Cooking in the Jungle: Sous Vide

Back to feed

Sometimes the difference between a home-cooked meal and chef-prepared cuisine is as simple as having the latest tools of the trade. That’s why we are proud to introduce the Pro for Home Sous Vide Circulator by Jeoffery Zakarian now available in Gourmet Galeria. Once a professional secret, this “under vacuum” method takes a little bit longer, but the perfectly predictable results are worth the wait.

 

The process is simple and functions like a culinary “hot tub” to slow-cook your food. Start with a large pot or container. Fill with water, insert the Sous Vide Circulator, and set to the temperature of your choosing. Next, seal your seasoned entree in a plastic bag. Vacuum sealing is preferable, but a good quality resealable freezer bag will suffice. When the water reaches the set temperature, drop the bag or bags into the bath. And that’s it! You are now free to move on to other tasks while the Sous Vide Circulator cooks your food. This cooking style is great because it creates a foolproof method for tenderizing tougher cuts of meat or even wild game. Meats that tend to be dry, like turkey, remain deliciously moist. The only drawback is that sous vide does not brown your meat, but this is easily fixed. After cooking, finish with a brief sear in a hot skillet or, believe it or not, use a kitchen blowtorch, many of which are designed for this purpose. We sell mini kitchen blow torches for $24.99, and this is a great, multi-use tool to have on-hand for sous vide cooking.

 

Eggs, vegetables, and even desserts can be made better than ever using the sous vide method. For $129.99, the Pro for Home Sous Vide Circulator by Jeoffery Zakarian includes a user manual to get you started and to answer any questions. Online, you can also find a wealth of irresistibly savory ideas from your favorite culinary websites. And, of course, we are happy to help. We stock a full-service range of cookware and bakeware, and we are highly knowledgeable about our products. We can answer any questions, offer tips to get you started, and give you the scoop on insider secrets. So, stop in today to give sous vide a try and, before long, you will wonder how you ever cooked without it!
