Chef Tim Says....

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.Today's featured technique in our instructions in pictures series is roasting.

Roasting is dry cooking food in an oven in a large uncovered pan. The last three words of this definition are the key. By not covering the food, the heat creates a crusty brown exterior, sealing in moisture. The pan should be large enough that the moisture that does escape from the food evaporates quickly; otherwise the steam will keep the food from browning properly.

Tender meats are ideally suited for roasting because dry cooking is not sufficient to break down the fibers in tougher cuts. Examples like tenderloin, prime rib or top round should be roasted, while chuck is best cooked with moist heat (see Braising). Fish and fowl are ideal for roasting. Instructions in pictures: Maple Sage Turkey Breast

Featured Recipe

Maple Sage Turkey Breast

 The nutrition information for this recipe includes the skin. Most nutritionists will tell you to not eat chicken or turkey skin because that's where all the fat is. Dr. Gourmet recipes that use chicken follow this guideline, but this recipe is really designed for special occasions. Eat the skin if you like because holidays are the time to splurge and roast turkey is the perfect comfort food to splurge on.
