Why sous vide?
From the perfect seared steak to crème brûlée with the ideal consistency, sous vide makes cooking easier while taking away all the guesswork and giving you back free time. Our approachable new cookbook, Sous Vide for Everybody, demystifies this simple technique for cooking everything from eggs and meat to vegetables and desserts.
Safe, hands-off technique (gives you back free time) Precise results give you food exactly the way you like it (no overcooking) Frees up your oven and stove (handy for the holidays)
The closed environment of sous vide cooking prevents moisture loss, and the steady lower temperature activates enzymes that slowly break down collagen (a process that stops at higher temperatures) to produce the most tender, juicy meat you’ll ever taste.
Eggs and Dairy
Eggs are tricky to cook. The white and yolk behave differently when subjected to heat because they have different proportions of proteins, fats, and water. Eggs are perhaps the poster child for sous vide cooking: You can play with time and temperature (use our great chart!) to get the exact texture desired.
Vegetables are prime candidates for sous vide cookery. As America’s Test Kitchen alum J. Kenji Lopez-Alt wrote on Serious Eats: ‘It’s one of the few cooking methods where the end result is a vegetable that tastes more like itself than when you started.’
Sous vide works particularly well with creamy, custardy desserts—from pudding to ice cream—and with firm fruit-based desserts. Mason jars make things even easier: Cook and serve in the same container.
