EtymologyEdit

From gar (cooked), from Old High German garo (prepared). Not related to gären.

PronunciationEdit

VerbEdit

garen (third-person singular simple present gart, past tense garte, past participle gegart, auxiliary haben)

  1. (transitive) cook (prepare (food) for eating)
    Wir haben die Kartoffeln im Backofen gegart.
    We cooked the potatoes in the oven.
  2. (intransitive) cook (become ready for eating)

Usage notesEdit

Garen and kochen both mean "to cook (food)", but the emphasis is different. Kochen is very general, covering all aspects of cooking and focusing on the entire process of preparing food to be eaten. Garen emphasizes the thorough heating of food; food that is gegart is "done" in the sense of completely cooked. Because kochen can also mean "boil", garen must be used when referring to a heating process other than boiling. Wir haben die Kartoffeln im Backofen gekocht would not make sense, since one boils potatoes on the stove top and not in the oven.
