The participants can practice the recipes before or after the lesson in their own kitchens and ask questions during the session. This spirited on-line session will stimulate a love of pressure cooking. Registrants can look forward to instruction, coaching, recipes and lots of Q&A.

Over the past fifty years Virginia, who has created more than 15,000 pressure cooked meals, will share her know-how with the participants.  Cooking for her large family and entertaining vast numbers of friends and family has given her infinite opportunities to refine her pressure cooking skills.
