Beyond the mere nutritional aspect, a meal is a strong social factor in itself.

Dating back to the history of Mediterranean populations, sitting together around a table has always represented, and continues to represent a moment of assertion and restoration in the family and the community, of the respective history, setting, symbols, values and beliefs. Traditions and expressions are transmitted orally from one generation to the next during a banquet, in which the social function consists of continuously reinvigorating relationships between people that possess knowledge and those that learn it.
