Written by: Famous Foods | 2019-02-10 | no comments

Cooking a romantic dinner at home for Valentine’s Day offers an intimate alternative to dining at a crowded restaurant in Vancouver. When you’re planning your holiday menu, you can rely on Famous Foods for fresh and premium ingredients. Use the following suggestions to develop a delicious dinner that you can share with a partner.

  1. Roasted Carrot Soup

Start your dinner with a seasonal recipe that uses winter vegetables. You’ll find the carrots, onions, and endive that you need for the recipe in the Famous Foods produce section. For your convenience, you can even start this soup the day before and add the finishing touches on Valentine’s Day.

  1. T-bone Steak Dinner

For the omnivores among us, steak dinners offer the ultimate dining experience. Luscious beef and a short preparation time increase the attractiveness of this recipe. Dry rub the meat with salt and ground dried porcini mushroom to create a gourmet feast, adding side dishes of fingerling potatoes and spinach salad. You can trust our store’s meat department to provide you with fresh and flavourful beef.

  1. Herb Crusted Salmon

Salmon presents a regal alternative to steak. This recipe for two salmon fillets with asparagus boasts a short preparation time and a happy marriage of herbs and fish. Dill always works marvellously with salmon. Visit Famous Foods for wild salmon, available seasonally fresh or frozen.

  1. Spaghetti and Meatballs

The holiday offers you a handy excuse for indulging in carbs. Fill your plate with your favourite pasta from our store shelves and swirl it around zesty beef and pork meatballs. Homemade meatballs require more preparation time than steak or salmon, but they are definitely more budget-friendly.

  1. Dark Chocolate Pudding Cakes

Finish your meal with the pleasures that only chocolate can deliver. This sumptuous dark chocolate pudding baked in ramekins creates perfectly sized servings. A hint of cinnamon adds to the complexity of its dark chocolate flavours. Famous Foods has the specialty chocolate necessary to make this titillating dish. Serve the dessert warm with vanilla ice cream melting on top.

Impress your loved one with the thoughtfulness and care that go into making a dinner for two. Fresh ingredients from Famous Foods will help you display your love.
