I have seen this type of cooking on FTV but they used parchment paper instead of plastic, but I did not remember them using that term.

Im assuming it wouldent but your chances are better if you use name brand ziplock for your experiment Im guessing. I would be afraid of it giving off a plastic taste (which Im very sensitive to, I hate water from thermos) but if these high french chefs cant detect it I should be fine.

Master, you would have to use a plastic bag designed for the high heat cooking. I do not use plastics for the reason you mention, always use a lid or parchment paper.
