Think David Bowie and Freddie Mercury singing “Pressure!” I have an inherent fear of pressure cookers. It probably harkens back to my mother having one, briefly, when we were kids. I was completely paralyzed with fear that it would explode, and take all of us, and possibly the house with it in a screaming blast of smoke. But, since then, I also have come to realize that they’re much safer these days.
How many of you rely on one for a good deal of your cooking? I love Mark Bittman, and he recently had a piece in the New York Times Dining and Wine section about pressure cooking. Take a look here:
Doesn’t that sound amazing, and so easy, fun even! I am thinking amongst my mother in law’s things there was a pressure cooker, and I am going to start looking for it.
If you’re a pressure cooker, what do you typically cook? Is it really true you can do a cheese cake in there?
Let me know, and I’ll try anything you say you’ve done!
