GET SET FOR LOVE
Love and food are inextricably linked, as both involve the same senses – taste, touch, smell and sight.
A romantic meal should be a highlight of the Valentine evening, although an intimate
breakfast could be a great way to start the day.
Create your own sensual occasion with a pretty table setting.
‘Less is more’ is the rule here – so limit yourself to just a few nods to the hearts and roses theme, and it’ll be tasteful rather than tacky.
A centrepiece bowl of flowers, hearts table scatter, soft candlelight and a romantic note on a plate, may be all the ingredients you need.
