Print out our simple, easy-to-use sous vide guide and keep it somewhere handy in the kitchen. It includes key timings and temperatures for cooking meat, fish and vegetables and a range of helpful hints and tops tips.
How many hours does it take to cook duck legs? What temperature should be used for root vegetables? Sous vide will always have you thinking carefully about numbers. Precise cooking times and temperatures are central to this method and, while there is a lot of room for experimentation, there are also some basics that you need to get right in order to achieve the best results. For example, sous vide is a great way to cook steak exactly to your liking but only if you use the correct temperature – a few degrees is all that stands between rare and medium. Equally, with chicken, you need to make sure the meat is cooked to 62⁰C or it will not be safe to eat.
To help you keep track of all the key times and temperatures, we have put together a handy, printable guide. It also includes hints and tips about making most of your ingredients. Keep in the kitchen and you will never have anything to fear from precision cooking.
