Life Desk :
A nice meal isn't just about the food, it's about the atmosphere, the ambience and setting the scene. Whether it's for a special date or an anniversary, if you want to cook a romantic meal for the significant other, then read our useful tips that will save you time and effort.
Tip 1: Pick a simple recipe - Getting adventurous in the kitchen is great fun, but generally the more adventurous you get the more likely things will go wrong. Unless you are something of a culinary whiz, finding a nice and simple but effective recipe should be your first priority. Finding the right recipe-something that's not only good to look at but also achievable-could be the difference between success and a big mess. Remember, you will have plenty of reason to be nervous about on a first date, so you want one worry to be out of the way.
Tip 2: Surprise her/him - Nice obvious tip, but could take a little foresight. Why not ask your date to pick you up and say that you have booked a restaurant. Then when he/she arrives, reveal the surprise. The surprise will instantly break the ice and who doesn't love a surprise anyway?
Tip 3: Have a trial - All recipes go better if you know and understand the process. At the least you should read it through in detail and learn it. Better still though, actually try to cook it for yourself beforehand - you are bound to make a couple of mistakes, and they are better learned now than on your date night.
Tip 4: Clean and tidy - The downside to cooking is that it leaves you with a lot of mess. Plan well and make sure you have time to tidy up the place, as you cook. There is nothing worse than enjoying a romantic meal and then remembering just how much dish-washing there is to be done. A tidy clean house and kitchen will help make the meal that much more enjoyable.
Tip 5: Those extra bits - Don't forget about starters and desserts. You can buy something in if you want, but then again, you can probably find a simple snack recipe to start.
