“Bienenstich Cake! A beautifully traditional German cake, made of love, brioche and the subtle sweetness of honey! I choose it as I’ve just made it myself and is delectable to the touch!”
Jackson Tait

“Beef Wellington please. The different textures and flavours makes one helluva sexy dish! ”
Heather Hopley

“Paella… real Paella with Bomba rice, real stock, fresh seafood, saffron, fresh herbs & spices. Nothing can replace memories of dining outdoors in the summertime, with a group of friends (or date) a glass of white wine, under hanging patio lights. Having scents of paprika, garlic, mussels in wine & fresh bread engulf you whilst you await your dinner definitely builds anticipation. Despite what movies tell you, valentine’s day shouldn’t be about expensive gifts. Paella is a peasant’s dish, but I am sure many people can share memories about how it bought them together…even if its just for a gossip. ”

“Sticky date pudding made in the Panasonic convection oven would be perfect because it is my husband's favourite dessert.”
Kate Slack

“HEART-SHAPED BEEF WELLINGTON! Tender, juicy beef wrapped in puff's the perfect start to a romantic evening. And the heart shape for added degree of difficulty, demonstrating commitment and love. This is the jaw-dropping show-stopper to make everyone Insta-jealous!!”
Andrew L

“Spaghetti and Meatballs. Love the idea of slurping away like lady and the tramp and meeting in the middle for a romantic kiss with my valentine.”
Craig Brown

“Pancakes shaped like hearts! It's cute, easy to make and can be served as breakfast in bed :D”
Dustin Kerr

“Bombe Alaska, as it was the dish that I had with my parter on our first date together on Valentine's Day.”
Luke Plummer

“My husband and I met on holidays in Alaska back in 2007. Every Valentine’s Day we always make a celebratory meal that reminds us of the last frontier! Given we met on a fishing charter, it’s usually seafood. For mains our favourite dish is honey lime garlic butter salmon. Caramelised on the outside and falling apart tender on the inside. For dessert, it has to be baked Alaska! We both love ice cream cake but the meringue adds another dimension.”
Michelle Latham

“A Baked Manhattan cheesecake, topped with a decadent white chocolate mouse, topped with luscious whole Strawberries......visually it screams romance, and I want to see if your take on it is as good as mine :) ”
