If you’re a busy person looking for healthy cooking solutions, I’ve got something marvelous to share: our new ebook, The Slow Cooker & The Instant Pot: Recipes, Tips & Tricks to Get More Time with Less Pressure.
Right up front, I’m going to tell you this is not my turf! I’m a stove-top cook. But — there is NO doubt that both slow cookers and instant pots are terrific technology gifts to the contemporary cook, especially those who are looking for time management, for the ability to cook healthy without standing in front of the stove like I do. The best person to write about these useful machines is my dear colleague Catherine McConkie. We’ve been culinary road warriors — or the Thelma and Louise of the culinary set for years. She has tested all the recipes in my books, marched into kitchens with me across the country and taught thousands of chef’s and interested cooks during her 15-year career as a culinary educator.
Catherine is a culinary sleuth, who patiently explored both the slow cooker and the instant pot — the next generation of pressure cookers — to uncover the magic of the pots and translate some of my recipes so that YOU will succeed in mastering these marvelous machines!
Tried and true tricks
Now that Catherine’s done all the work for us, we can all quickly adopt her simple techniques to save time and stress while cooking delicious, healthy foods. She takes the pressure out of the pressure cooker, and expands time by using the slow cooker.
I’ll let Catherine tell the story in this brief interview about her process of discovery, in learning and working with delicious cooking in these time saving pots.
I guarantee you that thanks to this detail-oriented guide to making friends with these two pieces of equipment you will NEVER have to read the instruction manuals, and you WILL turn out delicious healthy foods in record time, with ease. And you will NOT relegate the machines to a shelf in your garage to gather dust! Sound good?
