Multicookers (such as the popular Instant Pot) can produce dishes you used to cook in the slow cooker in 7% of the time. Discover what makes—or breaks—dishes cooked in these devices. Bring your own multicooker with its instruction book; if you don’t have one yet, use one of mine. You'll cook butter chicken and rice, a Chinese red pork braise, or a shrimp-asparagus risotto to see if you want this pot in your own kitchen. Class fee includes food costs.
You can cook dried chickpeas in 20 minutes, navy beans in 20 minutes, cheesecake in 20 minutes, risotto in 7 minutes, and juicy pot roast in 60! Any season is a terrific time to become acquainted with the many advantages of the contemporary pressure cooker. Unlike the old models that gave rise to your mother's or grandmother's hair-raising tales of spaghetti dangling from the kitchen ceiling, new pressure cookers offer several safety devices. Discover the four infallible rules for safe pressure cooking, gain hands-on experience with your or Jan's pressure cookers, and you'll be set to roll out delicious, quick dishes. The versatile pressure cooker also delivers delicious, vitamin-packed soups and vegetables quickly and dependably. Learn what to look for when buying a pressure cooker and what to avoid (and there's lots to avoid). If you have a pressure cooker you haven't even taken out of the box yet, bring it to class to learn how to use it! Please bring your own nonalcoholic beverage and closed containers for taking home leftovers, as well as a dish cloth and dish towel to help with cleanup. No discounts.
