Great Dinner Date Dishes

It’s probably no secret that we like good grub here at Plenty More Towers. Who doesn’t, right? Food can be comforting, sensual, arousing and down right hot. A little bit like sex if you ask me. 😉 It’s no surprise really that going on dinner date regularly features at the top of people’s list of things to do with a date.

Anyhoo, back to this purpose of this post. So, you have been going out for a little while and things are sizzling between you? And now you want to add a bit more sugar ‘n spice to your date nights by tickling your sweetie’s taste buds with home cooked delights? You’ve come to the right place.

Now strap on that apron and whip out your whisks, ‘cause our favourite dinner date dishes are comin’ right up! Click the links below for the detailed recipes.

Starter

Roasted figs wrapped in Parma ham with blue cheese and rocket

This starter combines the sweetness of figs, saltiness of the ham, creaminess of the cheese and peppery kick of the rocket rather well. It will be like an explosions of flavours in your mouth. This dish is very easy to prepare and will definitely impress. If your date is a veggie, simply omit the ham and sprinkle some chopped walnuts over your figs instead. Oh, and be sure to check the cheese is suitable for vegetarians as well!

Main Course

Pork chops with apples and cider

Food and drink in one? Er, yes please! This sweet and scrumptious sticky glazed meal creates the perfect flavour combination! It’s the ideal dish for a colder summer’s evening and you can either cook it quickly on a high heat or cook it for hours on low. Either way – oink oink!

As a veggie alternative we’d recommend this scrummy golden Butternut Squash and Sage Risotto


Dessert

Lemon Mousse

This lush and lemony dessert is the perfect way to end your meal. Try serving them it individual ramekins or martini glasses. The best bit is that this recipe makes more lemon mousse than you will need for two people. But that’s a good thing, you may need some for afterwards. You know, for sustenance? 😉

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll have to go raid my fridge. Seriously starving now after all that food talk…

We hope you enjoyed today’s post and of course our menu suggestion. Have a great dinner date! Remember to send us your feedback! xxx
