Date Night Dinner

What to cook for romantic nights in


We asked friend of the brand, chef Nick Janutol, for his tips on date night cooking....

What is an easy meal to prepare and cook for Date night at home?

'A favourite of mine is chicken meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce. I would serve this over a short noodle like farfalle or penne  (spaghetti can get messy). This pasta dish is a meal that can be prepared ahead of time so that you can enjoy your date to the fullest. It also makes the kitchen smell fantastic'

What wine would you pair?

Champagne. Nothing says celebration like champagne, and champagne pairs with everything. A Champagne producer I can recommend is Bruno Paillard. The Premiere Cuvee is a very special wine. 

What music would you cook to?

I've been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean of late, particularly the Blonde album. Perfect for mood setting the date night.
