Concise and to the point

As a newbie, I've done a lot of online research on sous vide cooking but there were some gaps in my understanding that this book cleared up. Some of the recipes are simple, such as Honeyed Fruit Salad, French Baked Toast with Cream & Eggs, or French Hot Chocolate. Others are innovative, yet also emminently doable such as the Coq au Vin With Potatoes, or the Mocha Pots de Crème.

Educational

Sous vide is especially great for when you have to cook large batches of meats. I just did 10 steaks for my family this past weekend and it was a huge success. Been doing this for a while but this was the biggest batch to date. They turned out flawless! Comprehensive and well-researched recipes, with added general info that is useful. Decent guide to learning the basics.
