Valentine’s Day is a time to get cozy with your loved one and express your amorous side. Or it’s a time to eat copious amounts of chocolate and have a horror movie marathon. However you choose to celebrate, Valentine’s Day is a good opportunity to get adventurous… in the kitchen! Our tips will help you plan a meal you’ll love. COOKING WITH CHEMISTRY Branching out to try new tastes and cooking techniques pushes you and your sous chef out of your pizza-and-pasta comfort zone, strengthening your bond with a delicious result! Choose recipes that will challenge both of the chefs in the kitchen and don’t rush through the creation of your meal. Taking time to enjoy the process (perhaps with a cocktail or two) builds anticipation for the meal itself, and gives you an appreciation for the effort you’ve put into the meal. For Valentine’s Day, look for recipes that will add spice to your meal, and to your night! Whip up a spread using ingredients that will boost dopamine levels such as chocolate, blueberries, pistachios and seafood. See our recipe for Sinful Chocolate Pistachio Cake for a delectable dessert option. Cooking together builds trust, problem solving skills, and teamwork. Rather than splitting up the meal to produce separately, create each step together. For example, while one chef is peeling vegetables, the other can cut them. As you trim the meat, your partner can season it before putting it on the grill. Don’t forget to set a playlist to listen to while you cook. Music is the easiest way to set the mood, whether it is with Vivaldi or Johnny Cash!
