SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The Instant Pot – a programmable pressure cooker – is the latest kitchen trend! 

Whether you have one already but aren’t sure how to make the most of it, or you’re just curious if it lives up to the hype, this April 19th event at Scotch Plains Public Library is for you.

Food blogger Valerie Gray (From Val’s Kitchen) will show us how to make three different dishes with the Instant Pot.  We’ll be doing some prep, some watching, and some tasting!
