Cooking Methods

Project by: Devon Bain

Roasting (Dry Method)

Roasting is where a food is put into an oven and then surrounded by hot air to cook it. During the roasting the process, the food is left uncovered so all moisture that gets released can evaporate. It's also cooked on a rack so the air can circulate evenly on all sides and so that fat can drip away.

Stewing (Wet Method)

Stewing isn't really a unique cooking method. Stewing is different from either simmered or braised dishes because the ingredients are cut into smaller pieces. There is also enough liquid in the stew so that the ingredients can float freely.
