Afghan people pay much respect and give honor to their guests when some one is invited or come to us as a guest. We try to prepare the best food and dishes and welcome the guests. What we cook for the guests usaully includes rice, kabab ( lamb, beef ), meatball, plus salad, coke, and fruits. It is very important in an Afgham culture that the best food and dishes shoube be prepared for the guests otherwise there is a sense of not respecting and giving honor to the guest. We always sit on the ground instead of table and eat the food with hands instead of fork and spoons. But this is an optional to eat with hands or with fork and spoons. After every one finish and stop eating we pray and thank God for his blessings. We wash our hands before serving the food even a person eats with fork and spoon and wash again after we finsh the food.
