In Western culture dessert is a course that typically comes at the
end of a meal, usually consisting of sweet food.
The word comes from the French language
as dessert and this from Old French desservir, "to clear the table" and "to serve."
Common desserts include cakes, cookies, pastries, ice cream, pie, and candies. Fruit may
also be eaten with the dessert. In Russia, breakfast foods such as Bliny, Oladi, and Syrniki served with
honey and jam are also popular as desserts.
In England, the term pudding might be used among
the Upper and Upper-middle classes, with dessert only used if the course consists of fruit.
