Also known as a bain-marie. Some delicate dishes, such as custard, are cooked in the oven in a water bath. Before baking, place the baking dish or pan holding the custard in a larger baking pan and add very hot water to within 1/2 inch of the top of the custard. The water insulates the custard from too much heat and promotes even cooking.
