is a course that typically comes at the end of a dinner, usually
consisting of sweet food but sometimes of a strongly-flavored
one, such as some cheeses. The word comes from the Old French
desservir, "to clear the table."
The word dessert is
most commonly used in Ireland, U.S., Canada, Australia (and in
France), while sweet, pudding or afters
would be more typical in the UK and some other Commonwealth
countries for this course. According to Debrett's, pudding
is the proper term, dessert is only to be used if the
course consists of fruit, and sweet is colloquial.
