It’s no secret that the chasm that separates professional chefs from hobby cooks has narrowed in recent years, thanks to chefs who happily disclose their recipes and techniques in cookbooks, as well as to the growing can-do attitude in home kitchens.
For one of our readers, that gap is about to get even slimmer.
SousVide Supreme, a valued James Beard House purveyor, is the maker of precise, all-in-one sous-vide water ovens. Used by Heston Blumenthal, Richard Blais, and guest chefs in the James Beard House kitchen, these state-of-the-art machines remove the guesswork from cooking, delivering mouthwatering steaks, vibrant vegetables, or moist seafood with every use.
This week we’re giving away a SousVide Supreme Demi, the company’s compact model that offers the same ease of use and consistent results of its larger machines. The Demi features a patented and impressively accurate temperature-control system, a digital LED display, and a nine-liter capacity. Similar in size to a slow cooker, the Demi is also a practical occupant of precious countertop real estate.
To help our winner start putting the Demi through its paces right away, we’re also giving away the SousVide Supreme Vacuum Sealer, one box each of quart pouches and gallon pouches, and three SousVide Supreme cookbooks.
For a chance to win the SousVide Supreme Demi (in your choice of red or black) and accessories, visit the SousVide Supreme Facebook page and “like” SousVide Supreme. At the end of this week, JBF and SousVide Supreme will pick a new SousVide Supreme fan as the winner of this giveaway.
