More than food and not eating it during the day, hospitality is what Ramadan is all about. People reach out and invite others to break the fast with them, they give alms to the poor, they spend lots of time in the mosque. And all without food or water all day, and it's hot.
Of couse, what you are going to eat as soon as the sun goes down and the canon goes off (yes, they actually shoot off a canon), becomes a fixation. A typical iftar is a feast for the eyes: lots of small dishes like harira (tomato base soup), dates, figs, fruit, different types of bread, hard-boiled eggs, tea, coffee, juice... the list goes on.
Happy, blessed Ramadan.
