Glossary (talk like a chef): "Poaching"
Poaching is a way of cooking food (usually slowly) by lowering into a hot liquid: water, vegetable stock
, for example.
This gentle method of cooking allows the food to retain all its flavour more easily. Example:
"Poach the peaches
after peeling in a light syrup
Peel the peaches, then lower into a just-simmering sugar syrup and cook until tender.
