What does "on the bias" mean?

Cutting a baguette, a carrot, a zucchini, a shallot, a scallion, a green bean or a banana on the bias means to slice it not straight across, but at a roughly 45-degree angle.

This angled cut creates elongated, oval-shaped pieces and makes for a more elegant presentation. In the case of baguette slices, it means you can get more surface area on even, thin slices of bread, in order to make bruscetta, pile on cheese, or to float in a soup.
