July Newsletter 2018

July 2018

Welcome to the July Newsletter from the team at Home Sous Vide.

This month we want to focus on something we create, compliment, infuse and balance in our everyday cooking …it’s Flavour!

We all know what it is like to sit down to a hearty meal that brings back the comfort of childhood memories and simpler times. But what is it that lifts this dish to being a truly satisfying and delicious meal? It all comes down to the balance of seasoning that compliments the natural flavours.

Whilst we still often enjoy some of the old staples, palates are constantly evolving and people on the hunt for exciting flavour experiences in the 21st century. We now look to experiment with taste, discover complimentary ingredients and infuse flavour to enhance our everyday eating and drinking experiences. Smoked butter, herb infused fruit, flavoured oils and even your favourite smoking cocktails are all examples of the way we are learning to stimulate our senses and re-invigorate our intrigue to find that perfect flavour combination.

So if you feel like you need a taste lift, break out of the box and try something new. There are no real mistakes to be made, only discoveries. And we have got some exciting new products, recipes and tips this month that are packed full of flavour just for you…

In this issue:

  • Smoking Gun® Pro – Add the wow factor at your next dinner party
  • Essential Recipe – How to make Smoked Butter
  • Feeling Fancy – Smokin’ Champagne Cocktails
  • Tip of the Month – Keep it clean!


Add the wow factor at your next dinner party

You do not have to limit delicious smoky flavours to meat and fish when you have The Smoking Gun® Pro. Now you can give your cocktails, butter, salads, oysters, chocolate or even ice cream exciting flavours and aromas that will add the wow factor at your next dinner party.

The Smoking Gun® Pro is a unique and safe way of adding clean, fresh cold smoke to food and liquids. It’s also excellent for finishing products that are cooked sous vide or other methods where food is not normally directly exposed to fire or smoke.

It’s simple to use too! All you have to do is load it with an aromatic wood chip, light it up, then infuse your covered food with smoke. We even have different wood chip flavours for you to try which are naturally air dried with no additives. Plus you can even use tea leaves, herbs or spices to add that something special to your dish.

The impressive Smoking Gun® Pro features include:

  • Stainless steel removable burn chamber
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Variable smoke flow speed
  • Efficient, low-noise motor
  • Easy assembly and disassembly for ease of cleaning.
  • Runs on 4 x AA batteries (included)
  • Beautifully crafted, the Smoking Gun® Pro is as elegant at home as it is robust in the workplace. Give it a try today!

Cocktails are super fashionable, elegant and chic, and we love the combination of different ingredients that go into just one drink. And this delicious aperitif has indeed a twist! By combining both theatre and flavour, you’ll be adding another another dimension to this celebratory champagne cocktail. And no, we’re not talking about a fruity, gaudy concoction with a paper umbrella either.

Remember to keep your smoking gun filter clean, or replace it regularly to ensure consistent smoke flow.
