Whether you’re dining alone this year, wooing your true love, or just enjoying the excuse to eat a sumptuous feast with friends, there are many reasons to love the foods and flavors of Valentine’s Day.
In fact, I would argue that Valentine’s Day sort of exists for the food. Beyond the shiny gifts, the whole idea of the day is to connect intimately with one you love. What better way to ignite that connection than with food?
Food sets the tone, food inspires, food celebrates, food makes us swoon. Well, maybe that last one is just me.
But truly, there’s little better in life than good food shared leisurely with a special someone, or group of people, you love deeply.
To that end, this month I've compiled a really fantastic list of real food ideas for a romantic dinner with those you love and I've shared it as my monthly contribution over at the Traditional Cooking School by GNOWFGLINS.
I seriously drooled while I was putting this list together! I mean, how can you wrong with meal ideas like:
- Sirloin Steak with Balsamic Onions, Bacon, and Brie,
- Simple Lemon Rosemary Salmon,
- Asparagus Leek Bisque,
- Chocolate Pots de Crème with Lavender and Sea Salt,
- Mayan Chocolate Truffles, and
- How to Make a Bacon Bouquet!
May you linger long with those you love this week!
