From the sun-drenched island of Sicily to the incredible sights to behold in cities like Venice and Florence, Italy is a country brimming with love, romance and – most importantly – amazing food and drink. If you can’t surprise your significant other with a quick holiday, then bring a taste of Italy to your own home. At the very least, you get to show off your culinary prowess.
This menu features some of our most romantic recipes, all of which are easy to create and take little time to prepare. The most important thing you can do is spend time sourcing the very best ingredients you can afford – the simplicity of the recipes allows the produce to shine through, and something from the refrigerated isle of a supermarket will pale in comparison to a fresher, higher quality version from a specialist delicatessen. So let the wine breathe, light some candles and get ready to whip up the most romantic meal of your life.
