How to Sous Vide: Easy, Delicious Perfection Any Night of the Week: 100+ Simple, Irresistible Recipes

We rated this book:


Sous vide allows you to cook meats, vegetables, and even desserts to perfection. Start with the recipe for basic chicken breasts; the chicken turns out moist and juicy, ready to use in any number of recipes, several of which the author provides to get you started. I loved the suggestion to add Za’atar and lemon to the sous vide bag for additional flavor, and while I enjoy the recipe suggestions, recipes that add flavorings in the cooking bag are my favorite part of this book. I also love being able to replicate cooking eggs exactly as you like them, from poached to hard-boiled and more. Salmon made sous vide is a heavenly revelation. Once you start to sous vide, you’ll quickly branch out with different finishes and dishes to enhance what you cook. The recipes are tasty but the real value of the book is helping you overcome any hesitation about getting started. You learn what equipment you’ll need (fairly minimal), basic techniques, finishing tips, and troubleshooting help, all of which are invaluable. Using any new cooking method may seem intimidating at first, so it helps to have this expert book nearby to hold your hand as you begin.
