Everyone knows how important food can be in any courtship rituals – and in Italy, this rule applies like no other!

Don’t worry, we’re not suggesting splashing out on a Michelin starred restaurant on February 14 – heaven forbid! No, a delicious Italian-inspired home-cooked romantic dinner for two in candlelight will be much more fun than formal dining and much classier than any take-away pizza and a box of chocs.

Start as you mean to go on. A caffeine-laden Doria After Dark Cocktail, sets the mood to excitement, and the coffee will ensure you keep going until the early hours.

While the dinner’s bubbling away and the wine is breathing, serve up a Doria Quick Bruschetta to keep hunger at bay as you add the finishing touches the main course.

Keep the red-blooded action for later and serve up a Butternut Squash and Sage Lasagne, made with Doria Amaretti, with a crisp side salad will go down a treat.

Don’t forget the sweet spot. A dollop of Limoncello and winter fruits trifle will provide the perfect end to a perfect dinner.

Light the fire, kick off your shoes and digest the romance – that’s amore!
