Roasting is a cooking method that uses dry heat where hot air covers the food, cooking it evenly on all sides with temperatures of at least 150 °C from an open flame, oven, or other heat source. Roasting can enhance the flavor through caramelization and Maillard browning on the surface of the food. Roasting uses indirect, diffused heat, is suitable for slower cooking of meat in a larger, whole piece. Meats and most root and bulb vegetables can be roasted. Any piece of meat red meat, cooked in this fashion is called a roast. Meats and vegetables prepared in this way are described as "roasted", e.g. roasted chicken or roasted squash. For roasting, the food may be placed on a rack, in a roasting pan or, to ensure application of heat, may be rotated on a spit or rotisserie. If a pan is used, the juice can be retained for use in Yorkshire pudding, etc.. During oven roasting, hot air circulates around the meat. There are several plans for roasting meat: low-temperature cooking, high-temperature cooking, a combination of both.

Each method can be suitable, depending on the tastes of the people. A low-temperature oven, 95 to 160 °C, is best when cooking with large cuts of meat and whole chickens; this is not technically roasting temperature. The benefit of slow-roasting an item is a more tender product. More of the collagen that makes meat tough is dissolved in slow cooking. At true roasting temperatures, 200 °C or more, the water inside the muscle is lost at a high rate. Cooking at high temperatures is beneficial if the cut is tender enough—as in filet mignon or strip loin—to be finished cooking before the juices escape. A reason for high temperature roasting is to brown the outside of the food, similar to browning food in a pan before pot roasting or stewing it. Fast cooking gives more variety of flavor, because the outside is brown while the center is much less done; the combination method uses high heat just at either the beginning or the end of the cooking process, with most of the cooking at a low temperature. This method produces the golden-brown texture and crust, but maintains more of the moisture than cooking at a high temperature, although the product will not be as moist as low-temperature cooking the whole time.

Searing and turning down to low is beneficial when a dark crust and caramelized flavor is desired for the finished product. In general, in either case, the meat is removed from the heat before it has finished cooking and left to sit for a few minutes, while the inside cooks further from the residual heat content, known as carry over cooking; the objective in any case is to retain as much moisture as possible, while providing the texture and color. As meat cooks, the structure and the collagen breaks down, allowing juice to come out of the meat. So meat is juiciest at about medium rare. During roasting and vegetables are basted on the surface with butter, lard, or oil to reduce the loss of moisture by evaporation. In recent times, plastic oven bags have become popular for roasts; these cut cooking times and reduce the loss of moisture during roasting, but reduce flavor development from Maillard browning, somewhat more like stew or pot roast. They are popular for turkeys; until the late 19th century, roasting by dry heat in an oven was called baking.

Roasting meant turning meat or a bird on a spit in front of a fire. It is one of the oldest forms of cooking known. Traditionally recognized roasting methods consist only of baking and cooking over or near an open fire. Grilling is not technically a roast, since a grill is used. Barbecuing and smoking differ from roasting because of the lower temperature and controlled smoke application. Grilling can be considered as a low-fat food preparation, as it allows any fat in the food to drip away. Before the invention and widespread use of stoves, food was cooked over open flames from a hearth. To roast meat, racks with skewers, or, if accessible, complicated gear arrangements, would be utilized to turn the piece. In the past, this method was associated with the upper class and special occasions, rather than customary mealtimes, because it required freshly killed meat and close attention during cooking, it was easy to ruin the meat’s taste with a smoky fire or negligence to rotate it at regular intervals.

Thus, elite families, who were able to afford quality meat, appointed this task to servants or invested in technology like automatic turning devices. With further technological advances, cooking came to accommodate new opportunities. By the 1860s, working families were able to afford low-priced stove models that became sufficiently available. However, the key element of observation during roasting became difficult and dangerous to do with the coal oven. Hence, traditional roasting disappeared as kitchens became no longer equipped for this custom and soon thereafter, "baking" came to be "roasting". Roasting can be applied to a wide variety of meat. In general, it works best for cooking whole chickens and leaner cuts of lamb and beef; the aim is to highlight the flavor of the meat itself rather than a sauce or stew, as it is done in braising or other moist-heat methods. Many roasts are tied with string prior to roasting using the reef knot or the packer's knot. Tying holds them together during roasting, keeping any stuffing inside, keeps the roast in a round profile, which promotes cooking.

Red meats such as beef and venison, certain game birds are roasted to be "pink" or "rare", meaning that the center of the roast is still red. Roasting is a

Neoguraleus finlayi

Neoguraleus finlayi is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Mangeliidae. The length of the shell attains its diameter 4 mm; the small, solid shell is subturriculated. It is axially costate and spirally lirate with 2 brown spiral bands; the sculpture consistis of 10 to 16 on the body whorl. The interstices are of about the same width as the ribs, which are obsolete on the narrow shoulder or depression of the lower whorls, continued nearly to the base, they are crossed by more or less distinct spiral lirae, continuous between and across the ribs, stouter upon the neck of the siphonal canal. The colour of the shell is light flavescent, with 2 reddish or brown intercostal bands at the suture, the lower of them becoming broad on the body whorl, extending to the margin of the flattish fascicle below; these bands are absent, or the apex and the fasciole only are brown. The spire is conic and somewhat higher than the aperture; the protoconch is smooth, with a flatly rounded nucleus.

The shell contains 8 whorls, the earlier ones flattish, the others convex, with a narrow shoulder or depression. The base of the shell is contracted; the suture is impressed and undulating. The aperture is oblique, narrowly ovate, angled above and produced below into a short broad siphonal canal oblique and not emarginate at the base; the outer lip is strengthened by the last rib, flatly convex and with a shallow rounded sinus a little below the suture. The columella is faintly arcuate, drawn out to a narrow ridge towards the siphonal canal; the inner lip is smooth and narrow. This marine species occurs off South Island. Tucker, J.
