Almost everyone who owns an Instant Pot uses it constantly. And almost everyone loves Mediterranean food. So almost everyone will love Kelly Jaggers cookbook, The Everything Mediterranean Instant Pot® Cookbook: 300 Recipes for Healthy Mediterranean Meals―Made in Minutes. The Everything series covers dozens of different subjects, but the cookbooks in the series are especially good in that they include dozens of good recipes and are almost bibles in themselves. This one is no exception; the recipes cover a vast subject – Mediterranean food – which includes dozens of countries.

Some of the fish and seafood dishes are especially appealing: Pistachio-Crusted Halibut, Cod Stew with Olives, Rosemary Cod, and Citrus Fish Tacos, to name a few. There are also dozens of mouthwatering chicken and meat dishes – these are recipes that most of us actually want to eat. Vegetarians will find rice (including several risotto dishes), pasta, and vegetable dishes that are great – the Instant Pot does a great job with these. There is an excellent recipe for classic Chicken Cacciatore, as well as several Greek classics such as Avgolemono Soup and Greek Spaghetti and Meatballs. Besides classic Mediterranean dishes, there are less well-known, but delicious recipes for several varieties of hummus, and several egg dishes suitable for light lunches or breakfast. There is something for everyone here. The recipes are well-written and easy to follow, so everyone can cook from this book.

The one big drawback of The Everything series is that there are few photographs, making it impossible for most cooks to imagine what the finished dish will look like. Photographs are easy to do nowadays, and since the recipes are tested, the dishes are most likely at the test kitchen waiting to be photographed. Why they don’t do it, is unforgivable.

All told, Instant Pot cooks who like Mediterranean food will find it very helpful to add this excellent cookbook to their collection. It has enough recipes to keep cooking new things for months.
