Something which creates or whets an appetite.
Any food or beverage served before the meal. It is often coordinated with the entree to stimulate the appetite.
An herb or substance that excites or increases the appetite. (Syn: Digestive)
Any small, bite-size food served before a meal to whet and excite the palate. Used synonymously with the term Hors d' Oeuvres, though this term more aptly describes finger food, whereas appetizer can also apply to a first course served at table.
