Treat your Valentine this year!

We are fast approaching the most romantic time of year, Valentine’s Day, and if you have promised your loved one a perfect dinner for two, we want to help you pull it off!

You can’t start work without a tidy and organised kitchen. We recommend checking through your ingredients before you start to make sure you haven’t forgotten anything and, if you’re cooking more than one course, ensure you know the timings for each, so you know when they need to go in the oven! Don’t forget presentation - your meal is only as good as it looks so make an effort with your table display.

Finally, the food! We have come up with a few recipes for you to try, be it breakfast in bed or a special main course. They range in difficulty level so there should be something there for even the most hopeless cook to make this Valentine’s Day special without breaking the bank.

Breakfast in bed: Hearty Cinnamon French Toast

Dinners for two: Stuffed Chicken Breast, Moroccan Spiced Lamb Shanks, Salmon en croute

A sweet treat: Luxurious homemade Chocolate Truffles

Don’t let your oven ruin all your hard work though – burnt on fat and grease can ruin the taste of your meal and the smell will kill the romantic atmosphere you’ve created. There’s nothing more likely to extinguish the flames of love than the smell and smoke of a grimy oven wafting through the house!
