While dinner and a movie are fine for a typical Friday night, Valentine’s Day should be different–a cut above. I am not saying that this can only be done on just Valentine’s Day, but on her birthday or even a really special day for you both (But for the sake of it, I will stick to the former). Looking back over the years, the dates that stand out in my memory or if I ask anyone, in theirs too, are the ones that prompted good conversation, created memorable experiences, and were filled with the unexpected. So this year skip the crowded restaurants and take your sweetheart for a trip around the world with an at home dinner date.
What’s that you say? Don’t have the dough to whisk your lady from Rome to Timbuktu? Then give her a global experience via “stovetop travel.” By whipping up a meal that includes a dish from each of the world’s continents, you can give your special someone a charming dose of both culture and amore without ever leaving the kitchen. No jet lag either!
The following dishes from around the world taste fantastic and are simple to prepare. Whether you make part or all of this sampler-style menu, you’ll have plenty to talk about and create tons of romance as you rub elbows in the kitchen. Staying in this Valentine’s Day could just be the best trip you’ve ever been on.
Let’s get continent-hopping.
