    white cod third course

    "Between his medium-rare steak and her white cod third course, she had several glasses of wine, and he polished off two double JackDaniels." I thought that "third course" - it is dessert, isn't it?

    Degustation is another term for eating your way through an enormous number of courses.

    Re: white cod third course

    It was just a dinner for two in my example. In my language "the third course" automatically means dessert.
