Exciting experiences for the palate

By Angelo Falcone

A popular social activity on Valentine’s Day is the romantic dinner. Introducing our palates to new and exotic foods can be fun and make a lasting impression. For many, fast food or being cheap is not an option — especially if it’s a first date. Many individuals brush up on a foreign language to impress their dates as they order at a fancy, exotic restaurant. Others may opt to cook an exotic dish for their dates at home and serve it by candlelight.

“Asked On The Line” asked some of the men on the mainline, “If you could try, or learn to cook, a new type of food that you have not tried before, what would it be? If you could learn a foreign language, what would it be?”
