Sous Vide Or Not Sous Vide: Is That Even A Question?

As a South Floridian, subject to such hot and humid air that I have started growing gills on the side of my neck so I can breathe out of doors during the summer, I have been advocating for the canonization of Willis Carrier, the individual responsible for inventing modern-day air conditioning.  I don’t know if […]
