bain-marie definition and meaning

What is "bain-marie"?

A bain-marie, also known as a water bath or double boiler, is a cooking technique used to gently heat or melt delicate ingredients, such as chocolate, custards, or sauces, without burning or curdling them. It involves placing a container of food in a larger pan filled with hot water, which surrounds the food with gentle, indirect heat. The water in the outer pan helps to regulate the temperature and prevents the food from overheating or cooking too quickly.
