Queen Elizabeth is noted for serving small helpings at her banquets. Everything is beautiful and delicious, but "eat sensibly" is the order of the day, not "eat hearty."

If you are still hungry, there is always the option of a second helping. Second helpings have gotten a bad name, because they suggest overeating. If you took a large first helping, the second helping is surely over the top.

The bad name is needless if you start out with small portions, with the option of taking a second helping if you really want it. If the food is really delicious, and you chew it until it liquifies, you might be satisfied with a small portion. However, if you want more, you can take a second helping.
