What is Sous Vide?
Often the sous vide cooking method has been reserved for the fancy restaurants. However, more and more people are beginning to use this cooking method at home. So, What is it? According to Bon Appe’tite, it is cooking is the process of sealing food in an airtight container—usually a vacuum sealed bag—and then cooking that food in temperature-controlled water.
It Truly is Delicious!
I am a dean at a local two-year community college and I started a culinary program a few years ago, When I hired the chef instructors, one of the pieces of equipment that they said they must have is a Sous Vide machine. I had no idea what that even was. Since my instructors had to test the machine and show the students how it worked, I have been very lucky to be the recipient of many types of foods made with the Sous Vide.
Often, when the students have a big event they need to cater, they will make the food ahead of time using the Sous Vide and sear off the meat just before serving. The end result is flavorful, tender, and juicy.
