AIR DATE: August 15, 2013

Why do we have so many first dates at restaurants? What does it mean when a romantic partner wants to cook for you? And why is it so important to share a romantic meal on Valentine's Day? It all goes back to the days of hunting and gathering. But nowadays, romantic meals are more likely to happen in fancy restaurants than around open fires. We'll talk to a nutritional anthropologist and several restauranteurs about the role that food plays in their relationships.
