Valentine's 'Fool for Love' dessert

Deborah Baic/The Globe and Mail

For Valentine's Day, rather than scrambling for a reservation at a noisy, crowded restaurant, I prefer to book a table for two at home, where it's more intimate and relaxing. I've punched up the flavours in these classic dishes to make a very tempting Valentine's meal that gives passion to the food (and to you, too). Plus, you'll be sharing from the same pot, so it's a perfect relationship meal.
