In many cultures eating is part of their heritage, their traditions. It helps remember the good things in life and it bonds like nothing else in the world. Basically, when it comes to recognizing good food, everyone is a ‘Gourmet’. Most people naturally know when they savor something really good. Something so delicious it will make them close their eyes, smile and indulge in the moment. Sometimes even shed a tear of joy.
