Sous Vide Cooking

Sous Vide is a cooking method that maintains the integrity of foods by heating them for long periods of time at relatively low temperatures.

The Sous Vide method uses hermetic plastic bags that are submerged in hot water below the boiling point (above 60ºC).

This cooking method was used for the first time by Sir Benjamin Thompson in 1799 and rediscovered by Georges Pralus in 1970 who noticed that the Foie-gras cooked in this way maintained its original appearance.

The Sous Vide method is used in various restaurants and is beginning to be used by non-professional chefs.
