The dish is a host favorite because it’s easy to make beforehand and keep in the fridge! It lasts in the fridge for 12 hours fully assembled or 3 days if curry and endives are separate.

Nomiku is located right in the Mission in SF. We’ve been salivating and admiring all the photos of local cooks have been putting on Instagram so we decided to combine forces and host a food salon!
We met fun like-minded people and had the time of our lives. The creative energy was so intense, it made the food shared taste even more delicious. So now, we’re doing it every month! This is a chance for the SF food community to try sous vide recipes straight from our test kitchen and break bread with Nom lovers from all over the internets.
The most talked about dish that night was the luscious one ingredient dulce de leche. We stuffed apple flavored cookie dough with it. The result was a cookie that was slightly crispy on the edges but soft and gooey in the middle.

Last month, the Nomiku team had the chance to venture into the Prubechu kitchen in San Francisco. The super talented team brings the taste of Guam to SF’s Mission District and we’re honored that they’re now using Nomiku exclusively for all their sous vide needs!
What needs you ask? Well the Prubechu chefs use Nomiku to make sous vide eggs for a dish that they pair with bacon and asparagus. They gave us a little taste test with a perfect 63C egg but with a little twist—asparagus and conch!
And if this dish didn’t sound mouth-watering enough, the rest of their dishes are amazing as well—good thing we don’t need to fly all the way to Guam to get this incredible cuisine. People here in SF are taking note with an awesome write-up in the SF Chronicle, among others!
If you get a chance, check ‘em out and don’t forget to get a taste of Guam and Nom with their sous vide eggs!
