En Papillote - why parchment paper?

fldhkybnva | | Mar 26, 2013 03:56 PM

I learned about this technique last week and I'm hooked. It's so easy and the result was more than delicious. I just had a question on technique - I know that the technique in french means "in parchment" but is there a reason why it's specific to parchment paper? Does foil not work? Is it because of the weight of it or some other reason? Thanks and to many more dinners en papillote.
