It appeared in France: the first time the word was recorded was in 1649, in the book “Les charmants effets des barricades“, designating a convivial outdoor meal. The expression came into use in the Parisian learned society of the time, so that the term was included in the 1694 edition of the book Dictionnaire du Etymologique de la langue François by the linguist Gilles Menage. The word “pique” (corresponding to the English “pick”) comes from the verb piquer, to take small portions, to scratch, inspired by chickens scratching small portions. Nique” on the other hand designates a small thing. The juxtaposition of the two words would result in the idea of snacking, extended to the concept of a convivial meal in an outdoor space.
