Recipes for a Romantic Dinner
Valentine’s Day is a time of year to celebrate relationships and love. The holiday’s history is an interesting one; two saints named Valentine became martyrs for their heroic acts. One would perform illegal marriages while the other would preach Christianity during the Roman Empire’s rule.
The reason it is celebrated on February 14 is because it comes from a Roman holiday that was celebrated every year to honor the goddess of marriage, Juno. The Romans honored her with a feast to celebrate health and fertility.
The theme of love and food has carried on ever since, but now we celebrate Valentine’s Day with chocolate, flowers, and time spent with our significant others.
There is no better way to show someone how much you care about them than with a romantic, candlelit dinner with delicious food. After all, the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach.
To help you prepare for an unforgettable kosher date night, we pulled some recipes you should try that will not only fill your stomach, but your heart too.
