An entrée is a smaller course that precedes the main course, except in North America. It is also called a starter (UK).


[edit] Use

In North America, this smaller course is typically called the first course, appetizer, or starter, with entrée used as a synonym for the main course.

In its use outside of North America, an entrée is more substantial than hors d'œuvres and better thought of as a half-sized version of a main course, and restaurant menus will sometimes offer the same dish in different-sized servings as both entrée and main course.

[edit] Origins

The word entrée is French. It generally means "entry", and "a smaller, first course" when used in relation to food.
