Love match with food

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Valentine's Day -

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.
