It’s February 9th so if you haven’t planned your special day for your Valentine, you’d better get to it. In fact, the 14th is the second busiest day of the year for restaurants. Many people think of Valentine’s day as all pink hearts and teddy bears, but perhaps that old adage has the best answer, 'the way to the heart is through the stomach'.
The relationship that food has with all holidays is also found in this Cupid-centric, couples day. How do you show someone you care about them and enjoy their company? Make them breakfast in bed, go out for a brunch for just the two of you to share, or take them out to a candle-lit dinner to spend some quality time together. What is it about food that it can strengthen relationships or spark passionate discussions? When we eat somewhere amazing or terrible, we can’t help but share that information with everyone we know. Food makes our day better, it makes us feel good, it can even shape our conversations.
What do you have planned for next week?
