A revolution in cooking Sous vide is the culinary innovation that has everyone in the food world talking. In this revolutionary new cookbook, Thomas Keller, America's most respected chef, explains why this foolproof technique, which involves cooking at precise temperatures below simmering, yields results that other culinary methods cannot. For the first time, one can achieve short ribs that are meltingly tender even when cooked medium rare. Fish, which has a small window of doneness, is easier to finesse, and shellfish stays succulent no matter how long it's been on the stove. Fruit and vegetables benefit, too, retaining color and flavor while undergoing remarkable transformations in texture. The secret to sous vide is in discovering the precise amount of heat required to achieve the most sublime results. Through years of trial and error, Keller and his chefs de cuisine have blazed the trail to perfection—and they show the way in this collection of never-before-published recipes from his landmark restaurants—The French Laundry in Napa Valley and per se in New York. With an introduction by the eminent food-science writer Harold McGee, and artful photography by Deborah Jones, who photographed Keller's best-selling The French Laundry Cookbook, this book will be a must for every culinary professional and anyone who wants to up the ante and experience food at the highest level.

Southeast Asian food is fresh, easy and full of unforgettable flavours: Chicken and Rice will show you just how simple it is to make at home. Shu Han Lee moved to London from Singapore as a student. Homesick and hungry, she started teaching herself to cook the food she'd grown up with - Singaporean and Malaysian dishes, with a strong Chinese influence from her Hokkien Chinese mother. These recipes, from her mother's sesame oil chicken to ox cheek and venison rendang, are ones you will want to make time and time again. There are perfect midweek suppers rustled up in less time than it takes to order a takeaway, and healthier and better tasting at that: fennel and minced pork stir fry, fried hor fun noodles with kale and beansprouts or tom yum soup with mussels. For weekends, there are more adventurous projects: learn how to make your own steamed buns, egg noodles, or BBQ sambal lemon sole - a whole fish barbequed on banana leaves. Although these are Southeast Asian recipes, Shu's seasonal approach to the very best of UK produce is reflected throughout this book: from Brussels sprouts with smashed garlic and oyster sauce to no-churn rhubarb and condensed milk ice cream. There are also recipes that Shu has picked up on her travels throughout Southeast Asia, such as Vietnamese caramel pork ribs, Thai baked glass noodles with prawns and black pepperand Burmese chickpea tofu with fish sauce, lime and honey dressing.

"Sous vide i dit eget køkken" er både en grundbog til begyndere, der vil i gang med sous vide, og en bog med inspiration og ny viden til erfarne brugere. Til begynderne er der trin-for-trin vejledninger og 10 sikre hits. Avancerede brugere kan vælge blandt de mere end 300 tid/temperatur-kombinationer, der alle er gennemprøvet og beskrevet med hensyn til resultatets udseende, smag og tekstur. Bagest i bogen er der afsnit om, hvordan man bruger sous vide både i hverdagen og til fest, og vejledning i, hvordan man selv kan tilpasse en opskrift, så resultatet bliver præcist, som man vil have det. Med sous vide kan man få det bedste frem i hverdagsmad som kyllingebryst, laks, burger, flæskesteg, skinke, torsk, asparges og rabarber. Men sous vide er også perfekt, når man skal lave festmad til mange. Maden er mør og saftig, smager bedre og beholder sin flotte farve, fordi den er tilberedt skånsomt ved lavere temperaturer end ellers. Sous vide gør hverdagen lettere, fordi maden kan forberedes i god tid (evt. dage i forvejen), og så laves færdig på bare 5-10 minutter. Og maden er sund, saftig og velsmagende, selvom den er hurtigt tilberedt. Sous vide er meget velegnet til de billigere udskæringer, der bliver møre og velsmagende. „Sous vide gør ikke automatisk nogen til mesterkok, men sammen med vejledningen i denne bog kan teknikken helt sikkert hæve grundniveauet markant for enhver madlavning. Desuden indeholder afsnittene om udskæringer, mørhed og om hvordan kødet påvirkes af opvarmning mange nyttige informationer, som selv rutinerede kokke kan have glæde af. Og de mange tid/ temperatur-angivelser med smagebeskrivelser findes simpelthen ikke nogen andre steder." Kenneth Toft-Hansen, Svinkløv Badehotel - Tidligere Årets kok-vinder og sølvvinder ved Bocuse d’Or Europe
