About Pressure Cooker Convert
Who would have thought that on a “school night” you would be able to prepare a full, delicious (if I do say so myself) meal quickly, while using less energy?
I am Michael Rushlow, and I hope that with this blog, I can show others the joys of pressure cooking.
Michael Rushlow (The Pressure Cooker Convert) is a former punk rock musician, has worked in the advertising industry, and has been blogging for several years on the “joys” of commuting by bicycle in Los Angeles.
A home cook with no formal training, too many episodes of Chopped and the discovery of pressure cookers has led him to start his first food blog.
He found that pressure cooking can drastically reduce cooking times, and many dishes that were before only possible on the weekends can now be prepared on weekdays. Gone are the days of takeout just because it was easier. The pressure cooker not only makes cooking faster, but also uses less energy and creates less heat in the kitchen, which is an important consideration when one resides in Southern California (along with a landlord who swears that air conditioning is not necessary when you live only a couple miles from the ocean).
First being drawn to the pressure cooker by the thought of 20-minute beans, Michael soon realized that there is very little that cannot be prepared in the pressure cooker.
