Vacuum Cooking at Low Temperatures

Enzo Sisto 29 november 2021

In the Netherlands there is a line of low temperature vacuum-packed vegetable products.

Under the Smoke & BBQ brand, smoked beets, corn cobs, cauliflower and more are masterfully prepared with this technique.

A good piece of meat or fish on the BBQ should always be accompanied by vegetables.

But why choose for low-temperature vacuum-cooked vegetables?
