The Art of Sous Vide Cooking

            Sous Vide is a cooking method that came from a French term that means under pressure. In the process, food is sealed in an airtight bag made from plastic material. The food is then cooked in the water longer than the usual cooking time. This can be done in meats and vegetables through precisely regulated temperature, which is much lower than usually used for cooking. The temperature normally ranges from 120 deg to 160 deg depending of desired doneness. This method is intentionally done so that meats and vegetables are cooked evenly without overcooking the outside portion while keeping the food's inside portion properly done as well as keeping its juiciness. There are several ways how the Sous Vide method can be used in our property whether or not using a Sous Vide machine.
