Valentine’s Day may be a day for lovers, but it’s also a day for food-lovers—after all, what could be more romantic than preparing a sumptuous feast for the object of your affection?

Valentine’s Day Dinner

Whoever St. Valentine truly was—a condemned Christian in pagan Rome who fell in love with his jailer’s daughter? an early 3rd-century priest who performed Christian marriages in defiance of Christian law?—he left us a wonderful legacy of romance and an enduring belief in true love. Celebrate yours with a special evening of savory treats, capped with a classic Souffle au Chocolat.
