Sous Vide Mexican Street Corn
One of Patrick's favorite recipes. The corn cooks in it's own juices, making sure it's chock-full of flavor. The corn is cooked precisely to temperature ensuring it's juicy and delicious.
Food, family, and firefighting pretty well sums up what Patrick loves. Recently he discovered sous vide, and it has taken his already stellar cooking game to the next level. Patrick uses Anova while at home, but also at the firehouse. Routinely serving up family-style meals worthy of high-praise, he keeps his fellow firefighters well fed and ready to go into action whenever necessary!
