Sous Vide Whole Turkey

Anova Culinary

They said it can't be done. We did it! A perfectly cooked, ultra-crisp skinned sous vide whole turkey. Cook the turkey the day before the big show, and roast it to serve. No more guessing how long it takes or if it's done.


Cole Wagoner

Cole Wagoner developed a deep appreciation and high expectations for the quality of food during his years living in Portland, a city with some serious food game. When Cole met the girl of his dreams, he followed her across the country from his beloved home state of Oregon, to a small town in Alabama. The only thing missing seemed to be the glorious abundance of grub he’d previously enjoyed, which took a bit more of a drive to find in his new neck of the woods. So began Cole’s journey for the perfect kitchen tool companion to help him recreate food experiences from the comfort of his home, while snapping epic food photos along the way, and that journey has ultimately landed him in the Anova Kitchen
