Step inside LE CORDON BLEU College of Culinary Arts and immerse yourself in the PRESSURE COOKER.2010 UNDERGROUND RAILROAD FILM SERIES season opener. Get ready for a very special evening with Chef Demonstrations featuring tasty food samples and a lively post screening discussion with Master Chefs and Chefs-in-Training.

About the film:
There's a force-of-nature behind the door to Room 325 at Frankfort High School in Philadelphia. Her name is Wilma Stephenson and she teaches Culinary Arts. Infamously blunt, Mrs. Stephenson runs a "boot camp" at Frankford, disciplining her students into capable chefs and responsible students. Behind her tough-talking exterior is a teacher, who cares passionately about getting the best out of her students.

highlights two semesters in the culinary arts class of Stephenson, an irreverent high school teacher in Northeast Philadelphia whose no-holds-barred teaching style helps her students earn scholarships to college. She offers her students her version of the American Dream: You choose a realistic goal. You work hard. You work the system. You get out of Northeast Philly.

I grew a deep hunger while watching 'Pressure Cooker', not just from the students' mouthwatering dishes, but from the fact that teacher/chef Wilma Stephenson could uniformly inspire such success. --Matthew Sorrento, Film Threat
