An appetizer is a substance, either food or drink, to stimulate the appetite. It is an additional component of the meal served before the traditional meal. Appetizers should include light foods that may be cold or hot, or served as finger food, but perhaps the most important feature of the dish is that it should be decorative in order to stimulate the appetite. Hors d’oeuvres or starters, is another name for appetizers.
