romantic dinner ideas

Nothing says “I love you” like a thoughtfully romantic prepared meal! With Valentine’s Day almost upon us, we’ve come up with some fun activities that are perfect for sharing with the food lover in your life. Giving an experience, especially a food-based one, is great for two reasons. First, you aren’t creating waste with a product OR your wrapping and second, you are also giving your time, which is one of the most generous things you can give to someone.

We’ve come up with three simple food experiences that you can plan for the special person in your life. Whether it’s a friend, family member or partner, these ideas are each delicious, intimate and affordable.

1. Cook together

Instead of sharing a meal in a crowded restaurant, why not try cooking together? Embrace your culinary skills and learn a new recipe or two, then enjoy the fruits of your labour. Airbnb’s experiences include plenty of cooking classes that can be taken both online and in-person (think traditional pasta recipes with grandmas from Italy or mastering French desserts from a Parisian pastry chef). And websites like NYT cooking, Bon Appetite and Green Kitchen Stories are packed with inspiring recipes that promise something for everyone.

2. Plan a picnic at the Park

Take things al-fresco and get a breath of fresh air with a Valentine’s picnic in the park. Nothing beats a break from computer screens and the indoors like an outdoor gathering and picnics can offer a much-needed escape and headspace that will boost your spirits!

3. Take a gastronomic trip

Do you love nothing more than getting to know a place through its food? Then a food tour is going to be your dream come true! Imagine endless hours of not only sampling the best cusine in a city, but learning the many stories behind them. Gastronomic trips are wonderful experiences that food lovers can share that not only taste incredible but help to instil and even deeper value to gastronomy to you.
