With Valentine’s Day coming up, and the anniversary of the day my fiance asked me to marry him (9th Feb), I’ve been thinking a lot about how to do something special for the two of us.
One of the things we love to do as a couple is eat. We’re big fans of going out to eat and I really enjoy trying out new restaurants, but as we’re saving up for our wedding we haven’t been doing much of that recently. We’re more of a staying-in couple right now!
Then I found the Date Night Cookbook by Rebecca Warbis, a new book full of ideas for cooking delicious meals perfect for date nights at home.
The Date Night Cookbook is a stunning book, full of beautiful chic photography and recipes for mouthwatering meals. The recipes are divided up by theme ideas for your date night, for example, a Movie Marathon night, Afternoon Tea, Dining in Paris (this is definitely my favourite) and Breakfast in Bed which has some yummy breakfast ideas for one of those let’s-stay-in-bed-all-morning days.
The ideas are lovely and would be perfectly suited for couples, friends and family members.
As you can see in the photos there’s room to write notes about every section, so if your Afternoon Tea date went very well, you can make a note of it and keep that trick in mind the next time you want to woo someone with your creative culinary ideas.
As we’re all usually watching the pennies, DIY dating is the way to go. I love the idea of the All Dressed Up, Nowhere to Go date; who says you have to go out to get dressed up and have a slap up meal? I’m sure my partner would be thrilled if I made him anything from this book, now I just have to decide which theme to treat my partner with this Valentine’s Day.
The Date Night Cookbook (£9.99) is out 14th February 2016 and is available from Summersdale Publishers.
