Love match with food
There’s an old saying that ‘the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’.
But perhaps a more profound version should be: ‘the best way to a good relationship is to share a good meal’.
If you stand back for a moment and consider what we often do to establish, consolidate or celebrate loving partnerships, it often involves intimate conversation over food and drinks.
It is a curious thing, but the thought of going out for a romantic lunch or dinner gets many couples all gooey and enthusiastic.
The idea of shouting yourselves to a high-quality meal that, critically, is cooked, prepared and presented by someone else to a high standard, has enormous appeal.
Throw in a few dimmed lights, the indulgence of sipping drinks from ridiculous glassware and even some soft background music and the picture is complete.
Yes you blokes, regardless of what you might quietly argue, it is vastly different from having a pie on a park bench during a lunch break.
This Valentine’s Day The Weekly Advertiser encourages couples to make the most of the many fine eateries the Wimmera, Mallee and Grampians has to offer.
