Word of the Day: Chiffonade


Pronounced: Shihf uh NAHD

Literally translated, this French phrase means “made of rags.” Culinarily it refers to thin strips or shreds of vegetables (classically sorrel and lettuce), either lightly sautéed or used raw to garnish soups, salads, and other dishes.


WestchesterEats highly recommends Food Lover’s Companion by Sharon Tyler Herbst and Ron Herbst for your kitchen library. Word of the Day is an extraction from their most recent edition with more than 6,700 entries A – Z.
