sous vide school



a beginner's interactive guide to sous vide cooking


Is this you?

  • You've tried sous vide before, but didn't really understand what you were doing. You feel a little overwhelmed by the whole process. 
  • You purchased a sous vide machine awhile ago (or maybe received one as a gift) and don't use it nearly as often as you want to. 
  • You’ve pinned dozens of "easy" sous vide recipes online, but get confused just looking at the directions. 
  • You have no idea what accessories you should invest in and don't want to spend a bunch of money on stuff you don't need. You got a sous vide machine to make your life easier, not more complicated! 
  • You wish you could find one resource that would walk you through exactly how to cook sous vide, starting with the basics and walking you through everything step-by-step, with zero judgement.

  • Know the ins and outs of the different equipment you'll need (and what you don't!)

“...[Chelsea] explains the process of sous vide cooking in easy to understand language and the recipes I’ve tried have turned out beautifully. (Love the egg bites!) I was hesitant to attempt sous vide, but now love it for perfectly cooked meats...oh, and the cheesecake!”

"Sous Vide School is a game-changer for anyone new to the world of sous vide. Even as someone who feels comfortable in the kitchen, I wasn't sure where to start once I received an immersion circulator. Chelsea to the rescue! Her modules are so easy to follow and are packed with so much information I felt fully equipped to handle lab 1 and make steak, without fear that I would ruin our expensive Valentine's Day dinner. On top of all that? I feel totally supported any time I have even the most beginner question pop up. I highly recommend Sous Vide School to anyone looking to up their cooking game!"

I can't wait to teach you!



I signed up for Sous Vide School before I had any equipment because Chelsea makes it look like so much fun! I needed to know what I was getting myself into before investing in the right equipment, and Sous Vide School answered all of the questions I had. Not only does Chelsea explain the how of sous vide, but she also explains the why which makes me feel much more empowered to tackle a new recipe or technique.

Hey, I'm Chelsea!

I’m the blogger behind the food blog A Duck’s Oven and cookbook author of Everyday Sous Vide: it's all French to me.


I'm from Portland, Oregon and I’ve been food blogging since before it was cool (2010). In 2016, I received an immersion circulator as a birthday gift from my mom and well, the rest is history. Since then, my focus has been on creating easy recipes to help you get started in the kitchen and actually understand all the things you can do with sous vide cooking.


So if you’re a total beginner and have no idea to even start with sous vide - I’ve been there!


When you buy Sous Vide School, you’ll get all my best techniques, recipes, tutorials and step-by-step instructions for creating easy and delicious food with sous vide. You’ll also get access to regular course updates, new lessons and more!
