A terrine with peppercorns and bay leaves.

A terrine is a glazed earthenware (terracotta, French terre cuite) cooking dish[1] with vertical sides and a tightly fitting lid, generally rectangular or oval. Modern versions are also made of enameled cast-iron.

Terrine may also easily be confused with tureen, a large, deep, and usually round or oval covered dish, used for serving soups or stews.
