Lets talk about the table and it’s importance. The table is the main source of energy in every family household. This is why it should always be perfectly set, even before you start cooking. This way, you will always, gain their enthusiasm in arriving home from school or after a hard day’s work.
The family should eat together at least once a day, so parents can look into their children eyes. Because the eyes are the window to our soul. The food should be made into a ritual. This is why you should remove all distractions, switching the television off, giving thanks to God and to the mother for preparing this meal.
Don’t tell me that walking into a house, where the dinner table has already been set and where a magnificent smell comes from the kitchen does not cheer you up. For me, this has always been like a welcoming sign. When I invite friends I always try to have a nicely set table as a symbol of my happiness in seeing them. It is not necessary to sit down and eat immediately, but you will enjoy more the aperitif or a chat with friends knowing that food is on its way.
There is no country in the world where meal times is not a real ritual. Never miss that moment. I love that instant when, after serving a dish, everybody stops talking and you can only hear the noise of the cutlery and some “mmmh” of satisfaction. I would never think of switching on the TV during such a magic moment and I want to thank God (the great chef of life) from the bottom of my heart, to have gathered my beloved family and friends around a table once again.
