Negotiating the menu when you’re hoping to impress.
You might think that selecting from a menu is one of the simple pleasures in life but how much trickier does it instantly become when you‘re out on a first date?

To discuss the menu pitfalls of negotiating a first date, Jenni is joined by Hannah Betts who writes The Times column for singletons, and by freelance music journalist, Dan Cairns.
