EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from French dessert, from desservir (disserve), from dés- (dis-) and servir (serve), thus literally meaning “removal of what has been served”.

Note: It was erroneously suggested (e.g. in "Glucose syrups: Technology and Applications" (Peter Hull, 2010)) that the word is derived from the name of Benjamin Delessert, the inventor of beet sugar. However, the term predates him by at least a century.
