No doubt you’ve heard of the instapot craze--- all sorts of versions of a hybrid pot that doubles as a slow cooker AND a pressure cooker, performing other functions as well, like browning, sauteeing, and more. We think the trend is a great one, and this will be our second class highlighting this fabulous way to cook! Our last class focused more on traditional family-friendly foods and it was wonderful. This time we’re going to dig a little deeper and show you how much more this baby can do!
Our version, the Fagor LCD lux multicooker, is loaded with features and has a great track record. If you’re looking for something to enhance your kitchen experience, this would fit the bill. It also makes a fabulous gift for a growing family or a wedding gift. You can make simple macaroni and cheese in it, as well as something a little more gourmet:
Shrimp Scampi – Buttery, garlicky goodness with the bright punch of lemon---oh, the aroma!
Mushroom Risotto with an arugula gremolata – fabulous creamy texture with fresh notes from the gremolata.
Beef Bourguignon – lovely, tender beef with all the usual suspects—onions, carrots, mushrooms and wine. A fabulous as the cooked-forever version but perfectly tender and delicious in half the time.
Citrus Salad – A most colorful display of seasonal citrus, pecans, and just enough butter lettuce to call it a salad. Fantastic.
Daringly Decadent Bread Pudding – delicious chocolate chip laden bread pudding taken to the next level with a little cinnamon-rum sauce for the adults in your household.
