    Hi all,

    Can anybody work out whether I'm along the right lines here please...

    "Wrap de poulet fumé en feuille de riz"

    "Smoked chicken in rice paper wrap"

    a) Is this correct?
    b) How can we make it sound more appetising?

    Thanks so much,

    ElD

    rice paper wrap is indeed what they are called in English; therefore it is not unappetizing-sounding, to my American English-speaker's ear anyway.

    Alternatively, you can say smoked chicken in a rice wrap, and drop the reference to paper.

    If you do go with "ricepaper", better use it like that, one word - slightly more appetising.

    Thanks Velisarius - think I'll leave off the paper... it doesn't have anything like the appeal of "feuille", does it?

    ;-)
