Around the world there are some odd practices to compliment the cook

  • Japan: Slurping your noodles is a great way to compliment the person that made them.
  • China: Not eating everything on your plate shows the food was so good and you ate so much you couldn't eat any more.
  • Egypt: Burping is considered the highest compliment you can pay the food preparer. Also, opposite of China, asking for more is a great compliment.
  • India: Thanking your host at the end of the meal is frowned upon. To compliment the cook on a great meal, return the favor and invite them over for a meal close to the meal they prepared for you.
  • Germany: At least trying everything on your plate and don't cut up your food.
  • Medieval France: The practice of swearing at a chicken at the table was common practice. The assumption was to give good luck, but we'll never really know that answer.
