Fulton Market: How Times Have Changed

By | Blog | No Comments

Before Fulton Market became the restaurant and corporate office mecca it is today, it was home to meatpackers and food distributors. Though many of the historic buildings in the district were built between 1880 and 1929, its roots go all the way back to 1850, when a municipal market hall was constructed in the middle of Randolph Street as a food market.

Sous Vide for Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner

By | Blog | No Comments

Want a cooking experience that’s reliable and consistent? Sous Vide does that for you. In fact, it ensures perfect, even cooking – and is largely hands off. With sous vide, you don’t have to constantly worry about over (or under) cooking: the beauty is that the method brings your food to an exact temperature and holds it.

The sous vide method can be used for a variety of dishes, from breakfast all the way to a satisfying dessert. Here are a couple of foods you might not realize are sous-vide worthy.

Eggs

Like Starbucks egg bites? Those are cooked via sous vide. Eggs are a fantastic food to cook using the sous vide method. If you want a temperature-controlled, soft-boiled consistency, sous vide is the way to do it.

Poultry

If there’s one food that will convince you that cooking it with the sous vide method is king, it’s a chicken breast. Think about it: typically, when chicken is cooked, it’s done using high heat because you want to make sure that it’s cooked all the way through. The result is dry chicken that you wouldn’t want to serve to anyone, let alone eat yourself. Cooking sous vide allows for a lower temperature, retaining moisture and flavor while cooking evenly from edge to center.

Fruit

You’ve never had dessert until you’ve tried fruit that’s been cooked sous vide. Unlike traditional roasting or poaching methods, sous vide allows for thorough cooking while still retaining the fruit’s original shape. If you’re looking to get really creative, add in syrup or spices to your sous vide bag (not too much, though, or you run the risk of over-flavoring).

Use sous vide for any meal and you’re guaranteed a delightful experience.
