Sous Vide Newsletter
Ok, it’s official, winter is on our doorstep. And while it may seem easier to curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and a good book, it is the perfect time to get amongst it in the veggie patch! There is a sense of hibernation for a lot of us but wherever you are in this nation it’s time to don the boots and get to it.
There are so many good winter crops to plant – think about some leeks, rocket, beetroot, celery, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, onions, kale, and spinach. Stick in some spuds too. They’re easy to grow and incredibly rewarding. Don’t forget about sweet potatoes, they are great fun to grow as well!
This month we have also put a lot of work into compiling the best recipes, industry news, tips and tricks, and product reviews which we hope will inspire you for continued success with sous vide cooking.

Vacuum sealing is so Easy with the Oliso Pro
Keep your food FRESHER for LONGER 🍅 🍆🍗
Easy to clean and simple to use, Oliso’s Smart Vacuum Sealer is powerful enough for commercial use, yet compact enough that it can easily fit in a drawer. Using reusable, dishwasher-safe BPA-free bags, this hands-free vacuum sealing system makes it easy to keep foods fresh longer in the fridge or freezer—and it also opens up a world of options for sous vide. Seal dry or wet foods using different detection modes, or use the accessory setting with bottle stoppers and jar sealers. A “stop vacuum” feature even protects fragile items, so you can vacuum-seal most anything without worry.
The best part is that operating the Oliso Pro is so simple with a no-touch start – just insert a bag and the sealer does the rest. What more could you possibly want?!
We have two of the Oliso Pro Vacuum sealers on offer:
- Oliso Pro VS95A Smart Vacuum Sealer Starter Kit – For the aspiring home cook.
- Oliso Pro VS97A Smart Vacuum Sealer with 12V Power and Carry Case – Perfect for the great outdoors or the chef on the move.

Sous Vide Dashi glazed melt in the mouth lamb shoulder😋
Sous vide is the only way to prepare delicious moist, falling apart lamb shoulder. High quality ingredients will make all the difference with this recipe, so look for an ethically raised local lamb shoulder from your butcher and top quality soy sauce such as Shibanuma.
This is not your usual long and slow sous vide cook. The aim here is to produce, for all intensive purposes, a traditional looking braised shoulder of lamb deep with flavour and umami yet soft and moist with a consistent grey tinge to the meat.
The advantage of sous vide cooking here is being able to cook the lamb well in advance and to prepare the sauce at leisure, carefully skimming all of the lamb fat and leaving a shimmering brown liquor that can be used as both a glaze and the sauce. Delicious!
Sous Vide Tip
Vacuum packaging reduces food waste and your energy bill ♻️
Vacuum packaging is one of the best tools for managing your kitchen inventory. You can portion exactly what you need and preserve it for when you need it. The great benefit of doing this is that it also drastically reduces food waste, which is often overlooked. And although it does require the use of plastic pouches, sous vide cooking is the most energy efficient of any method of modern cookery.
