If there’s ever an occasion to prepare a three-course extravaganza for your significant other, first date or family, it’s a no-brainer that Valentine’s Day is the time. So, set the placemats, light a couple of candles and bring a spot of Californian sunshine to that cold Wednesday evening.
To start: Walnut, Goats’ Cheese & Beetroot Carpaccio
Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a delicious plate of golden and purple beetroot, rich goats’ cheese and creamy California walnuts. This starter is tasty, light and the perfect entrée to get the evening off to a flying start. Pair with a sweet white wine and tuck in!
Main course: Pomegranate-Glazed Chicken with Walnut Couscous
Deliciously filling without being too heavy, the marriage of irresistible flavours including pomegranate, parsley and garlic will have you serving a main course fit for kings. It really does taste as good as it looks. There’s even a helping of fresh mint, so don’t feel pressured to leave the garlic out of this one…
Dessert: Chocolate Walnut Cookies
Serve a couple of these decadent cookies with a generous helping of whipped cream and a glass of Prosecco, and you’ve got yourself a V-Day pudding that will have your guest locking in date number two. It may be cold outside, but these irresistible cookies will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy.
