Went to see beautiful film on Thursday, "Into Great Silence", about the Grand Chartreuse Monastery in the French Alps. Imagine my surprise when the monks were eating from 3 tier or 4 tier stainless steel tiffin boxes in their cells and out in the garden etc :-)

I'm really looking forward to seeing that film, as well. i'll watch for the Tiffins.

it used to be every working stiff's accessory in France (and elsewhere i guess). Take-away lunch, multiples tiers, and often insulated.
I used to sort of collect them in flea markets. threw everything away. DUH!
