Staying in this Valentine’s Day? We’ve pulled together some menu inspiration for the perfect dinner for two. Pick up a bottle or two from the new Wine Tour collection to go with your meal, or visit Margot, our Facebook Messenger chatbot, for advice on finding the right wine to match your menu.
Choose a starter that’s light, fresh and simple, especially if you’re planning a three-course meal. Our mozzarella bruschetta recipe is perfect; it’s full of fresh flavours and takes very little time to prepare. You could even toast the bread and slice the tomatoes ahead of time to save on time in the kitchen.
The main course
Do you plan on dazzling with your culinary skills or would you prefer something a little easier to execute? For those who fancy a challenge our homemade gnocchi recipe makes an impressive main, and we love our romantic beef Wellington dish. Alternatively, dress up a simple steak or piece of fish with some suitably special sides: try stir-fried kalettes, honey-glazed carrots or potato dauphinoise.
As with the starter, choose a Valentine’s Day dessert that requires very little hands on preparation – leaving you with more time to spend with your dinner guest! This creamy lemon posset recipe is quick and easy to make, and can sit in the fridge overnight until you are ready to serve. To make things even easier, round off the evening with one of our delicious desserts, or a box of luxurious chocolates with coffee.
