A classic romantic French menu that anyone can make anywhere.

Lay a red and white check tablecloth, a few flowers in a small vase or glass jar (moderation in flowers is very French), chill a bottle of white, pop a bottle of Champagne, let the red wine breathe. Play a little bit of French music, and make the dishes with love. This is the perfect romantic French menu for any time and on Valentine’s Day,  it’s a real winner.
