Hi lovelies, 

Since Valentine's Day is tomorrow night I wanted to share with you recent interview with the Cooking Channel and YouTube star Laura Vitale! Check out how she would plan a lovely date night at-home for Valentine's Day!

Stay-at-home dates can be as romantic as time spent in any special setting, as long you take the time to set the scene using creative ideas and preparing a meal intended to woo your sweetheart.  Light candles in the entrance of your home as a surprise. Set the table with a tablecloth, cloth napkins, nice dinnerware, crystal, and flowers.  Also, choose the wine and soft music you want to listen to ahead of time and have it playing in the background.

 Now it’s time to decide on your romantic dinner menu, wine and cocktail pairings and dessert.  Our guest, self-taught YouTube Cooking Star, Laura Vitale from “Laura in the Kitchen,” will be able to help with that, especially for the millennial generation. Recent statistics show:

  • More than 40 percent of millennials ranked Italian as one of their top meals to enjoy on Valentine’s Day. Laura will share her exclusive Valentine’s Day recipe from “Laura in the Kitchen” and provide quick, step-by-step instruction on how to cook the dish at home.
  • A recent survey by ConAgra Foods found more millennials are considering the dine-at-home option instead of going to a restaurant this Valentine’s Day. Laura will share additional insights into factors like costs, crowds, etc. that are driving this decision.

Laura was born and raised in Italy until she was twelve years of age and moved to the United States. She is a self-taught chef who started her cooking journey working with her father in their family restaurants. Laura will share easy tips for others who want to improve their skills in the kitchen without any kind of formal training.
