About Us

We’re Sean and Jen, a married couple from San Diego, California. We are passionate about food and travel, and have been visiting countries around the world and learning about international cuisine full-time for over 5 years.

We share our travel stories and recipes on our sister site, Venturists. Head over there for some great ideas about places to visit and what to eat in all of our favorite places.

We began The Steamy Cooker after we discovered how fun and easy it is to cook with an Instant Pot. We love the versatility of the 6 in 1 cooker, but found it difficult to find many of our favorite international dishes. We challenged ourselves to create flavors we love from around the world using the Instant Pot, and can happily report we love the results.

We have also added a few of favorite recipes from growing up, such as carrot cake with cream cheese frosting made in the Instant Pot.

Creating these recipes has been a true labor of love for us. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we did!
