  1. Hopefully someone can help here, I reached out the MC via email with no luck. I had gone into work a and brought my guide with me to read. i ended up leaving it in the car during the day. The next day when I went to open it, a bunch of the pages were "glued" together. It's as the the page coating had melted and sealed the pages together. Some came apart with some pulling but a few ripped. Any suggestion on how to separate the pages? I'd hate to tear more page especially considering I just got the set from my wife as an anniversary gift. Thanks for any input.
  2. Polyscience has published an iPhone application that computes sous vide cooking time as well as 6.5 reductions and other metrics. It is very nicely done, it includes a chart and countdown and coutup timer -- all in all a professional applcation. However, the cook times do not correspond with those in the MC 1-5. Also, all of the recommneded times are not highlighted. Any chance the MC kitchen can develop its own application? Work with Polyscience to offer an alternative? From the data collected, this should be relatively easy. Polyscience sells its applcation for $4.99 via iTunes. I do recommend it, but with temperature reservations. I have verified that the termperatures in the MC 1-5 correspond better for my tastes.
  3. I've been reading that using a wet bulb thermometer will give me better results for smoking. I usually smoke overnight and slow cook the pork inthe smoker for 18 hours total at low temperatures (190F), but I've read that a smoke then sous vide would be more effective as the meat would keep more moisture and I could use lower temps. This is where I'm at so far: I've brined 16 lbs of pork shoulder for 24 hours in a weak salt and paprika solution. I have a bradley smoker that I control using an Auber instruments PID.I've threaded my thermometer probe into a shoelace which is dipped in a water container so that the thermometer is reading as a wet bulb. I've set my PID to use this wet bulb temp to control the smoker's heating element. Set the smoke for 7 hours and the 'wet bulb' temp at 135F. I also have another thermometer to measure the IT. In the morning the IT of the pork after the smoke was 171F. I vaccum sealed it and into the water bath it is going at 150F for the next 2 days. Is this the correct method of using the wet bulb thermometer method? I'm concerned that the IT of the pork went up too high during the smoke. Does anyone have experience with this method?
  4. I went shopping in the asian grocery yesterday and I decided to try buying a fresh bamboo shoot. I went on youtube to find a video on preparing it, and the poster explained that they need to be par boiled until they are tender "to remove the cyanide." that sounds dangerous. The poster also explained that it's important to throw in rice bran into the water to help "extract the bitterness," which I guess is the cyanide? I was curious, though, would par cooking at 185F be superior to just boiling it? can a better texture be achieved without sacrificing the important cyanide removal? Any thoughts or suggestions?
  5. 3 stage breading process flour, egg wash, bread crumb Any modernist replacers for the elements in this process namely the egg wash?
  6. We have a whole table for cooking whole eggs. What sort of texture do you prefer?
  7. This a great looking dish, but it has an odd note stating that the verbena gel should not be consumed. If I use food grade lemon verbena essential oil (e.g., from the "Chef's Essences" product line), would the gel be edible? All the other ingredients of the gel (water, lemongrass, mint, agar, and sorbitol) are obviously edible, so I''m rather confused about the warning against eating it.
  8. my cousin has loaned me her sous vide machine and i'm falling over myself to use it, but not sure where to start. i have a million ideas in my head. what would be a good recipe to start for your first time using the sous vide technique? i wan't something that would be a main course entree - meat or fish. thanks for your suggestions!
  9. I cannot see for the life of me where the Crab Oil is used in this recipe. Is it suppose to be used to fry the crackers? Thanks
  10. so, i just made my first sous vide steak. I vacuum sealed it plain and cooked it for about 1hr 15 at 57C. afterwards I seasoned a bit with salt and pepper then seared with a blowtorch. I thought it came out very well, but I'm not sure if I went about the seasoning the best way I could have. Do you guys have any advice on the best way to season a steak you will be cooking sous vide? Do you season before the low temp bath or after?
  11. I have been flipping through the book looking for a discussion and understanding of the issue with low temp game cookery and the science behind the issues. I use a fair amount of both farmed and wild game meat (including some rather odd ones) and have been both disappointed and amazed with the results, but never sure how and why, and more importantly how to replicate them. I made a balontine of rabbit for a our menu recently and poached it sous vide. I cooked it to 60 degrees in a 64 degree bath and it was perfect. I cooked the same one the next week with fresher rabbits to 60 degrees in a 60 degree bath to pasturize and all the loin meat went mushy. I have also had this happen with lamb leg (not sure if it was just a bit to old or the acidic marinade did it but 24 hours later it was trash.
  12. This looks to be an inexpensive sous vide circulator: http://shop.vac-star.com/shop/USER_ARTIKEL_HANDLING_AUFRUF.php?darstellen=1&Kategorie_ID=108&Ziel_ID=1092&anzeigen_ab=0&sort=&order=&javascript_enabled=true&PEPPERSESS=012dd988efb2030eaa390a95cd627fde&w=1331&h=746#Ziel1092 Does anybody have any experience with this equipment?
  13. Hi Modernist Cuisine and followers, One of the recommended tools suggested by MC was the Jaccard 45-Knife Meat Tenderizer. They are not expensive but the jury seems to be out on whether they make a difference. Does anyone use one? How/when? (i.e. what kinds of meat etc.) Are their any Modernist Cuisine recipes that call for a tenderizer...I would love to make a specific dish twice, once with and once without using the tenderizer to decide for myself. Also, I already have a mallet-style tenderizer for carpaccio, so I am wondering if two tenderizers is overkill or if they are completely different in terms of application and results. Happy to try one out but thought I would run it by the group to see if anyone had experience with them. Thanks, Ian
  14. I'm ready to buy a pressure cooker and I'm looking at the Kuhn-Rikon Duromatics. I'm not sure which size to get, though. I'm mostly cooking for two, but I like having leftovers, and I'm concerned a 4-qt one won't be large enough for larger proteins or stock (which, in reality, I probably won't be making all that often). I'm leaning towards one of these three: http://www.amazon.com/Kuhn-Rikon-3043-Duromatic-6-3-Quart/dp/B00009A9XT/ref=sr_1_1?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1326995636&sr=1-1 http://www.amazon.com/Kuhn-Rikon-3916-Duromatic-Pressure/dp/B0000Y73UQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1326995628&sr=1-1 http://www.amazon.com/Kuhn-Rikon-3342-Stainless-Steel-Pressure/dp/B00004R8ZE/ref=sr_1_3?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1326995628&sr=1-3 Because they all look fairly similar, this is rapidly becoming the most difficult decision I've ever had to make. Does anyone have any advice?
  15. I wondered whether the lab can provide some information on the effects of smoking ribs at a higher temperature than recommended in the book. Specifically, I wondered what the effects are of smoking at 160F versus the recommended 149F. I am considering purchasing a Traeger smoker (I do not want to have to tend the fire of a Karubecueevery 30 minutes) but learned that the minimum operating temperature is 160F (with a variance up to 20F) .
  16. So I have been wanting to serve some savory pop rocks for a little while and was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with flavoring them. More specifically I am talking about these http://www.modernistpantry.com.....candy.html . It says on modernist pantry that they can be flavored with any fat based substance. The flavors I want to do would be Bacon, Chicken 'N' Waffles, Foie Gras, and White Truffle. My thought is to take some N-Zorbit and make a powder from these substances and simply toss the unflavored popping candy in my flavoring powder. Am I way off? Any different way to do this?
  17. Hi! Has anyone tried this immersion circulator from Addelice? http://www.addelice.com/shop/default/cuisson-sous-vide-basse-temperature/einhangethermostat.html I live in Sweden so the price of this circulator is far better than the Polyscience one.
  18. Does anyone know where to find peelzyme? It is mentioned in the book, and I'm quite interested in using it to peel fruit, but I can't seem to find it. Thanks, -Brian
  19. A friend of mine really likes sour patch candy and I'd like to try to make it into a foam but I don't quite know where to start. I'm thinking of trying a few things. Put the candy into a liquid an let it it, then blend it. Or perhaps melt the candy. Once it's liquid I have an idea about what to do next.
  20. The book mentions that there are no cvap ovens that let you directly control wet bulb and dry bulb temperature. The holding drawers have aseparatefood temp and air temp dial that is set in degreesfahrenheit. I would imagine that these correspond to wet bulb and dry bulb temp. My question is, which is which?
  21. I want to try and start taking some great food photos as I document what I cook (especially out of Modernist Cuisine). I was wondering if anyone have some good advice on what to buy and how to set up and light shots against a plain black and plain white background? I think that shots that Scott takes over at Seattlefoodgeek.com are excellent. Maybe someone can speculate on his set-up?
  22. I don't know where Mr. Marchesi comes from, but I don't think it's Milan. For me, a risotto Milanese has to be made with bone marrow, otherwise it's just a risotto and NOT Milanese. And as I can't see any bone marrow in his recipe, it is not a Milanese. Sorry. Unless somebody proves me wrong. Robby
  23. I'm planning on purchasing a Sous Vide Professional in the next month. Before Christmas Williams-Sonoma had a great sale price, around $600, but now everyone seems to be charging the same as Polyscience does on their site, $800. Has anyone found a better current price out there?
  24. Where can i get this? It is for the Silken Tofu recipe... (Volume 4 page 113 I think) I have tried numerous places, but this is seriously hard to find. The big chemical companies who produce this dont sell to end users. Tarjei
