When you cook, if you smell a great aroma, then a lot of the aroma has escaped into the air.
Few people know that aromas can be retained and actually intensified this way.
In fact, what we experience as the flavor is the mix of taste on your tongue and the aroma experienced by your nose, what we perceive as taste is 70-90% aroma.
I am yet to confirm whether this type of cooking is available in India. But, a friend of mine in Canada told me that chicken cooked in a sous-vide way is mind-blowingly incredible.
He also said, that he never saw eggs that were so perfectly cooked: soft, rich, and as tender as barely set curd.
Notes: A restaurant in Bray, a small town in London – The Fat Duck is extensively noted as one of the top five restaurants in the world, for serving 100% of their ingredients that are cooked via the sous vide method.
A shiny stainless steel box like a bread machine with a glowing control panel on the front for setting time and It has a well for water and a computer-controlled heating element that distributes power to several spots on the box’s bottom to create convection currents that circulate around the food, cooking it with a one-tenth of a degree of accuracy.
Even though it’s named Sous-Vide Supreme, the name is a bit of a mistake.
The “sous vide” component is missing; you must purchase a vacuum sealer and heat-safe bags separately.
Consider this: there is absolutely no risk of messing up your chicken as long as you can adjust a temperature knob appropriately.
Your chicken will be prepared exactly as a chicken at the top restaurants in the world is prepared.
It won’t overcook even if you forget and leave the chicken floating in its heated bath for a further hour. It’s truly a “set it and forget it” appliance.
It will transform home cooking in ways that the microwave could never have imagined.
So will this really revolutionize Indian home cooking? If we’re to believe we got to wait and watch.
