Emincer is a French cooking term that means to slice thinly.
It is often mistakenly thought by English-speakers to mean "chop finely", based on what the English word "mince" means. But to mince / émincer are what French teachers used to call "faux amis" -- very similar words in the two languages that actually have different meanings.
"Mince" in French means thin.
