amuse bouche'

amuse bouche'...just discovered this word and was very curious about it.

Now, I don't watch alot of Top Chef or those kind of programs to have already known what this was, and was leafing through a magazine and saw the term accompanied with pics of tiny mouth-size bites of delicacies. So, I did the french/english translation thing online, and was amused (no pun intended) to see the literal translation, haha, yes.

amuse - adj. amused

bouche - n. mouth, facial feature above the chin and below the nose

haha...amused mouth...who comes up with this stuff? It's actually very appropriate for what this is, a tiny morsel of taste. I guess french is still the preferred language of food... :)
