  1. Sobremesa

    The After dinner activities period. This is a time for relax and resting, which in some countries, such as Spain for example, tends to take place immediately after dinner and, especially, lunch. It begins after pudding is served and tends to last anywhere from half an hour to an hour. During summertime and holiday periods these after-dinner activity periods tend to last longer. This tends to be the time where diners socialise amongst themselves, generally without getting up from the table.1 Depending on the habits of the area or country in question, coffee, tea or a small liqueur or fire-water spirit (in a shot glass) it is generally served, or a cigar may be smoked. In countries such as Spain, the after-dinner activity period tends to be made up by the coffee, liqueur and cigar trilogy. It is a period of time in which, due to the digestion process, physical activity is avoided, allowing diners to get involved in discussions that include many different subjects (after dinner chats).
