And now for the tasty bit! We've made ourselves very hungry whilst sourcing some delicious, Valentines-appropriate recipes (you can't say we're not good to you). Below are some of our favourites:
Need we say more? Clue's in the name! One layer would make us swoon, but 3?! Wow, brownie (or cake) points for you! Passion Cake recipe here.
For lighter, sweet treats, what about these delectable gems? Nothing says "I love you" like heart-shaped edibles. Queen of Hearts Tarts recipe here.
We were so distracted by our sweet-tooth, we almost forgot you can actually cook something savoury to eat before the sugary stuff! After looking at many-a-pie, we decided to share this one, it's a little lighter than a rich red-meat pie, so you can indulge in other courses! Chicken Pot Pie recipe here.
I think it's time to toast to the lovebirds (especially the chef)! Raspberry Thyme Tom Collins recipe here.
Let's not forget serving it all up. Set the mood and add those extra touches to the table-setting, if a job's worth doing, it's worth doing well! And you've already made all that effort, it would be a shame to pop it on a paper plate...
