Crabtree Farms is offering an afternoon on the basics of using an Instant Pot on Saturday, March 10, from 3-4:30 p.m.
Amanda Nelson-Varnell, of Dish T’Pass Catering Company, will be host the of this class.
An Instant Pot is an electric, programmable, and highly versatile kitchen device that does the work of seven kitchen gadgets. It can be used as a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, a yogurt maker, and steamer.
These safe, energy efficient devices can slow cook a recipe when there is a busy day ahead or prepare a roast in about 40 minutes for a fast meal. The Instant Pot is safer than most traditional kitchen appliances because of its self-regulation. Its removable stainless steel interior, which can be placed in the dishwasher or quickly hand washed, makes it easy to clean.
“I am excited to take an Instant Pot class because of the huge number of possibilities and wide range of ways that the Instant Pot can be used. Plus, I am also looking forward to getting over my fear of using an Instant Pot,” said Avery Patten of Crabtree Farms.
This class is $35 for Crabtree Farms members and $40 for non-members. Together with Ms. Nelson-Varnell, participants will explore four different ways to use an Instant Pot sampling as they go along. Officials said, "By the end of the class, everyone will leave with satisfied bellies, recipes to take home, and many questions answered."
