Recipe: Sous Vide Sesame Chicken

Sesame chicken is the counterpoint to salmon in our household. Tired of one? Then try the other. We suggest playing around with different types of vinegar for the marinade until you find something you like best. Personally, we're quite fond of both rice wine vinegar and Japanese mirin.

We recommend serving over a bed of soft white rice and garnishing with finely sliced scallions for a dash of colour.

Recipe: Sous Vide Octopus

When cooked well octopus is a buttery, delivious meal that absorbs flavour like nothing else. These days a lot of attention is paid to 'umami' - or richness. Octopus, and seafood in general, are the original umamiĀ  ambassadors. In sushi restaurants new hires often have to massauge the octopus before cooking in order to make it tastier down the line. Using sous vide allows for nailing this difficult balance 100% of the time, every time - and without hurting your wrists to boot.

Although not for the squeamish we would strongly suggest you give octopus a go, whether as an appetizer or main dish. There's a lot of flexibility to be had here, but for now we're pursuing a classic combination of spanish flavours like smoked paprika, rosemary and olives.

Tofu and chili-garlic sauce is a match made in heaven, one well established by pan-Asian cooking traditions. Sous vide leads to creamy yet firm tofu that's tough to beat. Moroccan Harissa is another winning combination, but one perhaps best saved for another recipe another time.
