To make shallow cuts (usually in a diamond pattern) in the surface of certain foods, such as meat or fish. This is done for several reasons: as a decoration on some foods (breads and meats); as a means of assisting flavor absorption (as with Marinated foods); to tenderize less tender cuts of meat; and to allow excess fat to drain during cooking.
