SZECHUAN MUSIC CONSERVATORY: The food was overwhelming, and we applauded the chef, but he complained, "You didn't eat very much!" I found that if I sampled just one chopstick-pinch of food from each dish at a feast like this, I would still wind up stuffed. Of course, the problem was exacerbated by the fact that we were usually offered dinner around 5:00 or so, after having earlier eaten a heavy lunch.
