What is sous vide?

Highly regarded by top chefs across the globe, sous vide is a French cooking technique that utilizes precise temperature control, delivering consistent, slow-cooked, succulent results every time. Sous vide literally means 'under vacuum' in French, referring to the vacuum-sealing process before being submerged in a water bath at very precise temperatures. To sous vide has become more and more popular in kitchens across the nation, albeit requires more work and equipment to achieve restaurant-standard for the home cook.

Our brand new range, Cooked by Farmison & Co masters the technique so you don't have to. Our Michelin-starred chef Jeff Baker has applied the favoured sous vide method to our favourite roasting joints, perfect for meat that falls off the bone, without long periods of time spent in the kitchen.

  1. Choose freshly cut meat
  2. Apply a flavour to the meat and seasoning, remember the flavours are locked in the pouch so you don't need as much as typically used.
  3. Place in a pouch, at this stage you can add a cooking medium such as schmaltz, dripping or a reduced sauce/gravy.
  4. Seal the pouch under vacuum then immerse into preheated water bath set to the cooking temperature.
  5. Cook for designated time then remove from bath and immerse into ice cold water to stop cooking or if using straight away drain excess juices and quick sear or roast to caramelize the exterior
  6. Store in chiller ready for use
  7. When ready for use carefully remove the meat from the pouch, the excess fat or gravy can be used to flavour accompanying dishes.
