There is something profound about a date night cooking & preparing food with your lover.
It is an experience that encompasses the full gamut of your senses:
- The fragrance & freshness of your ingredients awakens your sense of smell.
- The kinaesthetic experience of your mise en place, preparing & placing your ingredients & tools gets you right into your body.
- Taste as you go, the individual ingredients, and at each stage of cooking, it will not only make you a better cook, but it will stimulate your taste buds and get your mouth watering.
- The sounds of the sizzling, and the easy banter of a kitchen, combined with the words you share, create a sonic atmosphere that is light and fun.
- And finally, the visual elements; the final plating is aesthetically beautiful. AND the sight of your lover smiling in the kitchen with you is the cherry on top!
