Sous vide is an extremely effective method of cooking whereby food is vacuum-sealed in airtight pouches and submerged in a water bath at precisely controlled temperatures — often lower than those used in traditional ovens, but for a longer time. This technique is respected by gourmet chefs for its reliability and improved food quality. Sealing food in pouches keeps in the juices, nutrients, and aroma. In sous vide cooking, food is usually cooked at the same temperature it would be served at, the use of temperatures much lower than those used in conventional cooking results in much higher succulence. The exclusion of air in the cooking process also allows the cooked food to be stored, still sealed and refrigerated, for considerable times — food can be cooked months in advance and frozen then simply defrosted and seared to warm.
