Paula’s Birthday Dinner

20150322_190257

20150322_190244 I took Paula to Pinnacles 5 star resort Airlie Beach for her birthday and despite the multitude of restaurants in this solely tourism driven town she chose to have me cook her a Lamb Rack in our apartment. It had to be good so I sous vide the racks and then finished them in pan and oven. I had to sous vide them by eye as I had no way to regulate the temperature of the water bath nor a thermometer to test it. They came out of the oven as perfect medium rare rare. Thrown down with a nice Asian style salad and the complimentary bottle of champagne the resort supplied and it was a perfect birthday dinner for two
