Under Pressure: Cooking with the Instant Pot
9 am - Southern Season Cooking School
It’s not an overstatement to say that the Instant Pot has transformed home cooks’ lives. Its loyal fan base – they verge on obsessed – can’t say enough about the multi-purpose, programmable pressure cooker’s convenience, dependability and safety, or the ease with which it cooks rice, makes yogurt or whips up a comforting one-pot meal. For this reason, the Instant Pot has become the iPhone of pressure cookers in a very short amount of time. “I often refer to my Instant Pot as a time machine because it lets me speed up and slow down cooking to suit my time frame,” says author Sheri Castle, who has a new Instant Pot cookbook and is one of our class participants. In this class, fully grasp the breadth of your Instant Pot by learning to make an entire meal using it, from the appetizer course to the sweet ending of dessert. This appliance’s capabilities go well beyond grains, beans and stews. Talk about instant gratification. There’s power in this pot.
