I was reading in the Cobuild book of idiom and i came across
the idiom (making a meal out of somthing) i understad the meaning
but i had difficulty in understanding what is meant by (a four course
one) in the example used to make the meaning more clearer.
'he is making a meal out of this' she said'a four course one' to say
the least you had better have a word with him.
Thanks in advance
A four-course meal is a big, formal one: a fancy dinner has a salad course, an appetizer course, a soup course, a main course, a dessert course, etc.
