Valentine’s recipes to say ‘I love you’

Whatever your relationship status, Valentine's Day can be pretty stressful. Do you buy flowers? A card? Chocolates? Go on a date? Cook a meal at home? Arrange a private Michael Bublé concert? Or boycott the whole thing and pretend it isn't happening?

Perhaps the most difficult of all is putting into words how you feel – so we've done the hard work for you and put together different ways of saying "I love you" with food. Because we all know the way to any person's heart is through food, right?

Don't go bacon my heart

Is there anything more romantic than breakfast in bed? Why not whip up an American pancake stack (just use a heart shaped cookie cutter to make a pile of hearts), top with bacon and maple syrup and say, "I'm b-egging you to be my Valentine. Just don't go bacon my heart."

You've taken a pizza my heart

Treat your loved one to a homemade thin crust artisanal style pizza, to let them know they've taken a pizza your heart. Scatter a few olives on top to say "olive you"!

You're pear-fect

Is your loved one the apple of your eye? Try this delicious apple and pear crumble recipe to show you're the perfect "pear".

I just called to satay I love you

Show your Valentine that you're pea-nuts for them with these delicious Asian-inspired skewers. They'd make a delicious starter, or they could be bulked out for a main. 

Cutie pie

Round off your romantic dinner with the pie-fect pud. This summer fruits pie topped with hearts will make you look like the berry best partner anyone could ask for. You could also serve it up in individual pie dishes.

Nothing Camparis to you

Put the kids to bed, then open up the bar and show off your mixology skills. This Campari, gin and lemonade concoction couldn't be easier to make, just make sure you get out the posh glasses!

I love you from my head to-ma-toes

These Mediterranean-inspired tarts are 'heart' to resist and can be made in no time at all - perfect if you're short on time but still want to deliver a feast for your favourite.

Stock up on everything you need, from steak to Prosecco, for a romantic Valentines night in online, or head to your local store.
