Sous vide makes good home cooking great and effortless.
Developed in France in the 1970s, sous vide, meaning under vacuum, is a culinary technique in which food is vacuum-sealed and cooked in a low-temperature water bath at a consistent temperature for an extended period of time. The result is perfectly cooked foods with enhanced flavour, texture and nutritional benefits. Perfect for busy families and health-conscious home cooks looking for an easy and delicious solution to the dinner time dilemma, sous vide cooking is one of the fastest growing culinary segments and quickly moving beyond “just gourmet.”
