A romantic French Valentine’s evening

expedia world on a plate campaign

For Valentine’s Day Expedia invited me to take part in their World On A Plate ‘Love’ Campaign, and asked me to cook up a meal idea based on one of their European holiday destinations. I chose France as my romantic destination inspiration, they’re a nation known for love and romance. Paris is somewhere I would love to visit – it has to be one of the most romantic cities doesn’t it?!

They were kind enough to send me a hamper of delicious French foods for my Valentines meal. I decided to opt for a light, snack-type meal as we’d be having our ‘date time’ quite late at night when I’d finally gotten the baby to bed. Perfect finger foods to snack on whilst watching a romantic movie, snuggled up on the sofa.

I picked up some fresh baguettes, sliced them into thin rounds and topped them with a delicious combination of tomatoes and spring onions, mixed in a little tapenade, lemon juice and a drizzle of truffle oil. There were slices of brie and some tasty Boursin to go alongside.

I made a little dessert too – meringues topped with berries and a little drizzle of Bailey’s poured over the top. Delish!

We shared a bottle of Bordeaux and nibbled some of the salted caramel chocolate too {my absolute favourite}.

A perfect delicious meal for a perfectly romantic evening.

Huge thanks to Expedia for the hamper and supermarket voucher. Go to their website to find out more about their World on a Plate Campaign.
