Valentine Recipes for this beautiful day, the celebration of Saint Valentine, is almost upon us. Every year on the 14th of February, it’s time to show your loved one your affection. Reportedly, this day is to commemorate Saint Valentine, the 3rd century Roman priest whose life is clouded in mystery.
A famous legend says he cured a young girl of her blindness. On the day of his execution he sent her a card with the words: “From your Valentine.” Just by touching the card, the girl regained her vision. Later on, in the 14th Century, Geoffrey Chaucer romanticised this legend and the foundations for the modern Valentine’s day were laid.
