At the Slow Food Eat-In on Labor Day in a beautiful community garden on East 12th Street in NYC, I demonstrated how to pressure-cook freshly picked kale–plucked right out of the garden–in 3 minutes.
Here I am being introduced by food activist/Huffington Post blogger Kerry Trueman who, with her husband Matt Rosenberg, organized the event. We raffled off the pressure cooker and raised over $200 for the garden!
The Sweetie captured the drama on U-Tube in three segments. In the first, I speak about the pressure cooker and how to cut up the kale.

Then I show how the cooker comes up to pressure and talk more about the wonders of pressure cooking and all the different kinds of foods you can make in it in 1/3 or less the standard cooking time:
In the last segment, I show how to use the quick pressure release as adorable kids stand in front of me, watching the whole thing wide-eyed:
