What English common word or phrase used to describe Passing of humorous complimentary remarks on food one is eating (the remarks are considered silly or funny and as showing that the speaker is unaccustomed to good or well-cooked meals)?
I am looking for English equivalent expression for a Hausa word santi or fanya.
For example, Mr A hosted Mr B for a dinner in his house. Mr B was served a good food (specially prepared for him) eating together with Mr A and some members of A's family. During the dinner Mr B suddenly made a remark not necessarily considered complimentary but considered silly and funny by his listeners.
Assuming I am among the listeners who were laughing already, how could I in English common expression show that the speaker was carried away by the taste of the good food to make fun of him alluding to the fact that he was unaccustomed to that type of food which he never ate before?
