A dish of boned white meat or poultry, pressed into a terrine and set with jelly.
The term originally just referred to the jellied juices of meat or fish, but during the 18th century was developed into a dish in its own right.
The modern, terrine version, differs from a ballottine in that the latter is generally served warm or hot - but certainly without aspic.
