It's too late to book a table at your favorite restaurant, fortunately dinner at home can be more relaxed and romantic anyway. If yesterday's post inspired you to create your own Valentine's Day feast, we have some suggestions for you based on past posts.

Whether you are dining with your loved one or throwing an impromptu dinner party for 4, fondue makes for a fun and intimate meal. This time of year a pot of bubbling cheese is not only delicious but hearty and comforting too. Stephanie's recipe for fondue is a winner.

There's something decidedly sexy about seafood. It's the briny taste of the ocean, the delicacy and sweetness. Don't let me get all porno, just make your beloved a plate of Seared Scallops & Celeriac Salad Salad in an Orange-Mustard Dressing, one of Laura's classic recipes.

For me, caviar is precious and perfect for a dinner for two. It's too pricey to buy a lot. At New World Market you can buy caviar and homemade blini. That's what I plan on doing!

For something French and fabulous, but with everyday ingredients you probably have on hand, crepes fit the bill. Shuna provides a sweet crepe recipe that will impress your date.


What's Valentine's Day without chocolate? I have no idea. But it's probably not worth celebrating. Just in time for the holiday Charles Chocolates has opened up a retail store, it's the only place to find the entire line of chocolates and is located at 6529 Hollis St. between 65th and 66th Streets, the store is open from 11:00AM until 7:00PM seven days a week. Read about a visit behind-the-scenes at Charles Chocolates or read an interview with chocolatier Chuck Siegel.

Happy Valentine's Day!
