Cook Your Way To Their Heart This Valentine’s Day

7th February 2018

Getting a reservation at your favourite restaurant on Valentine’s Day can be quite stressful –  and that’s not to mention the strain it can have on your wallet! No need to fret, as we have another option for you: you can save yourself the hassle of a busy restaurant by cooking for your significant other at home this year. Nothing says ‘I love you’ better than a home cooked, three-course meal.

So, what’s on the menu?

We have you covered with these easy and delightful menu options. These recipes are super simple and quick to make, leaving you with plenty of quality time to spend with your partner. A late-night snack is also included for when you have settled in to watch your romantic movie… if you still have space after the meal, of course.

Even better, these recipes have an added benefit as they’re made using rapeseed oil, which contains less saturated fat than other commonly used cooking oils.

For now, dig into this delicious menu at home. Avoiding all that cheese at the restaurant may be your greatest Valentine’s Day idea ever – and we do not mean the cheese on the menu!

Tell us your favourite Valentine’s Day dish over on our Rapeseed Oil Benefits Facebook Page.
