Inthe kitchen - commensality




The word commensality refers to the practice of coming together around a table to break both bread and boundaries .

It comes from the Latin commensalis, which combines the terms com ( " together " ) and mensa ( " table " ). Until now, the word has been mostly confined to textbooks and academia, but we believe it should be brought into everyday use. After all, eating together is one of the few social conventions that everyone takes part in, regardless of our backgrounds.
