This review is from: Sous Vide - the Art of Precision Cooking (Paperback)
Although water baths have been around for quite a while in commercial kitchens, the domestic market is really only recently starting to embrace the idea of cooking 'under vacuum ',hence the paucity of relevant books available on the market for home cooks. Previous books although comprehensive are aimed at the American manrket and detail quantities and ingredients that appear alien to the UK cook. Sous Vide - the Art of cooking is therefore a welcome arrival and is probably the first of it's type over here.
The recipes are very well laid out in sections and beutifully photographed. The chef's tip is a nice addition and the temperatures given for each recipe are precise - in other books a range is given ' from - to etc. )I particularly liked the reheating temperature guide should you be cooking in advance. I have now tried a dozen of the dishes and I am blown away by the tenderness of the meat, vibrant colour of the vegetables and most of all by the PRECISION of cooking sous vide.
Read this book in conjunction with your water bath and it will change the way you view cooking, I promise. Forever.
