From soup to nuts is an expression meaning ‘from A to Z’. But soup and nuts? The origin comes from a full course meal in which you start with a soup and end with a dessert of nuts. In Latin there is a similar expression, “ab ovo usque ad mala” meaning from egg to apple, reflecting the progression of courses for the Romans.
In the 1500s the English would say ‘from potage to cheese‘ depicting their meal sequence also.
