    One minute and thirty-one seconds in, and we've already gone WAY beyond "Basics" with a damn sous vide machine.
    My guy. My dude. I love your videos. Your recipes have changed my damn life. But a sous vide machine is NOT BASIC COOKING EQUIPMENT.

      As someone else said in the comments, if all you have to do is dump all the ingredients into a bag, seal out the air, and then just leave it in water until it’s ready to eat, I’d say that’s pretty basic.. It might be a little pricy, someone said maybe $70. But it looks like the easiest thing to do in his videos, honestly.

    Are they yams or sweet potatoes? They're not the same vegetable and they aren't interchangeable. (Sweet potatoes being... sweeter, for one)

    I tried to do the mashed potatoes, however that failed miserably. I don`t know what went wrong, I Sous Vided (Is that a word?) the potatoes like you, but the where still tought, so ended up cooking them. While sterring so they don`t burn lead to a huge gluten build up. The Mashed Potatoes where eatable, but far form good. Any ideas what went wrong?
    Anyway I also made the Cream of Mushroom soup and it was the best soup I ever had!

    I know I'm a bit late here, but I'm pretty sure potatoes don't have gluten, unless there's a similar protein that causes them to get tough when over mixed
