Let a Yobot make creamy and delicious fresh yogurt.

Sebastopol, CA—Ever since über-chef Thomas Keller (The French Laundry, Per Se) introduced sous vide cooking techniques to his four-star eateries, water immersion control cooking is all the rage. Long the sole purview of professional kitchens, you can now buy a sous vide machine for the home—if you want to spend upwards of $500. With a little wit and just $75, MAKE Magazine Volume 25 shows you how to create your own sous vide cooker easily and inexpensively. (To watch it in action, go to makezine.com/25/sousvide, where you can see Cooking for Geeks author Jeff Potter using his own homemade sous vide machine to delicious effect.)

MAKE Vol. 25 takes on the kitchen through a variety of fun, easy, and inexpensive projects. MAKE and its sister publication, CRAFT, have pulled together the best DIY projects for the kitchen in just one place: blog.craftzine.com/archive/food. There, you'll learn how to create your own yogurt-making robot, the Yobot, with just a crockpot and an easily obtained Arduino microcontroller. And what's better than fresh honey on homemade yogurt? Using just a barrel, some lumber, a bungee cord, and screws, you can construct the "Honey Cow," a beehive that encourages the insect's natural comb-building behavior, making extraction easier for you.

MAKE Magazine is the freshest, widest-ranging DIY technology magazine in the world, focusing on everything from robots, rockets, and electronics to home, kitchen, and crafts. To get cracking cooking the new tech way, get MAKE Vol. 25, fresh on the newsstands; visit blog.craftzine.com/archive/food; and find the full DIY projects online at our library, Make: Projects:
