Ritual is to the soul as food is to the body – and ceremony and feasting are often combined. But just how do we bring meaning to our meals?

When we share a meal, we do so much more than simply eat - we bond, we talk, we celebrate, we connect. We might fall in love, honour an anniversary or seal a deal. And throughout human history, we have ritualised our meals with all sorts of fascinating practises that attribute meaning to the food we eat and share.

In these days of Instagramming every plateful of food, or mindlessly munching while bingeing on box sets, learn how you can transform your table into a place of appreciation, conversation and connection. You’ll also learn how to host your own Dinner for the Dead next Halloween.
