Posted by Tembua’s former Marketing Coordinator, who began this blog.

Went last week to Solera, a Tapas restaurant in Minneapolis, with my dear friend, Liz. Shared a pitcher of Sangria and nibbled our way through tiny plates of Chorizo Stuffed Dates, Piquillo Peppers Stuffed with Herbed Goat’s Milk Cheese, Grilled Spanish and Portuguese Sausages with White Bean Flan and Shrimp and Tetilla Croquetas. Each dish a vision; each bite a delight.

I love nibble food. Food that can be picked up and eaten in a tidy bundle – much better than full plates of pasta or meat and veg. It allows me to combine several of my favorite things; eating and chatting (others would include a good Rioja and walking along a moonlit beach, but that’s for my Penthouse profile).

I’d much rather order several appetizers than a full meal. Sharing food brings an informality I like to an outing – whether it be for business or personal. For me, nibble eating equals social eating – a method of getting nourishment whilst communicating. And let’s face it; I communicate for a living, meeting clients, potentials, vendors, co-workers, business mentees – you name it.

In my mind, noshing has two benefits; it allows me to try a plethora of foods without pigging out as well as conversing in between mouthfuls. I can talk and eat, eat and talk – I’m in chat heaven!
