    haha. I actually read that ideas in food blog long ago and came to the same conclusion as other people on here, wasn't sure if they were serious or not. Also not sure if David Chang is serious....

    I agree. Cooking vegetables sous-vide is much more exciting to me than using it for proteins. Although, so far, it has work quite well with both.

    Just a follow up on this. I know the method is in the Under Pressure book, which I ordered off amazon a few nights ago, but could you give me a basic idea of how the sous-vide barigoule is prepared? Am I just reducing wine and mixing with olive oil and then adding that mixture to the bag? Time and temp?

    Pretty much. Try 85 C, an hour or so, depending on size/cut. Maybe do a few bags and do some trial and error to see where you like them.

    Amazon has the Waring Pro deep fryer for hella cheap right now (the cheapest it's ever been).

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0014JM1JE/ref=oh_o00_s01_i00_details

    I know unitasker, I can fry with a dutch oven, fried foods aren't good for you. For someone like me who doesn't want to deal with much cleanup, trying to get the temps steady, and do small garnishes or items here and there, $60 is totally worth it.

    Definitely, and Waring is certainly a high quality product.

    ok what does horse meat taste like? I can get it easily where I'm at and I'm... well... I guess intrigued is the word.

    I'd imagine it would be tough if not cooked properly. Not sure about the flavor. I know they eat horse sashimi in Japan. if I were you, I'd get some and try it out.
