Class On Electric Pressure Cookers At Decatur Memorial Hospital Nov. 16






Electric pressure cookers have found a place in kitchens across America. Time is a precious commodity, and these appliances offer a method of preparing healthy meals quickly and efficiently. Join University of Illinois Extension and Decatur Memorial Hospital for a free evening class. Whether you are new to pressure cooking or have been using a pressure cooker for years, this class will provide an opportunity to gather ideas and have fun preparing recipes.

     Preparing Food Under Pressure will be from 5 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 16 at Decatur Memorial Hospital. Participants will have the opportunity to prepare and sample recipes using a pressure cooker.

     “Electric pressure cookers are great appliances for fast, hands-off cooking,” says Nutrition and Wellness Educator Caitlin Mellendorf. “Many home cooks tell me that they’re worried it will explode, so in my classes, I show how to use the equipment safely to increase their confidence in using pressure cookers at home.”

     This is a free class, but advance registration is required. Visit by Nov. 10. For questions, please contact Caitlin Mellendorf at University of Illinois Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment.
