Hello from Spain

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

My name is Chema and I am from Spain.

 

I have found this forum looking for information about Sous Vide cooking which is my main interest now in cooking (SV).
I like all kind of meals and try new dishes (not only SV). I know that SV is very good with meat, but I would also like to cook fish and vegetables in it. 

Hope to learn a lot from this forum.

 

Thanks

 

Chema

Welcome, Chema!  I'm sure you've found the sous vide topics, and hope you will dive into the discussions.  If you have any questions about where to find things in the forums or how to use the forums, don't hesitate to ask a host (I am one) or post a question in the Moderation and Policy Discussion forum.

 

Do you have favorite meats or cuts to cook sous vide at present?  I just acquired an Anova and have begun to learn about using it.  I am especially impressed (so far) with chicken breast and shrimp.

Thanks,

 

No favourite meats yet.
I have a SV Supreme, since last month, and until now, everything I SV'ed (Salmon, Sea Bass, Ribeye steak, Duck Breast, Lamb Shank, Pork Tenderloin, chicken breast, Carrots, eggs, etc) has been extremely good.

I'd rather eat fish, but meat are delicious when cooking with SV...

 

Thanks again

Welcome, Chema! I think my favorite use for the SV is to cook a steak, then chill it in the bag, and then finish it on the grill. I find chilling it first lets me get a good sear on the outside without overcooking the interior. Plus, it's convenient! I also love to do pork loin roasts and pork ribs.

 

Would love to hear from you about some of the Spanish dishes you cook. I love what I know of Spanish cuisine. In what general part of Spain do you live?

Not food related... But isn't Burgos a part of the famous Camino de Santiago path?

I know little about the cuisine of that region. What are some of your standbys?

Burgos is really famous for its Roast Lamb and also for the best "morcilla" (blood sausage) in the world
