COOKING CLASS (ZOOM): Mastering the Instant Pot by Carole Nelson Brown

May 25, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

- $45

Register by SUN May 23

Pressure cooking, by its very nature, is a faster and healthier way to prepare foods. Nutrients are preserved at much higher rates than other, conventional cooking methods, flavours are intensified and, again, cooking time can be reduced by up to 70%. Throw in the fact that you are using less energy, wasting less water and how can you go wrong?

Unfortunately, many of us have scary memories of our grandmother’s stove-top pressure cookers, hissing, spitting and rattling away like a time bomb, threatening to blow up at any moment. Well, today we are lucky enough to have access to a new generation of electric pressure cookers that are safe, easy to use, and can save you hours in the kitchen.

Popular food blogger, photographer and stylist Carole Nelson Browne will show you how can use this amazing kitchen time-saver to prepare some of the most popular pressure cooker dishes. She will cover all the fundamentals of using an electric pressure cookers, answer question, and walk you through making a delicious Mushroom Risotto — that cooks in 6 minutes! — as well as demonstrate a number of different Instant Pot techniques used for recipes like Potato Leek Soup, White Bean Salad, and Gingerbread Pudding.

Carole will be featuring the Instant Pot, a Canadian pressure cooker that also functions as a rice cooker, a slow cooker, a yogurt maker, steamer and is amazing with all manner of pulses, grains and dried beans, but the recipes and techniques are all applicable to any other brand of electric pressure cooker/multi-cooker as well! You’ll have a chance to ask questions, discuss what kinds of recipes are best suited to pressure cooking, and share all kinds of handy kitchen tips and tricks.

Carole Nelson Brown‘s passions for food and her family —although not necessarily in that order — are legendary. From her love of blogging in The Yum Yum Factor, including showcasing delicious and unique ethnic and everyday recipes as well as reviewing local restaurants and other exciting edible happenings in Toronto and beyond, teaching cooking classes, completing a personal challenge of never repeating the same recipe twice for a full year (which proved easier said than done!) to developing recipes for brands, Carole has found her niche in the food world by drawing on her vast travel experience and food knowledge for inspiration as well as the daily ups and downs of her life for humour.
