Let love speak volumes through your stunning, red cherry cooler.

How do you make it?
• Crush a few cherries in a jar, add water and some sugar syrup.
• Tear a few mint leaves and let their fresh fragrance infuse with the sweetness of the cherry syrup.
• Give it a good shake and put a muslin cloth on the mouth of the bottle so as to allow a clear scarlet liquid to flow through.
• Keep your love potion in the refrigerator to chill, and pop some cherries into the glasses when you serve.

2. The Warm-Up Appetizer:
Savour a delicious and healthy appetizer as you devour the colour of love.

How do you make it?
• Pickle cubes of beet in vinegar, olive oil and garlic for a few hours.

• Season with rosemary, salt and pepper and you have yourself a romantic appetizer just for the two of you.

3. The Candle-Light Dinner:
Add a little spice to your dinner table with a spicy yet fresh pasta dish

How do you make it?
• Bring your pasta to a boil, strain it and keep it aside.
• Stir in some olive oil, vinegar, crushed garlic, cut tomatoes and eggplant. Let them cook for a few minutes.
• Add rosemary and basil and let their fragrant fumes intoxicate the tomatoes and eggplant with flavor.
• Toss in the pasta and give it a good stir.
• Sprinkle in some oregano and salt for taste, top it off with red chilies, and you’re ready with a romantic dinner for two.

4. The Scrumptious Dessert:
