The right cooking bag will allow you to create a delicious, healthy meal for your family even on the busiest of days, and they are a staple for any kitchen.

What Are Cooking Bags?

The RCG! cooking bags were inspired by the French cooking tradition known as “en papillote”, which literally translates to “in parchment.” This cooking method works by trapping heat and steam to surround food, and the result is a juicy and delicious meal. There are many benefits to this cooking style including:

  • Enhanced flavor. Cooking bags can infuse vegetables and meats with delicious herbs and spices. This captures flavors that could be lost with other forms of cooking.
  • Healthy. By steaming food with water rather than butter or oil, you’ll save on calories. Plus, by using natural spices to improve the flavor, you’ll need fewer condiments and add-ons while you eat.
  • Convenient. If you love to cook but hate the cleanup afterward, cooking bags are a great option. The mess is contained within the bag, which you’ll simply recycle.

Reduced cooking time. Cook your meals faster than ever with en papillote cooking. Captured steam helps to thoroughly cook your food quickly and evenly, and your fresh meal will be ready in as little as three minutes.

This quick and easy cooking method is revolutionizing the way that we prepare meals at home, and commercial retailers are also jumping on the bandwagon. Grocers are now using cooking bags to pre-packaged meals for customers. Find a store near you.
