Sometimes we serve our customers dishes that require more chewing than usual to get them thinking about how our diet has evolved through the ages. A dentist who was studying evolutionary changes in the human diet observed how these changes led to physiological changes in the human body. Having to chew less means the facial muscles become underused and weakened, eventually leading to changes in the bone structure of the face. What we look like depends on our health and our changing diet.
On this instance, what we asked our customers to chew over and over again like chewing gum was a ravioli pocket made of altar bread and filled with chicken broth and herbs. As it wasn’t easy to separate the casing from the filling, they had no choice but to chew it and swallow it in one go. There were two alternatives: eat it or leave it.
