Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve loved to cook. It all started when my grandmother would tell me about her mother’s secret sauce. The care that my great-grandmother and my grandmother took when making their sauce absolutely amazed me! From growing the tomatoes in the perfect spot in the back yard, to growing your own herbs and spices, to the exact process of smashing and cooking the tomatoes.. I was hooked!
As I grew older I began to expand upon my cooking abilities. I became proficient at making my own pastas, grilling, baking, sauteing, etc. You name it and I can do it!
However, I realized that while I was a jack of all trades, I was a master of none.
I had almost suscepted myself a to life of cooking mediocrity…
…that was until I heard about sous vide cooking.
When my friend first told me about sous vide cooking, I was a bit confused.
How the heck could cooking meat in a vacuum sealed plastic bag surrounded by water possibly work? There’s no way this meat is going to come out as perfectly as everyone says…
Well, I sure was wrong.
The first time I cooked in a sous vide, I was amazed at how easy the process was. But that was nothing compared to my amazement when I first bit into the end result.
I was immediately taken back into my grandmother’s kitchen when she was teaching me to make her sauce. Something felt so incredibly right.
From that moment on, I knew that I was destined to become a master of sous vide cooking.
