Porridge: from distant times to the present day

And how many proverbs and sayings exist in which this valuable product is mentioned! “Without porridge, lunch is not at lunch” – it is impossible to imagine a real meal without it. Porridge is also a symbol of the connection between people – “Until you eat porridge from one bowl, you will not recognize a person either.”
