They say "the way to the heart is through the stomach". Preparing and sharing delicious food is a powerful and effective way to connect with someone emotionally. As we head to the weekend right before Valentine's Day (which falls on Wednesday, a working day. Bummer!), having a cozy date with your beloved is a wonderful way to keep the sparks afire.
Planning a romantic Valentine's weekend date involves not only thoughtful activities but also delightful meals.
Here are some ways to win someone's heart through their stomach:
Homemade Italian dinner
Cliches are good. Cliches are classic. Sometimes, even the overused, most cliché ideas can work wonders. Let us face it – most symbols of V-Day are cliché. So there is nothing wrong with going for a typical Italian dinner cooked with love to set the table.
Prepare a romantic Italian dinner with dishes like homemade pasta, a rich tomato sauce, and a classic Tiramisu for dessert. Add some candles and soft music for an intimate atmosphere.
A love like melted chocolate
Chocolate dishes can add a touch of romance and indulgence to your Valentine's Day celebration. Customize them based on your and your partner's preferences for an extra special treat.
Wine n dine
You know what goes best with chocolate? Wine! Pair different varieties of dark chocolate with red wine for a sophisticated tasting experience. The combination of rich chocolate and bold wine can be both indulgent and romantic.
In case you want a vegetarian option, try out this fun and yummy 'veg-kebab' recipe. They are easy to plate and present. Having a side salad and some dipping sauces could easily take the dish to the next level.
Movie night special
If you want to make it low-key, opt for a comfy-pajama movie night. What is a better snack than regular popcorn while watching movies? Crispy caramel popcorn! Here is how to make it.
