For the love of food: Valentine’s Day

For anyone who has been in love, is in love or has witnessed love, there is no arguing that there is a strong connection between food and romance. Going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day is a commitment, we can all agree on that. You have to plan it for weeks, if not months in advance. Overpriced menus leave you with very little choice of what to order. We’ve all gone through that process before – entrees, fancy mains and delicate cakes for dessert. But in the end, it doesn’t always feel worth it, especially when you can have something just as impressive at home. To us at My Foodie Box delivery service Perth, the best Valentine’s Day night is quiet and spent in the kitchen, with pans still warm on the stove and a delicious homemade meal on the table. There’s something about knowing that someone has taken time out of their busy day to make something just for you and better yet, they know exactly what you like! Is it going to be better than a 3-course restaurant dinner? Absolutely! Because in the end, it really is the thought and effort that counts. Not sure what to cook? Don’t worry, we can help! My Foodie Box meal-kit delivery service is proudly Perth owned and operated. We’re committed to providing the best WA produce, preservative and hormone-free meats and sustainably sourced seafood from suppliers we trust, delivered straight to your doorstep. Here’s 3 delicious Valentine’s Day recipes to help you on that special day.
