comestible (noun) (used always in the plural form comestibles) food; eatables.
Comestibles are food items. All the items of food served at a meal are comestibles. Soups, chicken, turkey, fish, etc., that form a meal are all comestibles.
- The dinner was wonderful, with delicious comestibles like roast beef, smoked salmon, asparagus etc., and with the choice wines, served liberally.
- In spite of the name the restaurant enjoys for its tasty and highly palatable food, this dinner was rather disappointing. None of the comestibles, the mutton chops and chicken including, were tasty, and none of us had a second helping.
