Single or coupled…I love a good Valentines celebration.
Want to know what gets people’s hearts racing when it comes to matters of love… or Valentines Day on the whole?
HelloFresh produced a really cool infographic on what aphrodisiacs you can choose for Valentine’s Day so you can forget oysters!
Oysters, strawberries and sweet treats may be what we traditionally associate as the food of love, but the British public are far more likely to opt for a juicy steak, roast dinner or spicy curry to get in the mood, according to new research from the number 1 recipe box in the UK, HelloFresh.
Over a third of British men and a quarter of women are planning a romantic night in with their partner this Valentine’s Day, as couples shun busy restaurants in favour of an intimate night alone. When it comes to the menu, the most popular dish to cook up on date night is a steak, with 35% of survey respondents saying that recreating the restaurant classic at home is the perfect recipe for a night of passion.
“At HelloFresh, we believe that food and love go hand-in-hand at any time of the year, so it’s no surprise that seven in ten people prefer being cooked for on a date night, rather than being taken out for dinner,” says Patrick Drake, Co-founder and Head Chef at HelloFresh. “When it comes to food to get you in the mood, forget fancy delicacies – it’s the good old British classics that are the clear winners.”
