You know how much of a date night advocate I am. So, I invited Rose from Gimmy Tasty on to share with us her top tips on how to have a perfect date night in the kitchen. She’s got some great ideas.
Here’s what she has to say-
Couples should always dedicate a special time for bonding. Despite the erratic tides of schedules and the presence of other mundane activities in life, creating a space for you and your beloved is still necessary.
But there is no need for you to make these romantic dates to be extravagant. Even a fine dinner in your own kitchen can become a moment worth cherishing for. Of course, it will take some simple preparations to make this wonderful night to happen. Don’t worry if you are still clueless about what to do. I am going to teach you the ropes of how to have a magical date night in the kitchen!
Choosing the Right Recipe
If you are a pretty skilled cook, making any recipes should be a piece of cake for you. But this time, you should not just instantly dive into any cuisine that comes into your mind. You always have to mind your partner. Does he/ she have any allergies? Is he/ she a vegetarian? These are some of the necessary questions that you must answer. Otherwise, you might end up making a food that your partner might detest. And that could ruin the perfect date night!
The element of surprise can be a good thing. But if you are pretty unsure of the flavor preferences of your better half, then just communicate. In this way, you can prevent disasters from happening.
Preparing the Recipe
Now that you know what to cook, it is time to head in the market. Strictly pick the fresh ingredients only. This would allow your cuisine to exhibit the finest appearance and taste. Of course, your partner would be happy to dine in such kind of lavish. The mood would really get better if you can satisfy your beloved’s tummy.
If you lack some cooking wares and equipment, then you should invest in them, too. There is no point on borrowing tools in your neighbors because that is quite embarrassing and taxing at the same time. Better get those amenities for yourself. These investments can serve you the next time you will plan for another date in the kitchen. Get those personal blenders, skillets, and juicers right away!
Cleaning the Kitchen
If you are finished in cooking, then it is time to prepare your kitchen. Clean all the dishes and all the materials you used in food preparation. Arrange them properly in their respective storage so that your kitchen will look good and tidy. Don’t forget to clean your counter tops and tables as well.
If you want a foolproof and tidy appearance, make sure that you vacuum the flooring of your kitchen. Just remove any blemishes that could become an eyesore to your date. If possible, just do a general home cleaning. This would certainly leave your partner dumbfounded and impressed! After all, a squeaky clean abode is a rare sight for busy couples!
Wrapping It Up
If the two of you are sitting on the dining table already, it is time to start your date. It would be great if you have prepared finger foods like crackers or fries because they can easily stir up conversations.
I am sure that the two of you know each other very well. Therefore, if you are running out things to talk, then you could just explain why you have chosen the recipes that you made. Are there any special memories lurk behind these foods? These things could really make the night light and lovely!
Of course, don’t forget to shower some words of affection. They could make your partner remember why he/ she fell in love with you in the first place!
