We don't normally make a big deal of these Hallmark holidays, but hey why not this year! So what is a good menu for the occassion to prepare for my lovely wife? Guidelines would be that there are only a few smaller dishes, each simple with strong depth of flavor or that let a base food shine through. What is in season now that would be perfectly ripe? And something chocolate for dessert! What about a wine pairing?
I would like this meal to be elegant in its simplicty and artful presentation and not too filling. My wife should think to herself with a smile of satisfaction on her face, "I think I'll stick around for another hundred years." Thanks folks!
