The whole process of dinner can be so arduous at times. First you cook the meal, then you set the table, then you eat the meal, then you clear the table, then you wash the dishes, then you put the dishes away, and then you repeat the whole process ad nausea. Wouldn't it be so much simpler if you took that whole middle portion completely out of the equation? What if you could eat dinner without ever dirtying a single plate?
Some cultures in India and Ethiopia have figured out a perfect method for eating dinner that requires absolutely no plates at all. They've come up with one of the best round kitchen table
ideas in the world. They turn their dinner table into a giant round bowl, protect it against the food by covering the bowl with butcher's paper, and eat food with their hands and some tortillas. They never have to wash dishes other than the ones they cook with and they experience a much closer relationship with both their food and the people they eat it with because they are all sitting at and sharing one gigantic bowl.
