Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Pressure Cooker is a must-see for kids hoping to pursue a career in the culinary arts, and a wonderfully inspiring documentary for anyone working hard to make their own dreams a reality. The film chronicles a group of inner-city high school students in Philadelphia who learn high-end cooking from their tough-but-caring teacher, Mrs. Stephenson and compete in a local high school culinary arts contest for scholarships. In the midst of the difficulties of growing up poor, and the universal concerns of teenagers, these students show through example what hard work and a positive attitude can achieve.
