My mother has given my father a Sous Vide machine, vacuum machine and the whole range of bags for Christmas - now we need to find out how to use everything. My father is a fabulous cook, a former Dentist (i.e. incredible attention to detail) with a fab talent for cooking and a v good palate. Now that he is finally retired he does all the cooking whilst my mother watches (in anticipation). This book for his birthday in January sounds great and hence the review has been well received. Can't wait to try the bounty!
