Glossary (talk like a chef): Piping



Piping is a way of applying or shaping a preparation with a forcing (or piping) bag.

It is the best way to distribute a mixture evenly and form regular shapes as it emerges from the nozzle.

Example: "Prepare 300g of choux pastry (pâte à choux) and pipe onto a baking sheet."

Meaning: Prepare 300g of choux pastry (pâte à choux), spoon into a forcing bag, then form small, even heaps of the mixture on a baking sheet.
