Hi - I notice Wegman's vacuum seals a lot of their meat, especially cuts of beef...does anyone have any idea if those packages (really, the plastic they use) can be dropped directly into a sous vide bath?
Ever seen a reference to sous-vide cooking and wondered, "What the hell is that?" Scott Heimendinger, director of applied research for Modernist Cuisine, breaks it down for you, explaining what this cooking method is, its benefits, and the basic principles behind it in this episode of MDRN KTCHN. And Scott will be back with more tips on sous-vide cooking soon, including cool improvised sous-vide setups for those of you who don't want to drop the cash on the gear covered in this video. Want to learn more? Come back every Sunday for a new episode of MDRN KTCHN, and check out Modernist Cuisine's new cookbook, Modernist Cuisine at Home!
