I came across this term in a recipe the other day and couldn't find what it means. Taking it in context, I gather it has something to do with rolling up meat round a stuffing. Does anybody know what "Farinet" means?
I looked in the Epicurious dictionary but it wasn't listed. Thanks

According to the new Larousse Gastronomique, a farinette is "A sweet or savoury pancake made with beaten eggs and flour. There are several variations to be found in different parts of the Auvergne, where they are also know as omelette enfarinée ('floured omelette'), pachade (in the Ayeron) and farinade."

All well and good, but that doesn't really help you, does it, Jock?

Checkout the term in the OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY at your local library. Or, do a search at GOOGLE.COM.

If you try the OED, look at the full, multi-volume version. The compact version and its supplement don't have the word.

Thanks for your help guys. I asked one of the chefs at work today and he said it means to dust or coat with flour. So there you go, another little gem of information to add to the store. :)
