Valentines Recipes From Around The Globe.
It's the 14th of February, which means its Valentines day. For weeks shops have stocked up on all things pink and red, the adorable teddy bears, the chocolate and the overpriced bunches of roses. As I spend another year single I realised my one true love, other than travel... FOOD! I'm an absolute foodie, and I grew up eating some amazing dishes; My dad trained as a chef in France in his late teens and my mum is an amazing baker and cake maker. Therefore, today I decided to combine my love of food with the day of love and put together some of my favourite recipes. Whether you absolutely love Valentines, or think its another excuse for shops to make money, I have compiled 5 recipes you will want to try this Valentines day.
