Do you know where the expression  “Giving the Cold Shoulder” came from?

Meaning:  A display of coldness or indifference, intended to wound.

Many years ago in England, if you checked in late to your Inn after the kitchen closed, the dish usually offered consisted of a slice of cold roast typically a cut from the shoulder.
