    Thanks, and no. I cook for people on occasion. But I have neither the desire, nor the work ethic, to do this professionally.

    Here's a picture of an egg I cracked this morning.

    Seems like that chicken had lots and lots of carotenoids to eat.

    OK, boo. I was kind enough to make you, and anyone else interested, a step by step photo documentation of this process.

    Here, I have a dover sole that has been filleted. The fillets are lying skin side up.
    [​IMG]
    Dust each fillet with a light sprinkle of salt, skin side only.
    [​IMG]
    Stack, skin side to skin side.
    [​IMG]
    Vacuum seal, or wrap tightly in saran wrap, getting as much air out as possible.
    [​IMG]
    Chill in ice water to set for about 4 hours.
    [​IMG]
    Then, you can go ahead and poach whatever fish it is your using while still sealed. Sprinkle a little fleur de sel on either side to finish.

    They are fed hydroponic greens.

    Unless they indeed eat tons of carrots and similar, I bet they get fed additional carotenoids.

    Well, clearly they are getting ample beta carotene, but I think that comes from the quality of the plants in their diet. They did not mention use of any supplements, and I don't think chickens eat carrots, but I'll check with them this week and get back to you.

    Chickens eat nearly everything, which includes carrots.
