Hello,
I am reading Life after life by Kate Atkinson.
"Sylvie asked Bridget to drag a table out on to the small but useful terrace so that the children could eat their tea outside – herring roe on toast and a pink shape that was barely set and quivered without restraint. The sight of it made Sylvie feel slightly queasy. ‘Nursery food,’ Hugh said with relish, observing his children eating."
I don't understand the sentence highlighted in bold. Would you like to help me? Thank you.
