A Vacuum Packed World Cup Opener, cont…

So, the World Cup has come and gone, leaving behind some very sad Brazilians and some very happy Germans. We were at least very happy to be a part of it all. We enjoyed many good games and good food as we cheered on our favorite teams.

As for the opening event here at our offices, we had a very nice time and in the end our menu consisted of:

  • Crudité (little veggies and fruit with dipping sauces to pick at) and Greek salad
  • Grilled hot dogs and hamburgers (shaped as Texas?)
  • Sous Vide BBQ ribs, which came out beautifully and delicious, and were the star of the event (I cooked these, 😉 )
  • Birthday Cake (it was a birthday party, too!)
  • Heineken beer (World Cup Edition)

Hello Friends,

Just dropping a quick note about the trade show going on this week in Dusseldorf, Germany – Interpack 2014. This is one of the largest and most recognized packaging trade shows in the world.

At the booth you can see the following chamber vacuum sealers:

Henkelman Sighting! Nathan Myhrvold’s Cooking Lab

When I recently received my January/February 2014 issue of, Food Arts magazine, which I get regularly and love as a great resource on the current professional culinary world, I quickly noticed a particular article, Once and Future Kitchens.

The article is an interview with renowned kitchen designer, Mark Stech-Novak, where the interviewer and Mr. Stech-Novak talk about the future of kitchens. They speak of conceptual food equipment ideas and tools, what the trends are currently, and where they are going. It is an interesting read, I recommend it.

What I wanted to share with you was the prominent picture shown on the first page of the article. It is an image of Nathan Myhrvold’s Cooking Lab. He is the principal author of, “Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking”, which is a ground-breaking and notable five volume set of cook books on modern cuisine.

If you visit the, Modernist Cuisine, website you will see he lists some recommended equipment on his, “Gear Guide,” it is a list of the different types of equipment used in modern cuisine. Under the “Must-Have Tools for the Modernist Kitchen” he lists one tool as being a chamber vacuum sealer. While he notes several brands including, Henkelman (Yeah!), no particular brand is recommended over any other. However, the picture of his Cooking Lab from the Food Arts article, and shown on his website, seems to show his personal preference.

Nathan Myhrvold's Cooking Lab - Henkelman Marlin Vacuum Packer

Nathan Myhrvold’s Cooking Lab – Henkelman Marlin Vacuum Packer

You guessed it! Front and center (well, to the right a bit) is the only really identifiable machine [brand] prominently displayed, a Henkelman Marlin Vacuum Packer. I cannot tell which particular unit it is, but my money is on it being a the more popular model, Marlin 52.

This is certainly a larger unit than most kitchens need. Most use a Henkelman tabletop vacuum packer, like our the most popular model, Boxer 35, or the Jumbo 30 (both units are currently on sale at reduced prices!). Regardless of the size of the machine, all Henkelman vacuum packers are made with the same robust quality and attention to design. You simply cannot go wrong with a Henkelman vacuum packer.

Remember, you can always find the best sous vide equipment from Henkelman and Fusionchef at, Vacuum-Packer.com.
