Top Military Chefs Cook Sous Vide in Preparation to Win Culinary Competition

In late January, Clifton Food Range had the Combined Services Culinary Arts Team (CSCAT) visit their development kitchen in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset in preparation for a competition in March at the catering exhibition, Hotelympia held at Excel London.

Clifton Food Range is known in the catering industry for their temperature controlled, British manufactured, high quality, stainless steel sous vide water baths.

The chefs’ trialled various fresh produce using the sous vide water baths including steak, pineapple, fennel and salmon.

Sous vide is an innovative method of slow cooking using a water bath. Foods are cooked for longer at precise temperatures which results in enhanced flavours, melt in the mouth textures and no shrinkage to the produce. (more…)

Stirred 28 Litre Water Bath

One of the products which we will be exhibiting at Hotelympia is our popular 28 litre stirred water bath which consists of an unheated stainless steel tank housed in a stainless steel case.

To one side is a bridge unit which has an immersion circulator fitted. This simultaneously heats and stirs the water creating a highly stable environment.

The controller can be rotated so that the bath can be used ‘side to side’ or end on to optimise ’left to right’ counter top space. It can also be rotated so it can be viewed from virtually any angle.

The Cliftonfoodfuge

The Cliftonfoodfuge centrifuge separates particulates from liquids extracting all the flavour; separating the components of food by density so that heavier components are at the base and liquid at the top.

When foods are spun down, flavours alter and colours change dramatically. For example, tomatoes are separated into three layers and create an intense clear transparent liquid.

The number of components produced can vary on the food type. For example peas separate into three items, the shells at the base, a thin layer of a puree type substance and then the clear pea liquid.
