Entry: blancmange (n.)

In context: "There was also a blancmange."

Definition: A sweetmeat made of dissolved isinglass or gelatine boiled with milk, etc., and forming an opaque white jelly; also a preparation of cornflour and milk, with flavouring substances.

Other: Even my admittedly weak French was enough to get "white food" out of blancmange.
