    Take a cue from chefs and take the guesswork out of preparing meals with this ingenious appliance. The latest trend in home cooking is sous-vide cooking, where food is typically sealed in plastic pouches and cooked in a temperature-controlled water bath. The result is perfectly cooked meat, fish, vegetables and eggs. Sous vide machines are one of the hottest selling and popular appliances today but despite their popularity, most home cooks are somewhat intimidated by them once they bring them home. Where do you start? What should you first try? This is where Jay Nutt, a professional chef and bestselling author, and Jennifer MacKenzie, also a bestseller author, come in. Taking a friendly and very easy-to-follow approach, they walk you through all the basics of this ingenious appliance, ensuring predictable and perfect results every time. All the information a home cook needs is here, from properly prepping the food, proper bag and glass use (typically for eggs), desired cooking times and temperatures, to tips and techniques for finishing your food to caramelized perfection. Sous vide machines are all about efficiency and effectiveness and with this in mind, Jay and Jennifer provide clear directions including charts, making the transition to sous vide a fun and stress-free process. The 125 recipes were especially developed with the sous vide in mind and they are simply delicious. There are recipes for every occasion and for every component of a meal - from incredible Broccoli and Cheddar Breakfast Strata, to Thai Green Curry Mussels in Coconut Milk appetizers, Porchetta Sandwich with Spicy Aioli and Shredded Lettuce on Ciabatta Roll for the perfect lunch or get together for the big game. The main courses and sides are perfect family fare and also do double duty for effortless entertaining - from Super-Slow Whisky, Garlic and Brown Sugar Brisket, to Garlic and Lemon Chicken Breasts to a sublime Dijon and Rosemary Leg of Lamb with Red Wine Sauce. Jay and Jennifer have also included vegetarian dishes and side dish ideas along with desserts that are tailor-made for the sous vide like Chocolate Almond Bread Pudding and Creme Caramel. These recipes prove that you'll be able to achieve results simply not possible through using traditional cooking methods. Yes, sous vide may require some preparation and planning but the results are worth it!

    Whether he's working with fire and a pan, your grandpa's slow cooker, or a cutting-edge sous vide setup, Hugh Acheson wants to make your cooking life easier, more fun, and more delicious. And while cooking sous vide--a method where food is sealed in plastic bags or glass jars, then cooked in a precise, temperature-controlled water bath--used to be for chefs in high-end restaurants, Hugh is here to help home cooks bring this rather friendly piece of technology into their kitchens.
    The beauty of sous vide is its ease and consistency--it can cook a steak medium-rare, or a piece of fish to tender, just-doneness every single time . . . and hold it there until you're ready to eat, whether dinner is in ten minutes or eight hours away. But to unlock the method's creative secrets, Hugh shows you how to get the best sear on that steak after it comes out of the bath, demonstrates which dishes play best with extra-long, extra-slow cooking, and opens up the whole world of vegetables to a technology most known for cooking meat and fish.

    Just as Hugh Acheson brought a chef's mind to the slow cooker in The Chef and the Slow Cooker, so he brings a home cook's perspective to sous vide, with 90 recipes that demystify the technology for readers and unlock all of its potential.

    Sous Vide for Everybody is an approachable cookbook that demystifies sous vide cooking and demonstrates how it can make your life easier, while also giving you the tools to try exciting new dishes.

    Originally from the French for "under vacuum" because it often involves sealing food in plastic, sous vide allows you to cook food gently in an automatic water bath to the perfect temperature. That may sound intimidating, but the technique has trickled down from experimental fine-dining restaurant kitchens to the home kitchen precisely because it's an easy, convenient, and hands-off way to cook. Sous vide not only makes traditional cooking easier and more foolproof, it often can help to make food taste better, taking away all the guesswork and giving you back some free time. In this cookbook, you will find recipes that teach you how to cook sous vide, starting with basics like the perfect steak or soft-cooked egg. You will also find recipes that expand your knowledge and creativity in the kitchen using sous vide, from a holiday-worthy chuck roast that tastes like a prime rib at a fraction of the cost to eggs Benedict to fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt cups
