Entremets

Term rarely used. French name for made dishes of vegetables, sundry savories, puddings, creams, something less than an entree. "Another Traite de la Cuisine had just then been published, by one Menon it would appear, but it was a mere rechauffe of Massialot's work. This long forgotten gift of the god of revelry took so well that three years later Marin, the 'Officer,' - the cook no less - who produced it issued a sequal in three volumes, with a preface by De Querlon. The first point in the history of cookery that strikes one is that entremets were just then beginning to get confounded with hors dceuvres, and these with entrees; the recent revolution in taste had extended even to the order of the dishes. Except in 'repasts of ceremony,' there were no fixed rules; and Marin, while on the subject remarked, under the head of Spring, that the sterility of that season left him no entremets but ham, or what his skill could evolve out of vegetables".
