  1. Hi,
    I would just like to say an enormous “thank you” for the very useful pasta and dried bean time charts. I have had my pressure cooker for years and now that I am retired I am able to start really using it. I am a big fan of beans and pulses and your charts have saved me having to try and put a similar table together, so you have saved me a lot of time. Also taking a look at your lovely recipes. thank you again.
