A little word from Graham Howarth, Head Chef for the P.M….

If you are in two minds about whether to step into the world of sous vide, allow us to provide you with a bit of reassurance from the very top.  Graham Howarth, head chef for the Prime Minister has kindly provided us with a testimonial about why he uses SousVide for the finest dinner parties around, with guests including the Queen and Barack Obama. If it is good enough for them, then we here at SousVide Tools hope that it will do for you!

Chequers, or Chequers Court, is the country house retreat of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. The residence is located near Ellesborough, to the south of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, England, at the foot of the Chiltern Hills. It has been the private retreat of the Prime Minister since 1921.


“I have recently increased our range of sous vide equipment and as always, the service from the team at sous vide tools is second to none, with delivery always next day”. says Graham.

“There is still a certain amount of negativity regarding the use of sous vide equipment which I personally find blinkered.

If you can cook something perfectly, time and again, and on a large scale, and still be free to concentrate on other elements or the next course, as we have to do in our sector, then why would you not?”
