A Romantic Dinner For Two

Series 169 · Episode 1

“Cooking for an intimate dinner for two takes a little planning — there are a few elements to consider. Firstly, the food should not need a great deal of last-minute preparing: it won’t be much fun or particularly romance-inducing for your partner (or prey) to have to sit alone at the table all night while you faff about in the kitchen! Secondly, the food can be rich, but don’t serve huge portions, unless you plan to fall into a heavy sleep as soon as you have finished eating. Thirdly, the food needs to look good to eat — as in, you need to look good eating it — so trying to chew your way through a huge sirloin steak might not be the most sensual thing! Fourthly, beware of too many herbs in the food — as we all know, parsley in the teeth is not a good look!”
