Saturday night, date night – perfect for Valentine’s fun in the kitchen. Sure, you could go out and enjoy one of those special prix fixe menus … but cooking together is a delightfully delicious way to spend this romantic holiday. Plus, a blizzard is forecast for Saturday night. Better to snuggle safe at home than be out on slippery roads.
Start the evening with a glass of champagne or a Strawberry Tini. Nothing says I love you like a pink drink! Stay with the pink theme and nibble Smoked Salmon Mousse while you cook. Unless you’d prefer some Savory Parmesan Shortbread with Tomato Jam or adorable Tartelettes au Fromage avec Saucisse et Poireaux (Cheese Tartlets with Sausage & Leeks).
For dinner, start with a beautiful salad of Roasted Cauliflower, Radicchio & Arugula or, just as delicious, Roasted Beets and Goat Cheese.Then it’s time to take inspiration from Lady and the Tramp with a bowl of pasta. But take it up a notch with lobster! Think luxurious with Capellini with Lobster & Caviar or homey with Lobster Mac & Cheese!
Have a delicious Valentine’s Day and a great weekend. Bon appétit!
