(pronounced "Amuse-A") is derived from the French word amuse-bouche which literally translates to mouth amuser.  An amuse-bouche is meant to be a small, bite-size morsel that helps to excite the palate and get you ready for the meal to come; it's an appetite teaser.  It is also a way for a chef to convey his/her philosophy of food, culinary artistry, and showmanship in a quick manner.
