needing some advice on this.... usually if some one says they had roasted turkey i usually think of a crisp skin nicely brown whole turkey and if one said they had baked chicken i wouldnt think of a crisp skin just a little brown . But they say bake for pastry and roast for meats and the two words are interchangeable?so one can not go by if they say roast to mean a crispy skin? If cooked some meat...what do u tell some one roasted or baked........ when does it become baked and or roasted? some recipe books dont even define roast. Any advice,again thanks.( example baked potato.........roasted potato. some one said thats how they remember roast and bake.)
