We Inspire…Valentine’s Day

Wondering what to prepare for your loved one this February 14th? Well worry no longer as Inspire Food has got some excellent ideas to make your Valentine’s Day extra special.

Of course, the perfect start to any romantic day has to be breakfast in bed! It’s a special occasion so feel free to make something a little more decadent than usual; American-style pancakes with maple syrup, waffles, and eggs Benedict are all worthy contenders!

Hopefully you’ll have the day off and you can enjoy breakfast in bed. Then when it’s time to arise around lunchtime, you can prepare something that will blow your partner’s socks off.

The important thing to remember is that your evening meal is going to be a big one, so you’re all right to go for something a little lighter for lunch. It can be something as simple as heart-shaped sandwiches or a lovingly crafted salad—you can get really creative with this meal. If the Great British weather permits, a lovely idea is to take a picnic out to your favourite park and enjoy the views with a packed lunch.

Now onto the main event! You have two choices here; either make their favourite dish of all time (sure to bag you some brownie points), or prepare a meal that’s seriously out of the ordinary. Indian-infused chicken is sure to cause some heat between the two of you, or a lovingly-crafted steak will always go down a treat.

On to dessert, which can be a real deal breaker, and I have just one word of advice for you—chocolate! More often than not, a pudding that makes the most of chocolate will go down a treat, so prepare your best chocolate tart and cheesecake recipes early!
