Romantic recipes to make your special someone this Valentines day.

How about spoiling your loved one this year with a day filled with delightfully delicious recipes?  

Valentine’s Day is a controversial topic, many look at it as the day of love, some regard it as more of a marketing scheme to sell roses 10x the price they would normally cost. We here at Food Lovers see Valentine’s Day as a perfect opportunity to spoil your special someone with a home cooked meal followed by a delicious sweet treat. As we all know the way to a person’s heart goes through their stomach!  
 For this year’s day of romance, we’ve put together our favourite Valentine’s Recipes! Here is some inspiration for you:  
  • Spoil your loved one with a delicious stack of war buttermilk flapjacks for breakfast:

Remember, Valentine’s Day is all about SHARING the love. So why not start the day by making flapjacks together?
  • As a light lunch, how about making a yummy bacon wrapped cherry bruschetta with our delicious juicy cherries still being in season.  There is nothing better than the crunchy bite of fresh toasted garlic baguette with the sweet and salty combination of cherries and bacon in one bite.  If this recipe doesn’t scream Valentine’s lunch, then we don’t know what will!

Last but certainly not least a romantic Valentines Dinner cannot be missed!  
We’ve put together a delicious 3-course dinner menu for you to enjoy with your special someone.  
  • A romantic dinner should not be a heavy dinner. Therefore we went for a fresh watermelon, feta and herb salad as a starter.
