    baste originates from the french word 'bastir' which means to build (in this case, flavor)

    In French this is called arroser (that being the infinitive form of the verb). It literally means to spray or to water, but can also be used as "to drink to" oddly enough.

    It's the cool thing that chefs do to make them cool looking. There is no other reason. Except they saw it on TV.

    Sorry I have little respect for most of the DBs that call themselves cooks these days.

    Yep I said that. Grow a pair.

    No offense intended. I've only seen this done regularly with oil in Chinese cuisine, so I'm just guessing.

    Good stuff. It is cool looking. And a great way to get your sleeve tattoo into the close up action shot.


    Kids these days. I tell ya. With the hair and the cloths. Don't get me started on that hippity hoppity music they're listening to anymore.
