The Pleasures of Pressure Cooking, this Saturday : The Good Soup

The Pleasures of Pressure Cooking, this Saturday

Cooking under pressure has become my latest fixation. I’m in love with my yellow cooker.

the noise of its vent closing down, the silence of perfect pressure, the whoosh as I run cold water over its lid, encouraging release.

I’ve been making risottos from carnaroli rice and whole barley, meat stocks ready in an hour, smoky baked beans with ham hocks, and heavenly braises with shanks and tails.

Come see what this love tastes like on Saturday, or stay tuned here, for many pressure cooker experiments to come. xx

    Ange, pressure cookers are the best! My mother-in-law who is South Indian uses them for all her curries and they make everything so easy! Definitely the way forward. Looking forward to your stories. Wish I could taste, smell and see them in person. Love Essie

    Wish I could join you. I make marmalade in a pressure cooker with grapefruit skins, having first eaten the grapefruits. I cut up the skins, add a lemon , cover with water, add a large pinch of bicarbonate of soda and cook on high for 10 minutes. Then add the same volume of sugar and cook as usual. Lovely bitter marmalade.

    My mom uses pressure cooker every day ..almost everyday. I somehow don’t like using it much because of only one silly reason. I hate to clean it!
    Your yellow pressure cooker looks so pretty :)
