Valentine's Day Dinner

Newer Older

Valentine's Day Dinner was simple but spectacular, made up of some special treats:

Bread - Italian Feather Loaf, from James Beard's classic "Beard on Bread"

Wine - French table wine, Anjou-Villages Brissac, we purchased on a trip when we first started dating years ago

Mostarda di Fichi - fig mostarda brough back from Vinci, Italy

Miele con Frutta - honey with strawberry brought back from Ripatransone, Italy (bought from this guy)

Organic Olive Oil - brought back from Vinci, Italy

Cheese - a hard Italian cheese to go with the mostarda, and a blue veined Brie to go with the honey

Carmelized Walnuts - to go with everything

We were supposed to have fresh lemon-pepper angel hair with artichoke-lemon pesto, but we gorged ourselves on treats and didn't feel like we needed more. Being naughty and having no vegetables is the best part of Valentine's Day.
