Valentine’s Day Menu

Valentine’s Day is a time to show that special someone in your life how much you care, and what expresses that more than a well planned, elegant dinner for two? It is suggested that if you are setting the mood for love, that you should keep the meal light, the portions small, and surround yourself with scented flowers and candlelight. I have created two complete menus for Valentine’s Day, one for those who prefer seafood, and another for those who would rather have meat. You can of course mix the courses, and have a little of each. This menu utilizes many foods said to have aphrodiasic powers, such as garlic, fennel, asparagus, chocolate, and shrimp to name just a few. So, set the mood, plan your dinner and tell the one you love, “Ti voglio bene”.
