Word of the Day: Chinois
Building up your kitchen vocab arsenal
Chinois, another word we've happily borrowed from the French, is a cone-shaped sieve with an extremely fine mesh used to strain custards, purees, soups and sauces. Pronounced shin'-WAHz, the word literally means "Chinese." A chinois can also be used to dust pastry with a light layer of powdered sugar. Now you know how they make that oh-so-creative heart of cocoa on your cappuccino.
