Much like New Years Eve, Valentine’s Day is one of those nights that can fall massively short of expectations when you decide to go out. Pre-fixed menus tend to be overpriced and often carelessly prepared, and who wants to spend their special day eating crummy expensive food in an crowded noisy restaurant? Not me. Jeff and I have made a tradition out of staying in and cooking for each other for the last few years. We love to go all out spoiling each other and spend many weeks anticipating the dinner. Jeff even prints out a beautiful menu for our Valentines each year. I love this tradition so much that I’ve become pretty obsessed with Valentines Day and I am SO excited to celebrate it this week.
We decided this year we wanted to do a movie theme for Valentine’s Day. I love designing menus for special occasions so I thought for this Valentine’s Day I would share with you three of our favorite Valentine’s movies and three menu pairing suggestions for each film. This is singles friendly suggestion by the way, delicious food and sexy movies are highly enjoyable with or without a significant other! Just invite a hungry friend.
