About Chef Char
I have been cooking for the absolute love and fun of it for many years. I grew up in a farming community on Michigan’s west side where much of my food has always come from sources such as my dad’s enormous garden, the vast orchards of a few farmer friends, the depths of the waters of the Big Lake and even the humble woods of my back yard.

“sous vide” is a French culinary term meaning “under vacuum” and is a method of cooking in which food is placed in a plastic bag or glass jar and cooked under carefully controlled water or steam temperatures. The intent is to cook the food items evenly, ensuring that the inside is properly cooked while retaining moisture and without overcooking the outside. Four different recipes will be explained, demonstrated, sampled and enjoyed in the class. Sample various sous vide vegetables, chicken and steak.
