Romantic Valentine Desserts- Part 1

by Michele Pesula Kuegler | January 11th, 2012 | Restaurant News

Valentine’s Day is a marketing team’s dream come true.  What could be a simple day to exchange small tokens of love has evolved into the day in which one needs to purchase flowers, jewelry, and more.  While I don’t object to gift giving, my husband and I have created our own tradition for this holiday.   When our day of work and children winds down, we have a late, candlelit dinner for two.

Yes, this does sound amazingly similar to our regular Tapas Mondays, so in order to make this dinner special there are a couple tweaks.  First, we purchase an exceptional bottle of wine, a splurge that we wouldn’t buy for a weekly dinner.  Second, we plan a dessert to end the meal.

Valentine’s Day may be more than a month away, but it is never too early to start contemplating what dessert to make for your loved ones.  Over the next five weeks I will be sharing some fabulous recipes for dessert from a group of talented chefs.  This week we will begin the series with a recipe for Chocolate Godiva Cake.  For chocolate lovers, I am certain the name alone is delicious!
