COOKING & EATING


We wanted to orient you to a few simple things that will make your experience with the kitchen as best as. it can be.

THE OVEN

The gas oven and range can be challenging to start, you need to trun and push in the handle and you'll hear clicking. It is common for oven temperature knobs to not offer the accurate temperature. We include an oven thermometer in 

CAST IRON COOKWARE

Cast Iron Cookware

(the big sauté pan with 2 handles by Borough Furnace) needs to be hand washed and dried. If you can, add a drop of olive oil when it’s clean and rub it into the surface to help keep it nicely seasoned for yourself or the next guests. All other cookware can go in the dishwasher (although it’s best to hand wash the black coated cast iron Crane cookware if possible).

OTHER COOKING TOOLS

Most of these are self-explanatory, but we’ve included a quick list so you know what’s hiding in the drawers or on the counters…

  • KitchenAid Mixer
  • Joule Sous Vide
  • Waring Commercial Immersion Blender
  • Mandolin Offset tongs
  • Squeeze bottles
  • Stainless mise-en-place/storage containers
  • Sifters Dough scraper
  • Half baking sheets
  • Silpats - for non-stick baking
  • Drying racks
  • Cake pans
  • Mixing bowls with lids
  • Colander
  • Glass food storage containers with locking lids
  • Bulk pantry supplies and spices (in glass jars to the left of the oven)
  • Pour over coffee system by Kinto
  • Nespresso machine (for convenience)

JOULE SOUS VIDE

Joule

It’s super easy once you’ve done it once!

Sous Vide-ing food with the Joule is one of our favorite ways to cook, because it is extremely consistent and predictable, it tastes amazing, and it’s easier to socialize while cooking since it is less active. It’s also helped us better judge the quality of different meats, since the cooking variable is nearly eliminated.

HEAT THE WATER


You can use the large black pot to Sous vide, or the large clear commercial plastic bin (in the bottom left drawer next to the oven).
Place the Joule into the pot clipped onto the edge, and fill the pot so it covers the little hole in the side (this reduces the sound while cooking).
The container will get hot, so please make sure it is directly on the concrete counter or on a cork trivet (and not on a cutting board or somewhere else).
Plug in the Joule (make sure there is no water on the cord). It should automatically connect to the WiFi.

Download the Chefs Steps app and connect to our Joule called “TWO”. Through the app you can choose the type of meat or vegetable you want to cook and to what level of doneness. There are also lots of great recipes within the app.

The app guide you through setting the cooking temperature… when you make your selection the Joule will start to circulate the water and heat up (and the light on top will blink orange). The app will let you know when the water has reached the correct temperature for cooking (but there is no rush, it will hold it at that temperature unless you turn it off.) The light on the Joule will also turn green when the water is heated.

PREP & PLACE THE FOOD


We often will take meat, throw it into one of the clear plastic bags (from the same drawer as the Joule, next to the fridge), add in some olive oil, salt and any other seasonings or spices you may want.

Once the water has heated, carefully place the plastic bag with your food and spices inside into the water. Be careful not to let water into the bag, but also make sure all of the meat or veggie is under water.

Then go back into the app and it will ask you to start the timer. Based on your cooking settings, it will set the cooking time and will alert you when cooking is done (usually 45 mins – 1.5 hours for non-frozen meat).

WAIT


Then you can hang out, have some beverages, sit by the fire, play some games or prep some sides while your food cooks perfectly.
You will get an alert when your food is ready, but it can stay in the water for quite a while without overcooking (the app will tell you how long based on your cooking settings).
Once cooking is done, you can turn the Joule off by holding down the button on top until the light goes out.

FINISHING



We usually prefer to give our food a very quick sear after the Sous vide, but be careful to remember that it is already fully cooked, so you just want to sear it, not cook it any more.

We hope you enjoy the Sous vide as much as we do! If you run into and questions or issues just message us through Airbnb and we’ll try to respond right away
