Have you ever received a gift, for say Christmas or Mother’s Day, and been confused on exactly how to use said gift? That is one common happening with the Instant Pot, a cooking accessory that’s finding its way into many homes across the nation. Many who receive it find them to be a little scary, intimidating and filled to the brim with uncertainty. Never you fear! There is actually a place you can go where a professional chef will walk you through your Instant Pot process; from unboxing it and preparing a full family meal to exciting features to shut-down and cleaning of the Instant Pot once you are done using it for the day. Everything you wanted to know about how to utilize that new Instant Pot but were too afraid to ask will be laid out in a fun and easy course. Welcome to The Instant Pot Cooking School!

New to the region, Chef Anne Gorman opened her own catering company and brought her expertise to the Tri-Cities area. After graduating from Johnson and Wales Culinary Academy, Chef Gorman took her newfound learnings to different places, including her own bakery in Texas.
