What a great Idea for a Budding Chef For Christmas,

A Sous Vide Bath

Not Sure about who is going to think  of this as a good Blog, I get asked  on  a regular basis  about Sous Vide  as a means of cooking  and preparing food, and i have to say that whilst i can get the information together for people, I am Not the expert.

However, I came across this  Sous vide  Bath  and I thought it was worth a  look at,

SVP12 Sous Vide Bath

Its the SVP 12 Bath and its now available  from Tempcon

The spec is as below

Sous Vide  baths are an excellent asset to any kitchen. There are many benefits of owning a sous vide:

Ideal for long term cooking, Stationary baths, Temperature stability of ±1°C to enable precision cooking, Energy efficient as the tanks are insulated, They’re robust and durable due to the stainless steel inner case and outer tank.

Features:

  • Tank Capacity – 12 Litre
  • Temp Range – ambient plus 5 to 95°C
  • Display – 3 Digit LED 0.5°C resolution
  • Working Volume – 325x300x140mm
  • Overall Dimensions – 380x325x275mm
  • Fixed over temperature cut-out

There is a Promotion on the WWW at present for  Free UK delivery

I need to add apparently that i do work for tempcon, however this is not a sponsored Blog

I seem to have a knack for finding cardboard Burgers

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to be exhibiting  at Plymouth University. lots of good conversations and a really positive day for business (  maybe we are over the worst of the recession )  as a result , at the end of the day we had booked to have a  meal out at what we thought was  Gary Rhodes Restaurant

University of Plymouth Arts Block

 

We were a large group of people ( 10+ ) , we had to pre book the food we wanted before we arrived. the Starter was OK, i had the buffalo salad . could have done with maybe a little more to it, and fresher tomatoes, but i guess it was ok , The My ” Classic Burger ” came out …. i think it had about 12 chips with it, the bun in my opinion wasn’t fresh, and as i hadn’t been asked how it was to be cooked, i didn’t enjoy getting a very well done , almost charred offering . But no one came to ask what we thought.

I will give credit for a lovely desert which was all i hoped it would be and more. So OK starter, Great Desert, But Not good main course. and other people commented similar about their other mains..
Brilliant location, and friendly front of house staff

I spoke to the land lady of the hotel we were staying in and as a local she told me that the place is in fact a franchise and  In my opinion they are trading badly on his Name…..Best to look for another restaurant if its important, or be VERY specific what you ask for
