Buen Provecho!

I love the expression "Buen Provecho" it is the equivalent to Bon Apettite. It is said if you walk in a room and people are eating you salute saying Buen Provecho. It is said at the end of every meal, when you are done you say Muchas Gracias and people will automatically respond Buen Provecho!

Muchas Gracias!

Buen Provecho!

You have a wonderful blog and I enjoy reading it. You are such a wonderful cross-cultural ambassador for Guatemala! I especially enjoy your posts on idiomatic sayings ("dichos")! For a non-Guatemalan who speaks Spanish as a second language, these phrases and sayings are like little jewels!

Your post made me laugh out loud! Although it has been more than 10 years since my family was last in Guatemala, someone in our family will occasionally say "Muchas Gracias!" when they get up from the dinner table, and I cheerfully reply, "Buen Provecho!"
