A doctor in New York, when asked what he liked about his sous vide, answered that “the food is tender, the flavors are infused and all you need to do is finish something off with a quick sear.” A recent college grad in Las Vegas said that sous vide is “a new tool to experiment with” and “it’s difficult to screw up.” This, to me, is the beauty of sous vide in a nutshell.
Hearing the words sous vide (pronounced soo veed) makes me think of a fancy restaurant menu and professionally trained French chefs like Thomas Keller
Sous vide is simply a way to cook food using water and a plastic bag. What makes it so special? The food is sealed in the plastic bag then cooked in water at a relatively low temperature (110-150°F) for a long period of time. The idea behind sous vide is to cook food evenly and retain as much moisture as possible. Some people also find that the flavors are more concentrated using this method of food preparation, giving sous vide a competitive edge in the market. Sounds really fancy, right?
