pastete=pie

piccata= chip of calf
tomaten=tomatoes spagehtti=spaghetti

orangendesert = orange desert (could be pudding or a cream)

Re: Help with translation of menu

1) I think that's Vol au Vent and rice.
It's a flake pastry shell with cream, veal & mushrooms

2) Piccata is a italian grilled veal with a lovely sauce made with dry white wine, lemon, black peper + a touch of flour for consistency

3) Either a pastry containing oranges or maybe an orange mousse (not clear)

Thanks flow23 and Sky -- I think that will do. I have a good idea of what to describe now.
