Hors d'œuvre - Smoked Salmon - Christchurch NZ by 


Hors d’œuvre literally “apart from the main work”), also known as appetizers, 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, as an amuse-bouche. there is an extended period between when guests arrive and when the meal is served (for example during a cocktail hour), these might also serve the purpose of sustaining guests during the wait, in the same way that aperitifs are served as a drink before meals. Hors d’oeuvre are sometimes served with no meal afterward. This is the case with many reception and cocktail party events.
Hors d’oeuvre may be served at the table, as a part of the sit-down meal, or they may be served before sitting at the table. Hors d’oeuvre prior to a meal are either stationary or passed. Stationary hors d’oeuvre are also referred to as “table hors d’oeuvre”. Passed hors d’oeuvre are also referred to as “butler-style” or “butlered” hors d’oeuvre.
Though any food served prior to the main course is technically an hors d’oeuvre, the phrase is generally limited to individual items, not crudités, cheese or fruit. For example, a glazed fig topped with mascarpone and wrapped with prosciutto is considered an “hors d’oeuvre,” whereas figs on a platter are not. A more substantial starter or first course served at the table might be referred to as an entrée
Food prepared by our daughter Haydene for a function in Christchurch.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
