Hey guys, let's play the ABC game using culinary terms.

Here are the rules: The first person (me) comes up with a culinary term starting with the letter "A", the next person "B", the next "C" - and so on.

Give your term, but also give a short description of what your word is.

Let's Play!

Arborio Rice

Arborio Rice is used to make Risotto because this short and fat rice has an extremely high starch content. It is this high starch content that gives risotto its creamy texture.

Deglaze: Adding liquid (water, stock, wine) to a pan you have cooked meat in to dissolve/remove the bits of meat juices from the pan. Usually done so that you can use this flavor in a sauce.
