une entrée

an appetizer or starter

Un repas au restaurant commence souvent avec une entrée.
A meal at a restaurant often begins with an appetizer.

TIP: This is a great word to learn, because it doesn’t mean the same thing in French as it does in English. In French, an entrée is the first course — the entry, if you will — into a meal. It is not the main course. Tomorrow, you’ll learn how to say “main course”.

This week, we’re exploring one of our favorite topics — on the menu! Food and drink is such an important part of French life that one week of words will note be enough time to do it justice. But we’ll start here for now! Bon appetit!
