The essence of eating is beautifully prosed up in the very first page of ‘Life is Meals’ book of food lovers by James and Kay Salter as follow:
The meal is the essential act of life.
It is the habitual ceremony, the long record of marriage, the school for behavior, the prelude to love.
Among all peoples and in all times, every significant event in life – be it wedding, thriump, or birth – is marked by a meal or the sharing of food or drink.
The meal is the emblem of civilization. What would one know of life as it should be lived or nights as it should be spent apart from meals?
I love it and want to share it with you.
