This involves applying a dry convection heat to your food in an enclosed environment.


This means cooking your food in fat and oil.


Roasting is basically a high heat form of baking, where your food gets drier and browner on the outside by initial exposure to a temperature of over 500F.


This is a fast, dry and very hot way of cooking, where the food is placed under an intense radiant heat.


This means cooking your food in water vapour over boiling water.


This involves a small amount of hot liquid, ideally at a temperature between 160 and 180F.


This involves cooking liquid on top of a stove in a pot or pan.


Similar to grilling, the heat source comes directly from the top.


First the food is sauted or seared, and then simmered in liquid for a long period of time until tender.


The food is sauted or seared first, and then cooked in liquid, but normally uses smaller ingredients such as chopped meats or vegetables.
