Appetizers were originally introduced by the Athenians as a buffet in the early third century B.C. They would serve sea urchins, sturgeon and garlic. However, they were unpopular to start as these tiny meals weren't followed up with a main course, leaving everyone hungry and wanting more. It wasn't until the 19th century that appetizers truly caught on, as meals evolved into more of a structured ordeal.
