I recently had the pleasure of teaching a session at NYU's ITP Camp entitled, "Hacking the Dinner Party," which was an introduction to Sous Vide and Activa. The idea of hacking the dinner prep process is very near and dear to me, as we've been accustomed to cooking complex dinners in the past 4 years, occasionally in excellent kitchens, but more frequently in modest to horrible home kitchens.
