Eating in is the new dining out! La Belle Assiette offers the perfect date this Valentine’s Day!

19 Jan, 2016

The most romantic day of the year is approaching. Those of you who are very much in love are trying to make it special and memorable and this always involves food and of course, wine.

With restaurants getting so busy, reservations are hard to make and tension is rising. How about trying something different this year? Away from the crowds, in the cosy atmosphere of your own home, but with no hassle of shopping, cooking (especially if you are not exactly hands-on in the kitchen!) and cleaning up?

La Belle Assiette’s professional chefs offer you the perfect alternative to packed restaurant rooms without jeopardising the restaurant quality dining experience. With an excellent choice of special Valentine Day’s menus collection to cater for every taste, it is easy to arrange a perfect meal with with your loved one whether you like seafood, are a meat lover or a vegetarian.

Italy is one of the most romantic countries in the world, so why not to choose this Venetian St Valentine’s menu, for example, created by chef Gio Renzo Fioraso?

Aperitif and Appetiser

Starting with an aperitif cocktail of traditional Negroni (gin, campari and red vermouth), have an appetiser of slow-cooked wild boar cheeks with vegetables, accompanied by a glass of elegant Loacker South Tyrol Gran Lareyn with aromas of black fruit and vegetal undertones or refreshing and easy to drink Luna del Rospo Barbera.

Starter

Slowly move to a starter of handmade “Tortelloni” with Pecorino cheese and honey, served with Grana Padano cheese sauce and open a bottle of complex full-bodied Brunello di Montalcino or its little Sangiovese-based brother, charming and full of flavour Falco Rosso IGT Toscana. Both by Loacker Corte Pavone.

Main Course

A main course of beef fillet mignon, grilled asparagus, cherry tomatoes with roquefort and green peppercorn sauce would go well with a glass of Piedmontese delicate and velvety organic Barbaresco by Punset or Sicilian spicy and herbal Koros Red (65% Nero d’Avola, 35% Syrah) by Tenuta la Favola.

Dessert

And finally, why not to complete this perfect meal with a delicate and delicious handmade mille-feuille with fresh crema pasticcera, chocolate and blackberries cream and a glass of champagne to toast Saint Valentine!
