Face it, you're at work nearly all day and you just don't have the time to make a big meal for the family.

That's where a sous vide cooker comes in real handy, but first, what is sous vide cooking?

French for "under vacuum," sous vide is a cooking process in which food is encased in an airtight plastic pouch (typically vacuum sealed) and cooked for a long period of time at a (precise) low temperature.

To pull this off at work, you'll need a sous vide cooker, a big pot to latch it onto, some water, vacuum-sealable bags or freezer bags, water and electricity.

You'll also need some form of meat to put in the bag too. Chicken, steak, pork, you name it.

Sous vide cooking at work is quiet and disruptive and something you can pull off without making a scene.

So easy, we managed to cook a few chicken breasts using a sous vide cooker in the 97ZOK green room.
