pomme tournée

Hello. I'm having difficulty translating an item on a menu again, and would appreciate any help. The item in question is pomme tournée, which is being served as part of a main course with cigare de volaille à la méditerranéenne and mesclun. If anyone has any ideas about this, I would be very grateful.

Many thanks (in anticipation)

    First, pommes tournées are potatoes--not apples. They are pared into dainty barrel shapes which allows them to turn in the pan when cooked. See here.

    I'm not sure what you could call them in English--I've only seen such potatoes in France. Certainly sautéed or boiled potatoes (depending on the chef's recipe) would describe how they will taste if not how they were pared.

    Doing a quick recipe search I found a number examples of "turned potatoes" which seem to match wildan1's description
