Main equipment required to make
Key techniques required to make this
Marinate - To soak foods in a marinade to enhance
the flavour. It also sometimes has the effect of
tenderising foods such as meat.
Baste - To moisten with the pan juices or other
liquid during cooking. This aids in moisture retention.
