Dinner Table is the very core of the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Cultures, the sacred meeting spot of the family and receptions, place for intermingling of friends. There, recommendations are received and opinions are given, inspirations are assumed and intimacies are provided. Long Sunday morning breakfasts, pleasurable noon-time rendezvous, banquet-like dinners, invitations, sahur, iftar, and many, many more. Neither are the servings ended, nor the narrations, naive gossips are made, and the country is resurrected. Food is shared, worries are shared, worries are thereby reduced; pleasures are shared, pleasures are thus enhanced. Reminiscences of the past are memorized, the future is worded with hope, 'the moment' is lived, plates, glasses are incessantly filled and emptied.
