One October Saturday at Culinary Arts School P.ro.German company Steba presents a master class.
WE PRESENT THE TECHNIQUE
The heroine of the event – STEBA pressure cooker.
STEBA multicooker control panel is graphically clear and easy to use.
The grill has two switches – time and temperature.
This is the surface of a grill.
Steba vacuum packer
Steba sous vide. Steba SV 1 Sous-vide cooks portioned, vacuum-packed dishes at low temperatures. French invented the technology. The secret of Su Vid is the very even heating of the whole product: it’s accurate to within 1 degree.

Paul talks about the menu of the day.
Everyone listens attentively to the maestro’s instructions.
The peculiarity of making it: using vacuum packer and Sous-vision technique. Prepared foods are placed in pouches, vacuumed, and toasted in Sous vide at temperatures below 100⁰ C.
The main revelation of the day: toasting doesn’t take as long as is commonly thought, but the result of the effort is fabulous dishes with extraordinary flavor nuances.
Tagliatelle with ragu with vegetables and chicken breast
Ingredients for 4 people :
Tagliatelle – 280 gr.
Chicken breast – 1 piece.
Carrots – ½ piece.
Onions – ½ head.
Celery stalk – ½ stalk.

Grated lemon peel – 5 gr.
Olive oil – 70 ml.
Cream 22% – 200 ml.
Parmesan grated – 80 gr.
Sea salt – to taste.
Black pepper – to taste.
The first step in cooking the sauce – mincing the vegetables. The vegetables and chicken breast are put through a meat grinder.
Pour oil into the bowl of a pressure cooker, add basil and lightly fry. The chopped vegetables and meat are then added and fried in the multi-purpose cooker with the lid open. Stirring is recommended.
Then cream and zest are added. Close the lid, choose “meat” mode and set the time for 25 minutes.
- Sauce for already cooked in a multicooker Steba. Now you can add spices to it to taste.
- The sauce is moved to the most convenient position to add it to the tagliatelle.
- Paul sacred: adds the sauce to the tagliatelle, which soaks it up and saturates its flavor and aromas.
- This is a very convenient way to divide the tagliatelle on the plate with a spoon.
- Ready tagliatelle with ragu – very delicate creamy taste.
This recipe has caught on in my house – I’ve already made it twice. Children are delighted!
DUCK BREAST WITH APPLE CREAM
Ingredients for 4 people
Duck breast on skin – 2 pieces,
Houlden apple – 2 pcs.
Rosemary – 1 sprig.
Honey floral – 20 gr.
Roose pepper – 2 gr.
Sea salt – to taste
Black pepper – to taste.
Pavel teaches how to cook the breast properly: cut off excess fat and make cuts in the skin without cutting through it.
Peel and cut apples into medium slices. Transfer to a vacuum bag, add oil, honey, rosemary and rosé pepper. Seal.
The last important touch is the gluing of the bag, without this nothing will work.
And this is how fruit looks after vacuum sealing.
The breasts are grilled until golden brown.
When the lid of the grill is closed iron breasts are fried immediately on both sides.
Then set aside to dry on paper.
Cook apples and duck sous vide at 85⁰ C for 30 minutes. The ready apples are whipped in a blender, the duck is cut into thin slices.
Ready dish. The breast is very tasty, and the sauce is beyond words. It is simply unique and magical. In fact, I’ve never tasted such deliciously tender applesauce, and I’m not sure I could replicate it at home with the same result.
