  10. 10. Roasting & Baking  These are the process of surrounding a food with dry, heated air in an enclosed area.2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 10
  11. 11. ROASTING Advantages:-  Minimal fire risk  Meat juices from the meat can be used for gravy which enhance the flavor  Gives a variety to the menu Disadvantages:-  Constant attention is required  Losses of nutrients like amino acids2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 11
  12. 12. ROASTING Safety Rules  The correct degree of cooking of meats must be accurately measured to protect from parasitic worms and pathogenic bacteria  Care should be taken when handling oven trays to prevent spillages of hot fat  Safe practices should be observed in operational procedure, clothing and footwear2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 12
  13. 13. Sautéing  It uses conducted heat from the sauté pan with the aid of a little oil/fat to cook the food  Stir frying is similar but is generally done with a Wok2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 13
  14. 14. Pan Frying/ Shallow Frying  It is similar to sautéing & deep frying where the heat is conducted to the food from the heated pan using a moderate amount of oil/fat. There is also some convection of heat through the medium of fat.2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 14
  15. 15. Deep Frying  It uses conduction & convection to transfer heat to the food submerged in the hot fat.2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 15
  16. 16. FRYING Advantages:-  Taste is improved, along with the texture  Increases the calorific value.  Fastest method of cooking  In shallow fat frying the amount of oil consumption can be controlled Disadvantages:-  The food may become oily or soggy with too much absorption of oil.  The food becomes very expensive  Fried food takes long time to digest.  Repeated use of heated oils may produce harmful substances and reduce the smoking point2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 16
  17. 17. FRYING Safety Rules  All personnel must be trained in correct usage of the equipment  The proper level of frying medium should be used  The fryer must not be overloaded as this may cause hot oil/fat overflow.  Drain wet foods and then dry with absorbent paper. This prevents splatters of hot fat  Pans must be moved carefully on the stove top to prevent splattering and burns2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 17
  18. 18. Moist Heat Cooking Methods  Poaching  Boiling  Steaming  Sous vide2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 18
  19. 19. Poaching  It uses convection to transfer heat to cook foods that don’t need higher temperature or time.  Water temperature for poaching eggs should be around 160 to 180ºF (71-82ºC).  As a rule of thumb, bring the water to a boil, then reduce it to a simmer before cooking.2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 19

  21. 21. POACHING Advantages:-  Foods with delicate texture may be cooked without breaking up.  Poached foods are easily digested  No fat needs to be added to cook the food Disadvantages:-  Poaching is not particularly suitable for large pieces of food  There is some flavor and nutrient loss from the food the cooking liquid  There is little development in color and flavor2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 21
  22. 22. POACHING Safety Rules  Equipment should be matched to the quantity of food to prevent spillages.  Care should be taken in handling dishes which are brought to temperature on the top of the stove and then transferred to the oven2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 22
  23. 23. Boiling  It uses convection to transfer heat from the liquid to the food. In boiling there is a large amount of rapidly bubbling liquid to cook the food.2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 23
  24. 24. BOILING Advantages  Tougher, cheaper cuts of meat may be used  Heat transfer is fairly rapid and efficient  The food is not likely to burn  The food remains moist Disadvantages  Flavor and some color may be lost from the food into liquid  Loss of nutrients (especially water-soluble vitamins) may be high2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 24
  25. 25. BOILING Safety Rules  The boiling utensil should be matched with the quantity of food to be cooked  The food handler should take care when placing foods into or removing items from boiling liquids  When reducing liquids adequate ventilation should be available to prevent dampness2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 25
  26. 26. Steaming  Steaming uses convection for transferring heat from the steam to the food being cooked.2/8/2013 BAC 101 Culinary Foundation Level 1 26
