Valentine's Day Kitchenware Gifts
Whether you've been at home with your loved ones over the past year, or separated and living apart, Valentine's Day is an opportunity to show your favourite people how much you enjoy their cooking!
A Short History of Valentine's Day
There are a variety of stories or legends surrounding Valentine's Day and its origins, whether Pagan or Christian. One of the most well known is that of a Christian named Valentine who was imprisoned by the Romans and sent a love letter to a young girl, who was possibly the jailor's daughter who would visit him. The letter was sent before he was executed and signed From Your Valentine.
Many of the other stories revolve around un-requited love which have led to romantic legends and a popular day for showing love in our modern lives.
According to figures on Statista, £391 million was spent on Valentine's Day gifts in 2019, split over categories such as going out for dinner, clothing and chocolates.
Cooking Recipes for Valentine's Day
Going out for dinner doesn't look like an option in 2021, so why not make your own this year? As always, BBC Good Food delivers some great recipes, whether you like sweet or savoury recipes.
We've made the Hidden Heart recipe and it was delicious - a combination of a tasty yet simple sponge and a rich chocolate icing was very moorish! It's a little time consuming making the two sponges, but it looked great once done. The cut off sponge pieces didn't go to waste...
If the family are all at home together, how about choosing a recipe to make together?
