] ensure(s) you don't have to sacrifice flavor for lack of effort."--Tasting Table

A just-right collection with stunning photographs that will leave you grateful for every minute shaved off the wait for dinner."--T. Susan Chang, NPR

A selection of delicious and reliable recipes for anyone who's completely addicted to their Instant Pot."--BuzzFeed

New York Times reporter Melissa Clark writes recipes that are as reliable as they are appealing. She turns her attention to the popular Instant Pot, which she fell for writing a column testing out the device. Shakshuka? Port-braised short ribs with star anise? Indian butter shrimp? They're all within easy reach. (Those who don't have an electric pressure cooker will want to check out Clark's Dinner: Changing the Game, filled with workable weeknight recipes -- harissa chicken with leeks, potatoes, and yogurt; Vietnamese-style skirt steak with herb and noodle salad -- that still manage to excite.)"--The Boston Globe

The recipes in Clark's book have a distinctly chef-y flair: think coconut yogurt, osso buco, and green Persian rice with tahdig. When culinary figures like Clark show enthusiasm for a counters the idea that such devices are for amateurs only."--Publishers Weekly

Melissa Clark's recently released Dinner was the talk of the cookbook world. Her newest book incorporates everything people loved about Dinner, but is geared toward using our favorite easy cooking appliances."--HuffPost

If you know anyone who is expecting a multicooker this year, this book is what you give them. The recipes are delicious, like a wild-mushroom risotto without the endless stirring! But what I, as a newbie to the pressure cooker game, loved most was Clark's instruction-- clearer than the guide that came with my machine."--Lauren Iannotti, editor in chief, Rachael Ray Every Day

A much-needed book."--PureWow
