torchon - definition?

wendy j | Oct 5, 2000 03:55 PM

I was reading an older post today about the Strip House restaurant and saw a dish referred to as a torchon of foie gras. Coincidentally my boyfriend just called me asking for the definition of this word when used as a cooking technique. Anybody have a clue? I think it refers to partial cooking under vacuum. Thanks!
