[Italian] plural galantine

Galantine. Lean pieces of poultry, game, pork, fish, veal or rabbit mixed with eggs, spices and other ingredients, and formed into a symmetrical, loaf shape. They are then cooked in stock and set in natural aspic. If these are wrapped in a cloth, becoming cylindrical in shape, they should be called ballottines. Strictly speaking a galantine has diced meat and a ballotine has minced (US: ground) meat.
