: What does a "dish fit for the gods" mean?

This is too easy--there's got to be a catch. A dish is, of course, an entree, a food served presumably on a dish (figure of speech there, "dish" for the food on the dish), and pretty good, since the gods are notoriously fussy about their food, preferring nectar and ambrosia (know where to get those?), but presumably accepting gourmet cooking and expensive wine. So, "dish fit for the gods" means: yummy! SS
