A basil salmon terrine

A terrine (French pronunciation: ​[tɛ.ʁin]), in French cuisine is a pâté made in a pottery container, also called a terrine.[1][2]

Terrines are usually served cold[3] or at room temperature. Most terrines contain a large amount of fat as well as pork, although it is often not the main ingredient; many terrines are made with typical game meat, such as pheasant and hare.[4]

Less commonly, a terrine may be another food cooked or served in the cooking dish called a 'terrine'.[3]
