Valentine’s Day originated as the worldwide celebration of love. St. Valentine is a well-known ancient Christian figure around the world who was martyred on February 14. The Feast of St. Valentine was enacted on February 14 annually to celebrate his life. In present times, Valentine’s Day in the United States is known as one of the top commercial retail days of the year. Chocolates, candy, fresh flowers and greeting cards are widely purchased by lovers for their loved ones. And for the foodies, special meals celebrate this great day — I hope you enjoy preparing and consuming my multi-course Valentine’s Day Date Night Menu.

Enjoy!!

Add my favorite Veuve Clicquot Pink Champagne or your favorite pink bubbly to serve with dinner. A nice pink rose wine is also a great choice.
