    Coarse feeder

    I don’t quite understand what it means here:
    Abas knew how to cook only native food, and Cooper, a coarse feeder, found his gorge rise against the everlasting rice.
    What do coarse feeders eat – fat meat, kipper…?

    Re: Coarse feeder

    'Coarse' means, among other things, lacking in delicacy or refinement.

    You can describe someone as being 'coarse' or having 'coarse manners.'

    It would seem to me that a 'coarse feeder' is someone who has no appreciation of food unless it comes in a bun from a fast food restaraunt.
