Guest at a home

  • In a home once the food is served it is common for the host to say a prayer or ask somebody else to. Another common way to begin a meal in a home is somebody at the table will say something like “this smells delicious” or “looks great”, and then the cook or person serving will informally say “enjoy”, or very very informally say “dig in!”.

  • It is courtesy not to begin eating until after the host has begun eating.

  • Afterwards, you will have dessert with the option of a coffee.
