However, before we plunge into the details of some delectable starters you can enjoy at your favorite restaurant, let’s learn about the history of starters.
Why Starters Before the Main Course are Important
The sequence of the traditional meal isn’t different in most of the world. People usually begin meals with starters, move to the main course, and have dessert at the end. You might find it interesting that the course of meals wasn’t like this until the 19th century.
In fact, in Europe and France, the formal dinner used to have many courses, each comprising many dishes. Guests could enjoy a variety of dishes in each course. The number of dishes was dependent on the number of guests. Typically, the meal’s first course used to have various starters and soup, whereas the second course comprised vegetables, cold cuts, and entremets.
The third course was for desserts such as ice-creams, fruits, petits fours, and pastries. Starters such as soups, wings, and rings always had a special place in the entire meal. Served in the beginning, the items were not laid out on the dining table. They used to have individual servings.
However, the traditions began to change in the 19th century. The rule of several courses in one meal was changed. Today, each course has only one dish served in separate plated portions. The guests can enjoy their favorite starter right before the main meal.
