Roulade: A roulade is a dish in various European cuisines typically consisting of a slice of meat rolled around a filling, such as cheese, vegetables, or other meats. The term roulade originates from the French word "rouler", meaning "to roll". A roulade, like a braised dish, is often browned then covered with wine or stock and cooked. Such a roulade is commonly secured with a toothpick, metal skewer or a piece of string. The roulade is then sliced into rounds and served.

Roulade: A roulade is an elaborate embellishment of several notes sung to one syllable. It is most associated with the operatic coloratura vocal style. It consists of a single phrase, or could even be part of a longer phrase. It is more extended than ornaments such as a trill, mordent or turn, but not to the extent that it could be called a cadenza. It is usually performed in a rhythmically free style, either by use of rubato or over a musical pause and it is in this way that it is distinguished from a melisma. Examples are in the operatic works of Bellini and Donizetti and the Nocturnes of Chopin. Extended embellishments found in modern day Gospel vocalisations could be said to be roulades.
