Cooking en papillote

Cooking en papillote Enlarge

Cooking a product en papillote captures all the flavours and aromas, which results in a fragrant and flavourful dish. As you open the packet, the aromas will envelop you. Cooking en papillote has two goals: cooking the product and the aromatic experience at the table. The product is wrapped up with aromatic ingredients and just a little bit of liquid. The packet is then cooked in oven at around 170˚C. The heat of the oven will turn the liquid into a fragrant steam that cooks the product.

Equipment required: Baking paper/silicone paper/Carta Fata, scissors, brush, oven.

Can be used for: Meat, fish, shellfish and crustaceans, vegetables, fruit.
