The old saying that food brings people closer together has never been put to better use than in our favorite new commercial starring Polish-Israeli stunner Emily Ratajkowski, who uses a colossal Carl’s Jr. Memphis BBQ burger to get closer to Sara Underwood. (Check it out. You’re welcome.) We asked Ratajkowski to tell us how we can use food to get closer to similarly beautiful women.

1) COOK TOGETHER “I’m a complete foodie, but I’m a terrible cook. If a guy can get me in the kitchen and we actually have fun cooking, that’s amazing. If you both love food, there’s nothing better than cracking a bottle of wine and making a meal together. Teamwork is fun.”

2) EAT LIKE A MAN “I grew up eating street tacos and burritos on the beach, so I like people who can eat and aren’t afraid to show it. I’m the messiest eater ever. I’ve been on dates with guys who think I’m not going to eat as much as they are, and soon I’m reaching for their plate.”

3) BRING IT HOME “Try recreating some of your favorite restaurant meals. I love cocktails, so I’ve started to experiment with them and copy some of my favorite restaurants’ drinks—one of them is a whiskey and champagne cocktail that I really like with some bitters and ginger.”
