Mushrooms are one of the most versatile ingredients in a chef's cookbook. Sous vide is a great way to prepare mushrooms of types, whether served as an appetiser or worked into another dish. As always feel free to freestyle with some of your favourite herbs - like thyme and rosemary - during the sealing process or cooking. Garlic and chilli pepper flakes are also fantastic additions.
