Egg Wash

An egg wash is usually a mix of beaten egg, egg and milk or egg and water brushed onto baked goods.



A bain-marie is a double boiler or water bath used to heat delicate egg-based sauces such as Hollandaise to help prevent the sauce from splitting due to too high a temperature and for melting chocolate. You can make one using a glass bowl over a pan of gently simmering water.
