The Instant Pot® Kosher Cookbook
Sunday, March 7, 2021 • 7:30PM
Welcome to the first Instant Pot® cookbook to feature kosher food. Jewish food and the Instant Pot® are a natural fit. So many traditional Jewish dishes are soups and stews, prepared before Friday night and kept warm throughout Shabbat, when observant Jews aren't allowed to cook. That's the sweet spot of the Instant Pot®. For decades, Jewish families have relied on slow cookers to achieve the soft, flavor-filled stews of their ancestors, but they lamented the time required. Now, the Instant Pot® allows for vastly shorter cooking times without compromising flavor or texture. The Instant Pot® Kosher Cookbook includes timeless Jewish favorites tailored to this modern appliance. There are weeknight meals as well as recipes for Shabbat, Rosh Hashanah, and Passover, along with kosher versions of international classics such as lasagna, sesame noodles, arroz con pollo, Asian noodle soups, and risotto, all expertly and deliciously adapted to the Instant Pot.
