Quick-Chilling Sous Vide Cooked Foods

The technique of quick-chilling foods cooked in a water bath, such as the SousVide Supreme, really helps to leverage the time of the busy restaurant chef or home cook. The cook-chill-reheat technique has been a secret of commercial kitchens and caterers for decades, allowing them to prepare batches of food for large crowds of diners ahead of time.

Sous Vide Turkey: Once you’ve gone sack, you’ll never go back!

There is nothing more the centerpiece of a traditional American holiday meal than roast turkey with all the trimmings. I recall in my childhood, my grandmother rising at 4 am to begin the preparations for our Thanksgiving or Christmas feast.

My husband and son played in an annual golf tournament the week before Thanksgiving, called (appropriately enough) the Turkey Shoot, for which participation each of them received a nice turkey. We were having a larger than usual crowd at our table for Thanksgiving dinner, so I decided to cook both of them. I would roast one turkey the traditional way and prepare its twin brother in my SousVide Supreme.

It would be a turkey throw down! Read More

Eggs Scrambled in the French Manner

All that changed with the arrival of the SousVide Supreme.  Now it’s something so easy and foolproof that anyone can do it…for one or two or ten.  … Read More
