Cooking Together For Valentine’s Day 2021

Cooking together as a couple is always a great idea. Not just because it’s fun, but also for its countless benefits. Here we share why you definitely want to try it if to strengthen your relationship and enjoy romantic quality time together.

Cooking together to bond

It is widely known that cooking with your loved ones will help you bond with them. Just like we said in our previous post, 3 ideas to ignite passion and romance through food this Valentine’s Day, studies show that cooking for and with your partner brings you closer together, it helps you connect, engage and have more confidence in each other.

Health benefits

Date night! A cooking together date is a better idea than eating somewhere else or ordering take-out all the time. Why? Because when you make your own food you are aware of the process, ingredients and condiments you’re adding to your meal. In other words, you know exactly what’s in it.

When you go to a restaurant, we like to call it “The Theatre Experience”. It is a special occasion that you enjoy like you would be going to the theatre. A healthy balance to life.

Fun during COVID

COVID has changed a lot of things for us, especially when it comes to date nights. But who says you can’t have fun at home? You can, but it’s really up to you. There are countless date ideas but we believe cooking together date ideas are definitely the best ones. It’s not an expensive plan, so if your budget is tight you don’t have to worry.

You can do an infinite number of recipes with the ingredients you have in your pantry, you just have to be creative. You could also have double dates with other couples you and your partner are friends with. And all from the comfort of your home by cooking together on Zoom with our cooking classes online.

You could join the private classes where we adapt the class to you or join one of our group classes like Valentine’s Day – Mediterranean By the Sea or our monthly Pasta Making Social that includes a fun social aspect for everyone. We also offer a Flavours of the World cooking class with a different country every month. Try something new with flavours from around the world with a Mediterranean twist.

Travelling in your home

Traveling and exploring new places with your partner is another great way to bond and connect with them. Learn about new cultures and enjoy new experiences together. A great way to get to know a new culture is definitely by tasting their food. Enjoying a traditional dish from another country, it’ll be like a taste of its culture without having to leave your home!

However, if you need a little help with that, we have the answer. Join to our International Dinner Club, where we bring people together and the world to your plate. You get to enjoy international culinary recipes with wine and juice pairings designed by world-renowned Chef Dario Tomaselli and Rich Life Strategist Anita Heidema.
