The quenelle, a semolina dumpling, is a culinary specialty of Lyon, France. The quenelle dough is called “panade”, which is prepared mainly with semolina flour, eggs, milk, and water. The quenelle has a similar texture to the Roman gnocchi; however the quenelle has an elongated shape. The dough is first cooked and then cooled before shaping. They can be served with a tomato, crayfish, or béchamel sauce. Most popular is the Nantua sauce, made with crayfish, carrots, celery and a good cognac.
