As a host, it's always better to have too much food than not enough
@iLikeBigBooks, yeah so long as you don't waste a bunch of food. It's also good if people take food home with them.
@iLikeBigBooks, this is a common sentiment... that’s why my dad told his brother that for french people it’s an insult not to finish your plate or to turn down the offer of more. When my uncle met my grandparents for the first time he ate until he was sick to try and make sure my grandparents didn’t think my dads family rude.
My grandmother was panicking because he kept asking for more food. My uncle because he “had” to keep eating. My dad was just trying not to laugh at the chaos he caused.
