    M, did you get those plates from the asset sale of a bankrupt 1970s airline?

    My pork jowl which is suspiciously like a pork belly.


    Is that sous vide?

    It is.

    I am so out of it. I need one of these machines.

    Since you-know-who no longer eats what I cook, I think her objections can be safely ignored.

    Should I get the one that looks like a toaster or the one that looks like chem lab equipment?

    I'll build you one for the $75 cost of materials. I'll even autograph it for free.

    To Manton with love

    I'd go with the Wilkinson model. Otherwise, the toaster is easier, but if you want to cook for a big dinner party, say 8 people, you need the lab equipment.

    Make Magazine made a guide for it. It's awesome. Most of the other guides I saw were basically adding a PID control to a slowcooker, and I didn't like that. This one is a full on sous-vide. Circulator, accurate temps, etc. I mean I think it'd be silly to have me make one for you, but if you follow this guide it's super easy. And I say that as the least mechanically-inclined person that I know.

    If this is for real, hell, I just might.

    I will second the thought that the SVS has capacity limits. I think you could get about six pouches, one leg each, for duck leg confit as an example. There's no doubt Matt's industrial hot tub fits more so really you'll have to decide the space vs. capacity thing for yourself. I will also say the SVS has a fitted top and that is very nice.

    Had a tasting menu last night. It had some nice courses, it had some meh courses. Our guest picked the wines and they were very good, a Gruhner-Veltliner and a 93 Barolo. Both wines were very good.

    Edit: Oh, wanted to mention what I thought was the best course. It was not their torchon but rather a taco of sweetbreads. Very good and would go out of my way to have a full portion.

    My lady grew up in her grandmother's restaurant. Our whole set came from it and holds sentimental value for her that no tasteful earthenware can replace. I wish we had nicer dinner plates, but :shrug:
