Documentary About Frankford High’s Culinary Class Available on Netflix

Last night I stumbled upon Pressure Cooker on Netflix.  The documentary nominated for 2010 Exceptional Merit in Nonfiction Filmmaking Emmy is about Frankford High’s culinary arts teacher, Wilma Stephenson, as she prepares her students for a culinary showdown that provides college scholarships to the best of the best.  It was really neat to see Frankford showcased through the whole film.  As the students and their teacher often talk about their life, personal and history through car rides, you’re constantly treated to views of Frankford.  Although it kind of looks urbanly rough.  It’s available both to Netflix subscribers both as a mail order DVD and as a “Watch Instantly” video stream to your TV [Pressure Cooker at Netflix].
