FEAR NOT YOUR INSTANT POT! Is this you? You've received or purchased an Instant Pot and it's never been out of the box. Maybe the instructions are a bit overwhelming. Or like others, you're just scared to use it for fear you'll do something wrong. If you answered yes to any of those questions, or you just want to learn something new, then it's Sandown Recreation to the rescue for you! Join us on Sat., March 7 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the Edward Garvey Recreation Facility at 25 Pheasant Run Drive for tips, tricks and helpful basic instructions on how to get started or how to start using yours more. You don't even need to own this appliance as you will not be bringing one with you. Our volunteer instructor will be demonstrating, and you'll be sampling, several dishes that you should feel comfortable to try making at home by the time you leave. This is an adult-only class. Youth ages 16 and older may attend if accompanied by an adult. The class is free and space is limited and pre-registration is required. No walk-ins the day of the program. Avoid disappointment and register now. This class will fill quickly.
