Instant Pot and Pressure Cooking 101: Fearless Pressure Cooking for Anyone

If you haven’t heard the Instant Pot, and electric multicooker (pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker) is one of the best-selling kitchen appliances of all time. If you have one or are thinking about buying one, come to this class to learn how to effectively use the Instant Pot or any other pressure cooker to make easy and tasty meals. Here on the coast, conserving energy makes sense and this class can help you do it easily. Best of all the food is delicious. This class will be based solely on the good-for-you plant foods such as beans, whole grains, vegetables and fruit. Jill will show you how to use the cooker to make more than one dish at a time, as well as how to easily make basics for dinner or other meals such as Mushroom Risotto (in less than 15 minutes with no stirring), “Refried” Beans, Cornbread, Easy Steamed Vegetables and more.

Students will receive a recipe packet and have samples of all the food that is cooked. You can bring your pressure cooker if you would like to know how to use your particular model.
