There are some ingredients that have inspired romance and passion since historic times. If you are planning on getting creative in the kitchen this Valentine's Day then make sure you include these three key components to guarantee a recipe for love.
Champagne Any place, any time – with love in the air Champagne is the perfect tipple! We love a chilled glass (or bottle) of Laurent-Perrier, a Champagne of great finesse and beautiful freshness.
Oysters Love them or loathe them, they are top of the list when it comes to romantic foods. Casanova himself is said to have devoured 50 a day for breakfast! Serve raw oysters on the half shell with plenty of lemon and a dash of Tabasco sauce.
Asparagus Known as the 'Valentine's Vegetable', asparagus is well -known aphrodisiac. British asparagus is filled with vitamins too so if there are any leftovers, enjoy the next day with eggs as the vegetable is said to help ease hangovers!
