Dale Prentice trained as a chef in Melbourne, Australia, having worked in many venues in his 17 years at the pass. In his last role as executive chef at Stones of the Yarra Valley, he shared his kitchen with many renowned chefs—including Greg Malouf, Philippe Mouchel, Frank Camorra, George Calombaris and Riccardo Momesso. It was at Stones of the Yarra Valley that he first implemented sous vide cooking as a way of expanding the existing kitchen. After only a short period, Dale became obsessed with sous vide and the benefits it brought to a commercial kitchen. Sous Vide Australia grew out of this passion and a need to share these amazing benefits with everyone he knew. Since 2009, Sous Vide Australia has grown rapidly
and Dale is often asked to give lectures and training in sous vide cooking and equipment all over Australia.

Best Cookbooks for Sous Vide/LTLT Cooking

 Posted by nickrey on Yesterday, 11:13 AM

Dale’s book is out.

The link for it is here. It is A$69.95. The book is hardcover, 223 pages and covers sous vide cooking from basics up to some quite advanced restaurant dishes.

After an introductory chapter on cooking with sous vide, he covers cooking of five different classes of food: eggs, poultry & game, meat, fish, and fruit & vegetables.

From my experience, the times and temperatures given are appropriate and well within accepted safety guidelines.

The basics are covered well and recipes are clear and concise. They are accompanied by pictures showing plating of the dishes.

Dale is a trained and very experienced chef who moved into selling sous vide equipment after adopting it in his own kitchen many years ago.

He has sourced recipes from 36 other chefs as well as presenting his own take on a number of dishes.

This is possibly the first book to bridge the gap between a simple presentation of sous vide cooking (eg. Douglas Baldwin and Jason Lodgson’s books) and the restaurant books that can verge into the complex. He does it well and the involvement of a range of chefs allows you to see their different approaches to using this cooking medium.

I enjoyed browsing through the book and will use a number of techniques from the book in my own cooking.
