Friday’s Food Quiz Number 61

We were away for the weekend and so I am only getting to Friday’s Food Quiz Number 61 this morning. Thanks Pink for all the hard work that goes into this quiz 🙂

1. What is a Fraisier?

Thanks to all the blog posts last week, I know this refers to a cake, and not the TV sitcom

2. What does the cooking terminology “Balloutine” means?

This was the Top Chef quick fire challenge this Saturday night, and the same dish I had for my 40th. A ballotine is a protein that has been boned, stuffed and rolled and is then poached or braised. 

3. What is the difference between a Sorbet and a Granita?

A Sorbet is made from sweetened water and a purée of fruit to which you can add alcohol. A citrus or savoury sorbet is often served as a palate cleanser. A granita, which is similar to a sorbet in ingredients has a coarser texture.
