The Dish They May Not Have Tried Before
We may not want to order something totally new as an entrée when dining out, but sampling an unknown dish at a potluck? Absolutely. That's the thinking behind Chicago nutritionist Jennifer Bruning's
approach to bringing food to parties. She incorporates ingredients that are a little outside the norm: a fruit platter with dragon fruit
, a salad featuring Berbere
-spiced roasted veggies or a dessert that sneaks in some chia seeds
. It gives people the chance to try new foods that they might have been hesitant to buy on their own, she says.
