I frequently check out the NEWEST CRAFTSY CLASSES and they always seem to be on the 'cutting edge' of what's current. Not only that, I feel like they have a window into my life because Craftsy never fails to mirror exactly what I'm currently focusing on! (Maybe that means I'M on the cutting edge too!!). Once again, I was delighted to discover the Make Even More from Your Pressure Cooker class. Bruce Weinstein & Mark Scarbrough share pasta, seafood, grain, breakfast, and dessert ideas in this fun and recipe-filled series of lessons aimed at getting plenty of use from your pressure cooker.
I hadn't realized that this is the second class from this pair of chefs so I must have missed the first offering, Make the Most of Your Pressure Cooker. Both classes are currently ON SALE! I really like that the guys demonstrate on both a stovetop cookers and electric models, including my Instant Pot. I love when instructors are using the tools or machines that I'm using - it makes it super easy to follow along.
I was anxious to try out several of the recipes right away and just had to start with the good ole' mac and cheese. Their version is made with 4 different cheeses and is out of this world delish. It's more like my traditional mac and cheese compared with the 'quick and easy' one I shared in THIS POST and you can even add a yummy cheese and breadcrumb topping and quickly broil it in the oven (it just requires transferring the pasta to an oven-safe dish).
I have already gone out and bought all the ingredients to make a steamed Christmas pudding. I have ALWAYS wanted to make one but was totally intimidated with the steaming part. In a pressure cooker, it will be a breeze...and FAST! The recipe from the class is so easy too, made with simple dried fruits and a quick batter. I will definitely let you know how it goes!
My recent posts have hopefully conveyed my love for the Instant Pot and I hope if you have one you are using it too! This class is a great addition to Craftsy. If you're new to pressure cooking, check out Make the Most of Your Pressure Cooker and if you're ready to move on, Make Even More from Your Pressure Cooker could be just what you're looking for.
