Starter- Oysters on the Half Shell with Mignonette Sauce

Kick off your evening with oysters, nature’s slippery little love tokens. Rich in zinc, they’re like sending a direct text message to your hormones saying, ‘It’s go time!’ Plus, trying to eat them gracefully is the first test of compatibility.

Main Course- Seared Scallops with Asparagus and Quinoa

Move on to seared scallops, because nothing says ‘I fancy you’ like bivalves. Paired with asparagus – the vegetable equivalent of a wink and a nudge thanks to all that vitamin E – and quinoa, because you need some complex carbs to fuel the marathon of love (or at least make it through the movie you pretended to want to watch).

Side Dish- Beetroot and Goat Cheese Salad

Then there’s the beetroot and goat cheese salad. Beets are nature’s way of saying ‘I heart you’ with their deep red color, and they’re full of boron, which is basically Cupid in mineral form. The goat cheese is just there to make the beets taste better and to add a little ‘tang’ to your ‘twang’.

Dessert- Dark Chocolate Fondue with Strawberries and Bananas

For dessert, dive into a dark chocolate fondue, because if chocolate were a dating app, it would be the one with the highest success rate. Dip strawberries and bananas in it, and suddenly you’re an artist, painting your canvas with flavours of love. Plus, feeding each other is the best test of trust since the ‘falling backward into your partner’s arms’ exercise.

Drinks- Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail

Wash it all down with a pomegranate champagne cocktail. Pomegranate juice is pretty much love potion #9, and mixed with champagne, it’s your ticket to saying ‘I love you’ without accidentally blurting out something weird instead.

Remember, the key to a successful aphrodisiac meal isn’t just in the eating; it’s in the laughter, the shared glances, and the occasional food fight that really sets the mood. So, this Valentine’s Day, dine in, laugh out loud, and let love (and a bit of quinoa) be your guide.
