The pleasure of the table is a reflected sensation from various places, like things, people, and facts. Is eating an intelligent act or is it merely an animal one? What makes it intelligent? Is it the company, your taste buds, or your mind? Is it your social and cultural background or your economic vitality? The question of food seems to have taken on a great importance to us. Food has become our source of adventure. Food has become a popular sport.
“By sharing food at the table, we are constructing an important socializing arena with family and friends, and it is also a tool for doing business. There is no other activity that carries a stronger symbolic togetherness. Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are.”
