Prestige Products is the leading supplier of commercial catering equipment to catering and hospitality industries and exclusive Australian agents for SousVide Supreme and associated products.
Sous Vide refers to a French term meaning “Under Vacuum”. Although this technology has been around for over 40 years, it has only gained momentum in recent years with leading chefs like Feran Adria and Heston Blumenthal. With this wonderful cooking technique, food is first vacuum sealed in special plastic bags then cooked under vacuum in a water bath at lower temperature for longer.
To support our research into heart diseases, Prestige Products has generously decided to donate $5 from every Silver Ad placement in their second hand catering equipment section as well as $5 from every SousVide Supreme sold to The Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute.
So, why not try sous vide cooking and help support the institute at the same time.
