Cooking Under Pressure

Our Idaho Extension team has developed a program that addresses an appliance that has taken the world by storm…the Electric Pressure Cooker. In the classes we have developed we discuss how to safely use electric pressure cooking units as well as how to incorporate them into our busy lives so our participants can cook healthy and nutritious meals at home in no time. This program has been a huge success in the state of Idaho. It is also currently being taught in Montana and Oregon.

In this webinar, we would like to share our knowledge with other Extension Educators and Professionals so they can take our already created program into their states and counties and make it a success. After the webinar, we will email all interested participants the materials that we have used in our counties to teach these classes.

Please join us! Come prepared to be inspired, share your thoughts and ask questions!
