We've brought together our best cocktail, starter, main and dessert recipes for you to choose from, so you can ensure you've covered every base and your valentine is blown away by the work you've put in. Little will they know, however, that most of our recipes look stunning but are super easy to put together, which will give you more time to yourself to make sure you're looking your best for your date!
Why not start the evening with a cocktail - it will definitely set the tone for your special evening, and although it's a lot easier to simply open a bottle of wine or fizz, your partner will appreciate the effort you've gone to, to make the evening extra special.
Follow up your cocktail with an irresistible starter, and when it comes to the main course, anyone would be blown away by these fillet steaks with blue cheese butter and bubble and squeak cakes
(pictured). You can prepare most of this dish in advance so you just need to cook the steak and bubble and squeak right before serving, but this only takes a matter of minutes so you won't be stuck in the kitchen all evening. The tender, juicy steak is perfectly complimented by the blue cheese butter and the bubble and squeak absorbs some of the juice, which will add a wonderful depth of flavour. You can buy the steaks at a fraction of the price of what you would pay for this same dish in a restaurant, and it's just as tasty.
