Share a romantic dinner differently.
If you and your partner love to cook but you’ve never tried cooking together then this idea could be one of the most romantic things you’ve ever done.
Be sure you have a relationship that can tolerate failure because if you do this and it fails you can then grow closer by laughing about it latter.
I’m not a cook. I can cook but I don’t really enjoy it. It has not been unusual for us to have guest around when I have cooked and have them complement me on my cooking. But because I can cook doesn’t mean I enjoy doing it.
So as romantic ideas go this is not a good one for my wife and myself. But you might think it’s great. You may thing that these romantic cooking ideas are the perfect cooking adventure for the both of you.
Romantic Cooking Ideas 101: How Does It Work?
Pick a day in the week were you are both free and not under pressure. For that one night, learn how to cook one or two dishes from a specific kind of cuisine.
The idea is to tackle a new kind of dish that neither of you know how to make and learn it together. It’ll be a night filled with food, laughter and romance.
Variation: Pick a different head chef each night
If the above worked try this variation on a different night. Have one of you as lead chef and one sous chef. This creates a lot of interesting dynamics for a couple. One person is leading the other. Then next time on another day, turn the tables.
This only works however if you both have a bit of humility and are happy to do it the way your partner wants.
The lead chef is ultimately responsible for picking the recipes, choosing where to buy ingredients and for the taste of the food. The sous chef helps out every step of the way.
Make a list of romantic cooking ideas
Make a list of the dishes that you’ve always loved.
Do this list together and make it of different dishes that you’ve both always loved, but never thought you could learn how to cook.
For example, you may have always loved Mediterranean food, but the complexity of all the sauces, the wraps and the cooking methods may have lead you to believe that you’d never be able to cook those foods yourself. This could be the perfect time to turn all of that around.
Then embark on the journey of learning how it’s done, together.
This kind of Romantic cooking adventure can be a great way to build deeper connections. Work on a project together and have great food. It doesn’t have to be expensive and you never have to leave your home.
