WHAT DOES QUENELLE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

quenelle

Quenelle

A quenelle is a mixture of creamed fish, or meat, sometimes combined with breadcrumbs, with a light egg binding. It is usually poached. Formerly, quenelles were often used as a garnish in haute cuisine. Today, they are usually served on their own. Lyon and Nantua are famous for their quenelles de brochet , often served with cream sauce and run under a broiler. Pike has many small bones, so passing it through a tamis is an expeditious way of removing them. The word quenelle is derived from the German Knödel. Quenelle may also refer to a food item made into an oval or egg shape, such as ice cream, sorbet, or mashed potato quenelles. This usage derives from the original shape of the egg-and-meat quenelle. It can also be served vegetarian, or "nature". Similar items are found in many cultures. The Romans are believed to have introduced this type of food to Western Europe.
