"Je ne ressens pas le besoin que le silence soit occupé par la parole" (I don't feel the need silence should be occupied by speech) is a motto which sacralize the meal time. You can look at it and wonder why carrots hang at this wood board. Well the close link between the carrots tops and the wood is that I've saved them from the bin as same as the wood board I've used. I've kept the originals holes from the board to hide them with the carrots top. We tell kids to finish their plate and to not waste food, it is exactly what I advise you to do while you're an adult now.
