Cook books are interesting things. For the most part they do not deliver the promise of the photos. Yet many people still buy them. Now their are a few exceptions. Just in case you have not been paying attention every cook should have a copy of "On Food and Cooking" and the "Flavor Bible". The first tells you how to cook something the second tells you what to cook together.

Now I just got a copy of Alinea as a x-mas bonus. This book is the type that could be used to kill someone just in case you need that in your cook books. I have not started cooking out of it as some of the items I need are still shipping in. However, the book did give me the urge to sous-vide some steaks.

Results turned out good. It was basically like cooking a steak so their was no outside just the center. Will try it again soon to see if I can do a modification to the "crust" at the end. If you like odd cooking techniques I highly recommend giving Sous-vide a shot.
