Basting is a practice so ingrained in the fabric of cooking poultry that most of us do it without question. We assume all that basting will make the bird juicier and more flavourful. However, according to Cook's Illustrated, you could probably just skip it.


Unfamiliar kitchens (such as those in holiday rentals) can really throw off one's cooking game. If you happen to find yourself in one that lacks a basting brush and you have fowl to roast, do not fret: a coffee filter can save the day.
