Inhabitants from the city of Salvador, Brazil, show how to enjoy to the full their favourite fruits from the local markets. No spoons, forks or napkins in these performances. As they touch, smell, bite, scrape, suck, lick, slurp, chew and swallow, they remind us that much of what makes up the quality of ‘life’ lies in such tacit and sublime pleasures as ‘the eating of one’s favourite fruit’.
