I think it's a reasonably good mythic representation of the void that seems to dominate modern systems, a lack of thought, of meaning, of responsibility, of surprise. Sous vide cooking seems aptly named because it's subservient to that Nothing: it sacrifices tasty parts of the animal and non-renewable resources on the altar of predictability.

Someone tried to talk me into cooking a turkey in one of those plastic bags designed for the purpose last thanksgiving and I just couldn't do it. I know it'd be juicier (would have been divine if we'd had time to brine the thing) but I just will NOT cook food in plastic, sorry!
People will eat what they identify as food. That which they do not identify as food can make them ill.
