Recipes: The perfect Valentine’s meal at home


The best, sexiest Valentine celebration for two is at home where you can hear each other speak. The following menu is one of my favourites because everything is made ahead of time except for the cheese hearts, which can be assembled earlier and fried at the last minute. The best part is the fabulous dessert – so easy to make yet so incredibly tasty. It is my go-to foolproof dessert of the year.


Toasted cheese hearts

Spicy veal shanks

Chocolate cherry cream
