    You can use Foo saver freezer bags from Costco. One of those Foodsaver machine are pretty decent for home use. The drawback is the seal strip eventually wears out and need to replace (it's pretty cheap) and it is more difficult deal with liquid or moist ingredients.

    If you go the chamber vacuum system route, it gets expensive (big and heavy.)

    Rack of lamb with rosemary and garlic is easy and always a crowd pleaser.

    The FoodSaver things are OK, but you can't do liquids with them. I'm saving up for a chamber vac...unfortunately a lightning strike is moving my goal farther away.

    RE Recipes...check out "Modernist Cuisine @ Home"....great place to get started with all kinds of modernist cooking.

    There are also some "sous vide only" books out there...but I haven't read any so I can't make a recommendation.

    If you are willing to waste a fair amount of the bag material there is a trick to do liquids in a foodsaver that works Ok if not perfectly. (Freezing of course works perfectly but may be overkill.)

    namely position the foodsaver so it is at the edge fo the counter, make the bag big enough so that you can hand it over the edge with a fair amount of room before the edge of the bag touches the sealing strip. Now run the foodsaver, the liquid will creep up but if you watch it and seal the bag manually when the liquid is getting too close to the sealing strip, this process usually works well enough...

    Oh, I just noticed the video showed them cutting their demonstration steak with a Shun.

    Guess I'll have to cancel my order! ;-)
