Benefits of Using a Pressure Cooker

Pressure cookers are a fantastic way of cooking meals that usually take hours, so it frees up more of your time to spend with your family or friends. Using a pressure cooker allows the meat to become tender much quicker and keeps all the flavours and nutrients in one pot.

Using a pressure cooker like the Pressure King Pro also means less washing up to do, which is always a bonus in my books. The easy-to-remove bowl is very simple to clean and can hold a large amount of food. Perfect for cooking large batches which you can freeze or vacuum seal for another day.

I love using local ingredients whenever possible in my food so that I can showcase the best of Irish. My passion is to share with you the best restaurants across Ireland from a Chefs perspective. For many years restaurants have been at the hands of the "food critic". Most of the time these critics will visit the same old restaurants and heap praise on them. Often forgetting about the smaller restaurants who are paving the way for Irish Cuisine. My Goal is to higlight all restaurants, especially the ones the so called food experts never visit and give you a complete list of the best Irish Restaurants to visit.
