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 downright 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 we’ve found for you online.
This starter combines the sweetness of figs, the 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!
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 recommend this scrummy golden Butternut Squash and Sage Risotto
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

“Mick and I have now been together for about 6 weeks and have just returned from our first holiday together. It was just a wink from me that made Mick look at my profile and see how we think alike. He would have never known but for that wink. After he winked back and we exchanged a couple of messages to each other we arranged our first date. As soon as we met I knew that there was a buzz between us and we held hands all night. Since we met and as we spend more and more time together we realise just how alike we truly are and how luck we have been to meet.”
