Valentine’s Day is a celebrated holiday worldwide. In the Christian world, the 14th of February celebrates Saint Valentinus. However, there isn’t any special meaning to it. Saint Valentine of Rome was a third-century Roman saint commemorated on 14th of February and associated since the High Middle Ages with a tradition of courtly love.
Valentine’s Day itself has many understandings in the world. In most of the countries, especially in the Anglo-American world, they refer to the romance and love with this holiday. There are countries like Finland or Estonia, which relate the holiday to the Friend’s Day. In Latin America, people refer Valentine’s Day to the Day of Love and Friendship.
My Way of Celebrating Valentine
Beautiful dishes for Valentine
Let me give you a couple of tips for awesome dishes to make this day to shine. Start from the very morning and prepare a proper breakfast for your beloved.
Nex, decorate with some flowers and fix an easy dinner meal. All the main dishes are fast in preparation, yummy for the eye and rich in flavour. Let's start!
My family is all about waffles and pancakes. Therefore, I give you my latest edition of Smooth Ricotta Pancakes with Berry Marmalade and Homemade Peanut Butter.
As my favourite Julia Child says: "The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook."
Easy, fast and impressive: Sexy Rib Eye with Warm Potatoes.
If you fancy a fresh fish, I present you Almond Trout with Cranberries.
This year, my Valentine's rehearsal resembles simplicity, freshness and no waste of time. Luxurious combination of Seared Duck Breasts with Colourful Potatoes and purely vegetarian Gorgonzola and Red Grape Spaghetti.
I am not going to lie here. If you want to impress someone, you need the time to think it through, perhaps even few days earlier. However, it is totally worth it: Chocolate Love Tart with Cranberries and Truffles.
Eat, Love and enjoy Your Valentine,
