i first like to say roasting to me is something with a crust .....u know brown. But also they say the method u use for roasting is also baking. (there the same). But,when some one says roasted potatoes that could also mean baked ... both would be correct,but to me roasted potatoes is having a crisp skin ,cut up and baked is whole. When some one says roasted something what do think of?....... do u associate roast with a crisp brown skin?
