It always bothers me when people, especially my mother, say I’m not enjoying my food because of how quickly I eat. I actually just can’t enjoy food as much when eating slowly. I eat quickly because I want more of that food to taste that good flavour again. This doesn’t mean I stuff my mouth completely, though.
While I agree that eating slower is more healthy and elegant, saying I’m not enjoying my food is total bullshit.
Edit: I should have probably worded it better. What I meant is people seem to think that you won’t physically be able to enjoy the food if it goes gets chewed and goes down fast, rather than taking longer to really ‘savour’ the flavour. I don’t mean people eating slowly because they don’t like the food, or eating fast because they like it.
