Known as a water bath in America or a bagnomaria in Italian, this refers to the technique of immersing a pot of food in a hot water bath to cook it gently and evenly, much like a double-boiler. The technique is often used for chocolate dishes, custards, mousses and other delicate dishes. The water in the lower bowl or pan should be hot, but never boiling.
