I’m always sad that more Americans aren’t familiar with kale.  It’s such a tasty vegetable, and it’s loaded with vitamins and minerals.

In the YouTube clips below, I’m at the Slow Food Eat-In (Labor Day 2009) in a community garden on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, explaining to a very eager crowd just how easy it is to cook kale in the pressure cooker.

Kids stood up close and personal for the demo, and a good time was had by all.

In this first clip, I’m introduced by Kerry Trueman, co-found of Eating Liberally and activist food blogger for the Huffington Post.  She talks about fuel efficiency of the pressure cooker and how we should re-name it the “low-carbon” cooker.

Here you’ll see the pressure cooker in action.

Now, everyone gets a taste!



  1. Thank you so much for sharing your tips! I just got a pressure cooker and am a bit nervous but your videos where so informative. I will definitively get one of your books! PS. Also, you have great hair!

    • TX for ALL of your kind remarks! Happy cooking!

  2. I have one of the newer electric pressure cookers and don’t know how I ever lived without one. I was always too scared to use one until now. I also never knew what they were for or why they were used.

    • So glad you are enjoying your new cooker. TX so much for letting me know. Happy cooking! Lorna
