I have all these mouth-wateringly inspirational recipe books lining up neatly on my shelf just taunting me.
It’s not like I don’t constantly dream of doing more home cooking, but after a long day at work, all I really want to do is to spend no more than 15 minutes in the kitchen and get-it-over-and-done-with, definitely not the haute cuisine that those glossy pages invigorate.
Recently though, I have been introduced to a cooking trick that can change my despair on never being able to live up to this domestic goddess dream.
Now I can place a piece of steak in a super device, head out to the gym, and then come back for a perfectly done dinner.
The secret? A cooking technique called sous-vide.
