Do we need to register for the events? Where is the demo going to be in the Main Branch?

Hi there! Some of the live demos require registration. Click on the date you are interested in, and it will lead to the event's page, with details on registration.
The live demo at Main branch will happen close the the magazine area. No registration is required for that demo!

Why no session in Orleans?

Hi RobinWild,
Thank you for your question.
Due to room and presenter availability, we were not able hold a session in Orleans. The St-Laurent branch Instant Pot 101 demo may be of interest.
For more information on food related events taking place at the library please do check out our Food Literacy programs.:

Welcoming this initiative. Part of the true mission of the library which isn’t to warehouse books but to help people build knowledge.
Given the fact that Robert Wang lives in Kanata and the Instant Pot was invented here, it might be useful to put a local spin on this. Would be nice to have one such workshop facilitated by Wang himself, or a Q&A with him as a guest.
At the same time, it’s nice to have relatively diverse sessions, with people from different culinary traditions and approaches give OPL patrons an opportunity to gain insight into the electric pressure cooker.
Of course, some people might think that it’s unusual to focus on a single product, albeit by a local business. After all, there are some competitors to the Instant Pot. Might make sense to have chefs and experts using alternatives to the Instant Pot also demo their methods.

Thank you for the feedback, Enkerli. We did mention that the Instant Pot was invented in Ottawa in our communication about the live demos.
Great suggestion RE having Mr. Wang himself facilitate an Instant Pot demo in the future. We will keep it in mind!

Excellente initiative que j'ai remarqué le 28 avril seulement.
À répéter absolument...

Will there be any more instant pot 101 workshops this summer? I have 4 friends who are very interested in attending this type of event and I heard good things about this demo held at the library! Please let me know

Hello lletou,

Apologies for the delay in answering your question. We do not have any plans for more Instant Pot workshops at this time; however, stay tuned for new food literacy programs and events this fall!
