"Who doesn't use a Lorna Sass cookbook?"

Note I left out the "PC" part. I find her cookbooks work well together, and Lorna Sass' Complete Vegetarian Kitchen, formerly released as Recipes from an Ecological Kitchen makes extensive use of the pressure cooker, although it is not a pressure cooker book, explicitly.

In fact, it might be my first choice for a first book. It is a more general cookbook; think Fannie Farmer for the whole-foods, low-fat, environmentally conscious cook. It covers the famous risotto technique, and the double boiler method that Guy prefers, and wok cookery for things that don't need braising, and stocks, and soups, and choosing and storing produce, and what all those strange foods are, anyway, and menu planning, and grains, and, and, get the picture. I got mine paperback,, in a library binding, at a very reasonable cost. (don't remember exactly how much.)

That being said, I own five of her books, after borrowing Cooking Under Pressure and Great Vegetarian... from the library for months on end. They each have something to offer, even CUP, which is decidedly not vegetarian.

You might try to find them locally to borrow first, and see which you use most.
