Most Recent Modernist Recipes
Here are some of my most recent modernist recipes.
Info: These egg cup bites were first popularized by Starbucks but are really easy to make at home. You can use any ingredients you want to flavor them but my favorite is broccoli, cheddar cheese and bacon. For a lighter egg you can replace the cream with milk, or use 1/4 cup cream cheese for a denser egg.

Info: Lobster cooked sous vide is tender and succulent, and this recipe showcases it with a simple tomato and corn salad. I prefer my lobster cooked at 131°F (55°C), but 140°F (60°C) will give you a more traditional texture. For a much softer texture you can drop the temperature lower.
To remove the lobster from the shell, you can either cut the shell off with kitchen shears, or boil the lobster for 1 to 2 minutes and chill it in an ice bath.

Info: Pulled pork is usually made using the pork butt, sometimes called the pork shoulder or Boston Butt. Using sous vide to make pulled pork takes longer than with traditional methods but you don't have to manage a fire or look in on the meat. This recipe uses a chili pepper sauce to give the dish some kick and depth of flavor.

Info: Using sous vide to glaze turnips is a simple process that results in a great side dish, especially when combined with umami-rich miso. You can also briefly cook turnips and their juices in a pan after sous viding them to reduce the sauce for a richer dish. This recipe also works well for other root vegetables such as carrots, radishes, and parsnips.
Miso Glazed Sous Vide Turnips Recipe
Info: Boar behaves very similarly to pork but has a richer, sometimes nutty flavor. I sous vide it at 140°F (60°C) long enough to cook it through and pasteurize it. This recipe complements the flavor of the meat with a sweet and spicy cherry chutney.

Info: When sous viding BBQ brisket, just put it in a bag, seal it and forget it for 18 to 36 hours. When you're ready to eat the BBQ brisket will be fall apart tender and unbelievably flavorful.

Info: Making pureed soups is very easy to do with sous vide. Cooking the vegetables for between one and four hours allows them to break down fully, making it easy to simply add some liquid and puree them into a soup.
Sous Vide Curried Butternut Squash Soup Recipe
Info: Fruit compotes, jams, and marmalades are real easy to make with sous vide. Simply put some fruit, with any pits or inedible skin removed, into a bag with some sugar and acid then cook it up to an hour or two and you are good to go.

Info: I'm a huge fan of steak, but sometimes I don't want to kill myself with a really heavy meal. Serving the steak with a lot of vegetables is a great way to lighten it up and add a lot of flavor. This sous vide chuck steak recipe combines the steak with some asparagus, cherry tomatoes and shishito peppers.

Info: I love to serve sous vide short ribs in the Korean BBQ style with lettuce wraps, kimchi, and pickled vegetables. It's a light meal that fills you up but doesn't leave you feeling sluggish afterwards. Serving them family style so people can make their own wraps is a great way for everyone to get exactly what they want. Plus it is always a blast to eat with your hands!

Info: Infused vinegars are a great way to add subtle flavors to vinaigrettes and sauces.

I like to use this refreshing raspberry vinaigrette on spinach salad or as a sauce on white fish.

Info: Tequila has a bad reputation as a party drink but you can tame it if you replace the shots with this sophisticated cocktail.

It is usually made with tequila and a grapefruit soda, such as squirt, served over ice, and is both easy to make and delicious.

Info: While the most common and well-known use of a whipping siphon is to create foams you can also use it to infuse liquids and to carbonate liquids. In this modernist recipe, I carbonate the water in watermelon to make a fizzy salad. It's a unique way to present an easy summer dish.
