Definition of amuse-bouche

a small complimentary appetiser offered at some restaurants

In French, “amuse bouche” means literally “it amuses the mouth.” The French were using “amuse-bouche” as a word for appetisers when English speakers embraced the culinary term almost a quarter of a century ago.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary

The amuse bouche served by Werner Hartholt from the Butlins Chef Academy and his students Ginny Zdanevičiūtė and Jessica Simmons most definitely amused the mouths of all our guests at the 2023 Exmoor Food Fest Media Launch last week at Knowle Manor. Here are some pictures of the preparation and presentation of the scallops with pancetta & beetroot with goats cheese and walnut.
