Alexandria, VA – I have a new tool in my kitchen arsenal. It’s a sous vide machine and I already love it! Sous vide is French for “under vacuum” which describes a cooking technique where food is vacuum-sealed, then slow cooked in hot water. The temperature remains constant throughout cooking allowing your food to cook at a precise temperature to your desired degree of doneness and no further. It enhances flavors and maintains the moisture, consistency, and nutrients that are often lost with other cooking techniques. My roasts now cook medium rare from edge to edge without that flat inside gray ring.
On Sunday, January 26 in honor of International Sous Vide Day, Sterling, Virginia-based Cuisine Solutions, the world’s masters of sous vide, is hosting a sous vide brunch experience at the Conrad Washington DC’s Estuary Restaurant. Taste the modern French roots of the sous vide technique while enjoying innovative cuisine and craft cocktails. Special guest Chef Kyle Connaughton of SingleThread in Sonoma Wine Country, which earned three Michelin stars in 2018, is among the group of featured talented culinary innovators being showcased. Local chefs include Bryan Voltaggio (Estuary), David Deshaies (Unconventional Diner), Nicholas Tang (DBGB Kitchen & Bar), and Todd Gray (Equinox).
The afternoon featuring artful drinks created by incorporating sous vide techniques to complement the tempting passed hors d’oeuvres. Brunch follows in Estuary where guests explore individual food stations spotlighting many of Cuisine Solutions’ signature sous vide proteins and sous vide creations prepared by Washington’s leading restaurants.
