4th of July Weekend Recipes

Whether you’re bringing a single dish to a potluck or hosting a full-on feast for family and friends, your sous vide is a guaranteed ace up the sleeve over the upcoming 4th of July weekend.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite cookout recipes (both traditional and with modern twists) to get you off to a solid start.

Eating with the seasons: Sous vide recipes

Eating with the seasons is one of life’s simple pleasures. In-season food is more flavorful, typically contains more nutrients, and is fresher than most food consumed out of season. The only down side is that summer only comes once a year, so you’d better take advantage while you can! What better way to celebrate this wildly bountiful season than by using sous vide to bring out the best in all the fresh food options at your fingertips?

Following last week’s Q&A, we received many questions about how to buy local seafood, the best way to store it, and of course how to cook that seafood once it’s in your fridge or freezer. We’ll let Monique fill you in!
