French term or phrase: patience (catering term)
Does anyone know what "patience" refers to in this context? I know it's a type of plant, but I don't think that fits. This comes from a description of the dinner to be offered by a party planner, who is providing a choice of two caterers.

* le diner comprenant:
* une entree (+ une "patience" pour X [name of one of the caterers])
* un plat
* (etc.)
Thanks! Karen

Explanation:
The only approximation I can think of...
between an appetizer and an entrée.

D'après votre contexte et ce qui suit, il s'agit d'une petite entrée qui sert à faire patienter le client... Ce n'est pas un amuse bouche ni une mise en bouche, puisque le menu suivant le propose APRÈS l'amuse bouche.


SEE FOLLOWING MENU:

Amuse bouche
Assiette de patience

OR:
Petite Patience

Fricassée de Noix de Saint-Jacques à la Crème de Nouilly

Thank you very much for explaining this. Now I understand what it is; they're those tiny appetizers you're served while you're looking over the menu or waiting for your order. Much obliged! Karen
