Lately, sous vide is a word that is going viral. Many newspapers wrote a series of articles because of it. Even Starbucks serves food cooked this way.
This is a word for a new cooking method. Sous vide is a French word that translates to "in a vacuum". Food will be kept in vacuum bags and boiled for a long time. The temperature must be kept the same throughout the cooking time and there is usually a much lower threshold than in conventional cooking. This cooking method helps the food to cook evenly, ensuring the moisture of the food. Food cooked this way does not burn, does not burn, does not change color. And there is only a small chance of overcooking.

The results can be amazing. The ribs are ripe, and soft as if they melt in the mouth. The fish is just cooked to, fully absorbed in the seasoning. The sight and smell of vegetables are enough to make your mouth water…
Although invented in the early 19th century, this cooking method has only really evolved since the appearance of vacuum bags. Initially, food was served in glass jars or sealed bags. This is not perfect because there is still air in the container.
Some points to note when cooking sous video
Cooking with the sous vide method requires an accurate and consistent temperature throughout the cooking process. Temperatures are typically 55 to 60°C for meat, 66 to 71°C for poultry, and higher for vegetables. Cooking time is 1 to 7 hours, some foods can be up to 72 hours.
With some foods, the exact temperature may not be required. A 15mm thick piece of fish takes only 17 minutes at temperatures between 44 and 61°C. With eggs, it's different, set the cooking temperature to 63°C, and you'll have a delicious poached egg
Introducing the vacuum bag
The sous vide method cannot be without a vacuum bag.
Vacuum bags are the perfect food preservation. They are flexible, tough, and completely separate water and air inside and outside. Most importantly, they are non-toxic, do not react with food, and allow for vacuuming. Vacuum-sealed food can be preserved for a long time. The bag can also withstand low temperatures without being brittle or broken.
