Dear all, Today I want to ask you what is your food of love?
We've all heard of the chocolate sauce and whipped cream. The strawberries and champange. But what else works for you?
For me, a really good wine--red or white--or even a good rose--works. But to make the day complete, I like a bit of sustenance with my wine. Especially since romance uses up some of those calories! And you need to replenish your energies, yes?
I'm going to suggest a few good additions, like a nice Spanish manchego with whole wheat crackers, grapes and sliced cucumbers (chilled). OR how about a French baguette, sliced, lightly brushed with a good olive oil and a clove (or what the heck, two cloves of garlic), toasted and served with a room temperature brie, a few slices of smoked salmon and a dash of capers.
Then there are the luscious possibilities that a good pinot noir opens up with huge garlic-stuffed olives and a small platter of sliced tomatoes with sliced mozzarella and fresh leaves (from your garden?) of basil, drizzled with olive oil, virgin, please.
Tell us what you love to serve your lover!
