Transforming Lives with the SF-Marin Food Bank

This past December, Anova teamed up with the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank to provide healthy, nutritious food for families and individuals in our community. Hunger is a serious problem in San Francisco and Marin, where 1 in 5 people struggle to find their next meal. This in the city home to some of the world’s largest companies including Apple, Facebook, Google, Twitter, Uber, LinkedIn, Tesla, Netflix, eBay and so many others.

Valentine’s Day Stories

Good luck getting a Valentine’s Day dinner reservation at this point. But that nerds, is what we call a blessing disguise! You get to skip an overpriced meal for a lovely night in, and because you own an Anova Precision® Cooker you can whip up a top-notch dinner for a fraction of the cost of your local haunt.

We hit the Google and found out that according to the National Retail Foundation, the average cost of a couple’s night out on Valentine’s Day is $55.44 in the United States. Tack on some traditional Valentine’s Day staples like flowers, candy, cards, and jewelry and you’re looking at two crisp $100 bills flying out the window. What if you took a 1/4 of that, bought some killer ingredients, and treated your special sometime to something special in the comfort of your own home — pants optional?

That’s just what these #anovafoodnerds are doing, and we’re sharing some of their secrets to success and recipes below.

Sous Vide Recipes from Football Legends

If there’s one thing these guys have in common, it’s the fact they made an impact on the game of football that will last forever. If there’s another thing they have in common, it’s their ability to kick ass in the kitchen about as much as they did on the field. In anticipation of Super Bowl LIV we’ve lined up 3 legends (one who is playing in said Super Bowl!) who are massive #anovafoodnerds to share some of their favorite recipes.

Let’s meet the lineup! (more…)

3 Ways to Bring Turkey to the Table with Anova Sous Vide!

Looking for new and inspiring ways to cook turkey this festive season? Easy weeknight meals or meal-prepping recipes for January? Whatever type of recipe you’re after, you can use your Anova device to cook up the juiciest, most flavorful turkey dish you’ve ever had. And, it’s easy!

Turkey is a terrific protein for the sous vide method. It’s a lean protein that can be swapped into almost any recipe and pairs well with a variety of spices and flavors. And with sous vide cooking, those flavors are locked in over several hours.

Sous Vide Turkey Breast with Apple Cider Gravy

This Sous Vide Turkey Breast is a foolproof way to get juicy turkey! Well seasoned, with crispy, browned skin and served with apple cider gravy! Even though I’m sort of new to the sous vide game, a turkey breast has been high on my list of things to try for a few reasons!

Turkey breasts, bone in, boneless, or roasts are the perfect smaller option for a holiday meal when you aren’t feeding a ton of people. The problem with turkey breast, if done wrong, is that white meat can turn out to be drier than its dark meat counterparts. The Anova Sous Vide Pro makes cooking a juicy, moist turkey breast with crispy skin easier than ever before! You can even connect it to your smartphone to access recipes and monitor your dinner from outside your kitchen.

Roasting a turkey breast can lead to uneven temperatures throughout the breast. With sous vide, the turkey breast will be the same internal temperature all the way through, which means no overcooking and moist turkey breast every time! Simply season your turkey breast well, place in a large (I recommend 2 gallon or extra large) heavy duty freezer bag, seal, and let the Anova Sous Vide Pro work its magic. Your holiday guests will definitely be wowed this year!
