Amuse Bouche | Mouth Entertainment

amuse boucheI recently had a good friend over for a little visit. She’s…let’s call it particular…when it comes to food choices, but neither of us had eaten dinner and all I had was a bunch of leftovers I knew she probably wouldn’t like.

Challenge: accepted.

I served her up 6 little spoonfuls of pure mouth entertainment.

We’re talking about amuse-bouche, which is French for “(it) entertains (the) mouth”. You may have had it before; it’s that fancy pants presentation–a small taste in a spoon–that a chef who’s eager to tease your palette might serve before the meal begins. In the case of my friend, it was more like a pretty plate of leftovers, jazzed up Reformed Couch Potato-style.
