Preparing a home-cooked meal is a great way to show someone you care. You can tell when a dish has been prepared with love, and time and effort has gone into every bite. That’s why food is so central on Valentine’s day, with romantic dinners taking centre stage.
You don’t want to overstretch yourself in the kitchen, so don’t choose a menu that’s going to keep you in the kitchen all night! Keep your starter and main simple, and make dessert your pièce de résistance.
Dessert can be very sensual, with tantalising flavours and spoon-licking textures that are perfect for sharing. This recipe for Chilli Chocolate Tart created by Le Cordon Bleu London's Master Chefs is ideal. With a rich indulgent chocolate and chilli ganache to fire up your tastebuds, and creamy Mascarpone and grapefruit Chantilly for balance, while keeping things zesty. Your Valentine is sure to go head over heels for this mouth-watering dish.
