• This festive season you can impress your guests without having to spend hours in the kitchen! Make this year’s holidays and family get-togethers so much easier (and delicious) thanks to these exquisite recipes – all made in the word’s number 1 multi-cooker – created by some of SA’s top food bloggers.

    A 3-course feast fit for royalty

    Start your celebration or feed a crowd with a 15 min start-to-finish risotto from Di at Bibby’s Kitchen. Add to the rich flavour with some charred leeks, asparagus or mushrooms.

    Then up your game with Sam from Drizzle and Dip who has created a confit duck with cherry sauce. Sam says, “My recipe for confit duck legs with cherry sauce is perfect for a summery Christmas. The Instant Pot turns the making of this delicious French classic into an easy affair.“

    Of course, a South African Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a great gammon on the table.  Sam shows us how to bring out the best in this cut with a rooibos and ginger beer infusion: “Using the pressure cook function on Instant Pot to prepare your gammon is a genius way to speed up preparation time and the cooking liquid is such an elixir I had to use it in the making of the glaze.”

    Your dessert choice is completed with Di’s milk tart cheesecake with caramel rum drizzle.  “According to the review committee this is the best thing I’ve made all year … it’s the simplest cheesecake recipe ever, made entirely in the Instant Pot”. You can prepare the cheesecake in advance to boot. It only takes 45 mins from start to finish and then allow the cake to set overnight.
