Friday Food Quiz number 80

Pink’s has done another Quiz for us! Sorry, today is a little rushed so I had to do this quickly, I still need to do a few things for Easter Lunch.

It has something to do with the colour, but I am not 100% sure of the meaning.

What we know them as is basically a food item made into an oval or egg shape, but also known as a creamed meat, which is mixed with breadcrumbs, with a light egg binding which is poached.

What is the difference between a bouchée and a vol-au-vent?
There is a very fine line difference between the two.  Vol au vent is a small pastry case with a hole in to fill with sweet or savoury fillings, while a bouchée is a small pastry casing use to fill with savoury fillings.  The one is French and the other is Swiss if I am not mistaken.

It’s again a Polish thing, it is served for Easter Sunday
