If you want to make food like all those chefs in fancy gastro restaurants, then set up shop in your tiny studio kitchen and outsmart the commercial $2K sous vide for a scrappy, dangerous looking, deliciously-tender-and-perfect-steak-producing one you'll build yourself.
In this class, you'll learn how to seal your food in vacuum bags, create a temperature controlled water bath to cook the food in, and ultimately whip up an out-of-this-world meal of perfectly cooked edge-to-edge medium rare steak.
Class will be a combo of demonstration and hands-on participation, including learning how to solder (tools provided). At the end of the class, everyone will get to sample a variety of steaks cooked sous vide. FYI: you will not walk away with your own sous vide set-up, but you will get a shopping list and instructions for building your own (a feat which you'll be able to accomplish for approx. $100 - compared with the normal price of ten times that amount).

A lifetime tinkerer (and currently the lead engineer at a startup), Andrew combined his passions for building things and cooking to get involved with the world of sous vide cooking the DIY way. Ever since, he's been impressing his friends with perfectly cooked steaks, poultry, and fish. He also runs a supper club out of his apartment called Big Little Kitchen - for the inaugural evening, he made sous vide scallops topped with sous vide duck prosciutto all resting in saffron cream sauce.
