It was while working for a hunger relief organization that one day I had a huge food “ah ha!” moment. Outside of its obvious supply of nutrition and nourishment, food is a vital social ingredient. We use it to celebrate, to comfort, even to woo. That speaks to why tapas restaurants are virtual magnets for mixing and mingling. There is something about sharing good eats with friends that makes morsels taste even better.

But try thinking about appetizers for more than parties or game day, because interactive dining works great for weekday dinners too. And do I have an app for that: chicken lettuce wraps. Serve this dish along side some quick-boil edamame and share the love.
