|01:32 am - Quick question about a word.|
I'm having a little discussion in rasseff1 about the word "entree", and its usage in the UK and the USA.
Which phase of a meal is an "entree" for you, and where do you live ?
Appetizer, and I live in the USA.
Appetizer, and I live in the UK.
Appetizer, and I live somewhere else.
Main Course, and I live in the USA.
Main Course, and I live in the UK.
Main Course, and I live somewhere else.
Smething else, which I may explain in a comment.
These quizzes are making me thirsty.

Entree used to mean main to me, but since I hang out in Australia a lot, I tend to use "main" and "appetiser" instead :-).
On menus here in the US, I think it always means main.

You mean entrée, don't you.
You don't have a These quizzes are making me hungry option...
I probably do, but shamefully, I don't know how to type accented characters directly, and couldn't be bothered looking up the HTML codes :-)
I thought about having a "hungry" option as well as thirsty, but I figured one silly option was enough.

I think it's hors d'oeuvres, then entree, then the main course. I may be wrong, though.
As to whether it means appetizer...I'm not sure.
