The ultimate romantic Valentine’s Day menu

Something to nibble on…

Sip on a glass of something bubbly while you munch through these crispy ascolana olives in a cheesy breadcrumb coating. Your special someone (and these olives) are worth the extra 20 minutes of effort.

To start…

Fire up your tastebuds with our garlic and sherry clams, which make for the perfect romantic starter and cook in just 20 mins. A slug of sherry, lick of olive oil and handful of parsley are all that’s needed for this most romantic of seafoods.

Starter for two: garlic and sherry clams


The main event…

Opt for something different to the classic steak with our equally indulgent truffle and mushroom tagliatelle with burrata. There’s nothing like a grating of truffle to show you really mean business. And this recipe is bound to have your guest’s heart a-flutter. Serve on a platter topped with the burrata, olive oil and a sprinkling of parmesan – we think you’ll be soaking up a round of applause.

And for dessert…

Send your funny valentine all gooey inside with these molten-caramel lava puddings. They can be made ahead and will only take you 10 minutes to prepare. Their melted salted caramel Lindor centre is the perfect way to end a romantic meal.
