ISO the term for a plating technique

Hi guys,

I am not English and i having difficulty looking for the word to make a nice scoop. For instnace for cream, ice , puree etc.

It sounds a bit like cornel but I just can't find the word, googled my butt off, so if someone knows the name of the technique in english that would be great

Cheers!

You're not going to get a better answer.

Quenelles: Oval-shaped scoops of any mixture like mousse, Bavarian, meringue, etc. ordinarily formed using two spoons.
