I love, love, LOVE cooking with a pressure cooker. I know they scare most people, and that’s probably why I’m so attached to them. There’s a certain element of danger. When I use the pressure cooker, I pretend I’m Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka, driving the Womkamobile, with noise and chaos all aound, screaming, “She might BLOW!”
And, at the end, you have these wonderfully softened and seasoned green beans and new potatoes. So pretty and peaceful – you totally forget the rush of a few minutes before.
I just love cooking on the edge.
