I have a rule: no food on a first date. It can only end in disaster, really. Sauces slop down your front a whole lot more eagerly if you're dining opposite somebody you're desperate to impress and vegetable-induced farts are all the more enthusiastic if they know you're sharing crudités with a stranger.

Why I Hate Barbecues

The only type of barbecue I can just about tolerate is a sit-down with cutlery affair. If there's proper napkins to hand then all the better. Barbecues where you have to stand up and wolf a hot dog or chicken kebab down are ghastly affairs. I like food and wish to enjoy it at leisure.

Napkins are glorious and those who shun them are on a very slippery slope, as far as I am concerned.
