The time charts and temperature settings for each type of food is very important in this type of cooking. Seems like Jason's crew worked their hearts out putting this together. Tom
Something for just about any sous vide cook -- beginner or long-time experimenter -- from the basics to a nice selection of recipes to detailed, easy-to-use time and temperature charts. Although I consider myself a pretty accomplished sous vider, I picked up a couple of new tricks. Suzette
