The Twenty10 Valentine's Day Menu

The Cooker has a special lady in his life (sorry other non-special ladies).  Romance is not the strong suit of the Cooker so he normally tries to use the one thing that he does well to make this special lady feel especially special on this special day.  That said here is the menu that was created for this year's Valentine's Day dinner.

Roasted Apple Mini Waffles topped with Roasted Fennel, Caramelized Onions, Brie and Port Reduction

Cranberry Bean Soup garnished with Gremlinlata

Roasted Pear, Fennel, Caramelized Onion and Manchego Raviolis with Tarragon and Walnuts

Veggie Sliders with Romesco Ketchup and Caramelized Onions

Tender Greens Salad with Port Reduction Viniagrette

Port Reduction Ice Cream with Pear Tarte Tatin

If you would like any or all of these recipes feel free to drop a line.  Otherwise just close your eyes and imagine what that must taste like in your tum tum.


  1. These all sound really intimidating! Their names are like sentences! I want to try a couple, though. May I have the recipes for the Cranberry Bean Soup and the Roasted Apple Mini Waffles?

  2. Darby, ask and you shall receive. They are both actually very easy. I will try and get some full posts up this week with the asked for recipes.

    Anonymous, taking pictures of food kinda ruins the mood on valentine's Day. However, the posts will be choked full of pictures to satisfy your eyes.
