21 Date Night Recipes to Make Together

What could possibly go wrong? You are going to cook with a date you’d really like to get on with and impress with your cooking skills, but also be relaxed enough to chat about the finer things in life over a glass or two of your favourite tipple!

Well, let’s face it, this is a kind of make-or-break activity that will either fix your relationship or end in a polite text message. Cooking together can be either a demonstration of what may be future domestic bliss or a warning that your own temperamental ways and intimate dietary preferences do not match.

Modern dates require modern research methods, so it’s probably a great idea to first ask your date if they have any real food allergies or real culinary dislikes. This would be a straightforward end to a blossoming romance if you were to buy in a T-bone steak and, guess what, your fledgling partner is a vegetarian. Therefore, if you do your homework, this can be a fun way of getting to know someone.

If you feel it’s the perfect evening for talking and getting to know someone better, then stick to a simple dish. However, if you are more in the mood for an activity over an evening or quiet weekend, then go for it and aim high! It’s also a really great method of testing the water if you want to get serious, as the worst thing in the world is finding out that your new love eats all the types of meals you can’t stand!

A good mix of cooking, candlelight and a fine wine may add a lot to your love life, as long as after a few hours of preparation, you don’t end up burning the meal that could seal the deal!
