love stories

photo by Hannah Davidson

What makes a couple perfect? Do you think of the tragic love story of Romeo & Juliet, or perhaps the happily ever after Cinderella & Prince Charming? Chemistry differs with ideal partners-whether star-crossed lovers or kindred spirits, the bottom line is that they bring out the best in each other.

And this couldn’t be truer than in home cookery, where opposites attract: crisp, salty bacon with soft, mild farm-fresh eggs; sweet honey with the tannins of tea or a thinly sliced piece of prosciutto wrapped around a juicy sweet slice of cantaloupe.

There are also some culinary couples that just go together: Where would spaghetti be without meatballs, berries without their cream, or espresso without steamed milk?

Present a plated (or a mug) to a sweetheart today, enjoying a tradional rendition or creative interpretation, then let your self fall in love all over again.
