Valentine’s Day Menu from Provence

Inspired by the flavours of Provence, Jeany Cronk of Mirabeau Wine curated a 3-course Valentine’s Day Menu to celebrate the romantic evening. This February 14th celebrate life and happiness with your sweetheart, your family or your best friends and enjoy Jeany’s festive menu!


Imagine spending Valentine’s Day in Provence, snuggled up by the fire, listening to the mistral and sharing a few glasses of Provence Rosés. Well, this menu aims to get you as close as possible to a romantic French Riviera break and a good bottle of Rosé, preferably ours :-), would be a suitably dreamy choice to get your evening à deux off to a very smooth start.

Valentines Day Menu Mirabeau Pure Rosé

There are lots of considerations for food on Valentine’s Day- nothing too spicy, smelly or heavy, after all, you don’t want to feel like a beached whale, but still something luscious and out of the ordinary to make your beloved feel special. I have opted for a bit of the earth and the sea, a bit of forest and fowl and then a creamy coconut and summer berry finalé to end on a real high. All of it eminently achievable in terms of basic cookery skill level and the inevitable shortness of time.

Starter:

Beetroot Carpaccio with Smoked Salmon and Pomegranates

Dessert:

We really hope you enjoyed this menu on your romantic evening, but you can, of course, make all of these dishes for many other occasions too.

With love from Provence,

Jeany
