It was known throughout time that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, if I may add, that works the same way for women, too. One of the sweetest efforts you can do for the love of your life is to make a romantic dinner for two.
No need to be a gourmet cook to do this. A simple and delicious home cooked meal can work well for you or you can ask a reputable gourmet food source.
Consider these tips when planning a romantic home cooked meal.
It is very important that the ingredients should be the best inits class. You can make a simple roast chicken, but get the freshest you can find. The salad should be fresh and the sauce made from the best extra virgin olive oil available. Vegetables should be fresh, organic, and cooked to tender perfection. Make sure you buy a bottle of wine. It need not be expensive, but you have to complement the meal. Ask your local wine merchant what best suits the food and beverage budget.
Do not forget the dessert. Whether it's a pie or a cake, if you can not do it yourself, buy from the best bakery in town. Almost all cities have shops where you can buy good food, so there is no excuse for not serving a delicious and beautifully presented meal.
Use a nice fabric for your tablecloth and prepare a creative tablescape. Have a theme or motif, such as red or white, garden theme, Japanese, safari, or whatever, it's up to you. Be creative and work with what you have. Bring out your best china and cutlery. It is time to use them.
If you both wish, you may end the meal with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and cake.
