Hors D'oeuvre

Hors d'oeuvre ( /ɔːˈdɜrv/ or /ɔːˈdɜːvr(ə)/, /ɔrˈdɜrv/;, literally "apart from the work") or the first course, are food items served before the main courses of a meal. The French (singular and plural) is hors d’œuvre; in English, the œ ligature is usually replaced by the digraph "oe" with the plural often written as "hors d'oeuvres" and pronounced /ɔrˈdɜrvz/. There are several related terms, such as a one-bite appetizer, an amuse-bouche (or other terms below, under: See also).

Famous quotes containing the word hors:

    A clerk ther was of Oxenford also
    That unto logyk hadde longe ygo.
    As leene was his hors as is a rake,
    And he nas nat right fat, I undertake,
    But looked holwe, and therto sobrely.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)
