    gorge

    "I gorged myself on French fries."

    I ate so much that I was full and couldn't eat anymore.

    I was reading a text about British food. There was someting about a small village that was famous for it's gorge. Would it mean that people who live there like to eat a lot?

    No. The gorge in question is probably a narrow valley with steep cliffs.
