Dining customs carry diverse cultural meanings, including notions of family, culture, hospitality and propriety. They encompass “do’s and don’t”s (etiquette and taboos). They reflect our identity.

Food conjures the senses of sight, smell and taste. It is visceral, a daily necessity and pleasure. It also implies sustenance on different levels—food for thought! In the visual arts, food has held a wide variety of metaphoric meanings, including prosperity, generosity, fertility, sex, death and decay. In so many ways, food is so much more than what we simply eat.
