What do you guys think of the two examples I just mentioned? What did you feel in viewing the images? Did you know about this type of food?

I will give more examples later.

Too bad I can't view the image of the snail food. I've learned that there is a snail celebration in Lleida every May. I'm just curious, could you tell me more about that.

* A first dish, e.g. a salad, pasta, soup, rice, etc.
* A second dish consisting on fish or meat
*A third dish which is usually dessert.

How about lunch in other countries? How many dishes do you have?

in china, we usually eat green vegetable and need soup at each dinner, some of us have some pork or fish, if they want to bant, they can only have dinner without and pork.
