After enjoying several recent get togethers loaded with tradition, I've decided to build a list of group dining/eating experiences from various cultures, religious traditions, etc. The key component is the centrality of food to the get together and the participation in the same meal by several to many people, etc.
Here is what I have thought of off the top of my head. Can folks weigh in with others?
Beef Seven Ways
The Feast of the Seven Fishes
Tea (Afternoon or High) (see comments for interesting info.)
p.s. I'm not as concerned about whether something totally fits these parameters, fire away!
And thank you!
