A terrine (French pronunciation: ​[tɛ.ʁin]) most commonly refers to a French forcemeat loaf similar to a pâté, made with more coarsely chopped ingredients.[1] Terrines are usually served cold[1] 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 French game meat, like deer and boar (which are generally not eaten any other way in France).[citation needed]

The word is also, though less commonly, used to refer to other foods cooked or served in the eponymous dish.[1]
