Nothing says I love you like a favourite book

 

Do the thoughts of Valentine’s Day make you go dry in the mouth while your palms begin to sweat? Well, if your special someone is a book lover, we’ve got you covered. Choosing just the right book for the one you love will show them just how well you know and love them. Head over to our bookshop where you’ll find something to suit all tastes.

 

Or, if you plan to cook something that will impress your love, we have some great tips and recipes from our top cookery authors that will keep you in the good books!


Dinner to impress any foodie

 

Not a top chef? Fake it til you make it with this tried, tested and mastered Thai Chicken Curry recipe from Recipes of a Nervous Breakdown by Sophie White. Guaranteed to impress the most seasoned good food connoisseur.


If you already have a knack for making delicious food this special Valentine’s Day Dinner from Festa: A Year of Italian Celebrations by Eileen Dunne Crescenzi will ensure you maintain your impeccable reputation. Perfect for two couples or a group of family and friends, just change the quantities accordingly. Bellissimo!


The Breakfast Club

 

Nothing speaks the language of love quite like a good breakfast. Check out this recipe video below for American-style Pancakes with Bananas and Maple Syrup from Neven Maguire’s Complete Family Cookbook. We recommend adding streaky bacon on the side for that extra special touch!

 

 

 

 

If you want to keep it a bit on the healthier side these Smoked Salmon Blini with Healthier Hollandaise from Susan Jane White’s The Extra Virgin Kitchen are delicious with a healthy twist.

 

Valentine’s Treats

 

Bake these Lemonade, White Chocolate and Fraughan Scones from Catherine Fulvio’s new book A Taste of Home together with a loved one or with the kids. They taste delicious and can be enjoyed any time of the day. If like many, your Valentine’s Day is not complete without chocolate try these homemade Chocolate Brownies from The Brother Hubbard Cookbook. Heavenly!


Happy Valentine’s Day to all our readers! Remember the love of a good book will never fade. We leave you with the last words of W.B Yeats poem He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven from The Pocket Yeats:


“I have spread my dreams under your feet. Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”
