A Quick Overview Of How To Say Vol-Au-Vent
'Vol au vent' *(m) which translates delightfully as 'flight of the wind' goes by the same name in English. Vol-au-vents are puff pastry (pâte feuilletée) cases, of varying sizes. Before the pastry is baked, it is scored, and after baking the scored part in the middle is removed, along with some of the soft pastry to make a light pastry case.

Vol-au-vents can be filled with various fillings, such as seafood, chicken, or veal - usually bound with a white sauce. Say this phrase as though it were one word.
