Roasting and baking are both terms used to describe cooking with dry heat. We usually refer to roasting meat or whole birds (chicken and turkey), and baking fish, breads, sweets like cake, and cookies, and sometimes smaller pieces of chicken, fruits and vegetables. What matters is the idea that either way, we are talking about surrounding the food in an enclosed environment of dry, hot air.
