Doing a romantic dinner for two is not the most lucrative, but definitely my favorite service that I offer as a personal chef. For me, it’s the personal chef equivalent to theater vs. film, I preferred the adrenalin rush of feeling live audience reactions as an actress too. The majority of my work, cooking people their weekly meals, is done while the client is away at work. Romantic dinners mean I get to take a more indulgent approach towards the menu, plate it beautifully, see the delight in their faces, and oh how rewarding the sound of applause can be!

I also enjoy being a conspirator in making your loved ones happy. In all these years no one has ever asked me to dish up the syrupy romance for breakfast… until last week. My amorous client has to be away on work, so he wanted to surprise his finance with something special to start her day, ergo “the most important meal of the day” has finally gone romantic. I thought I’d share the menus I came up with for them to choose from, so you can surprise your sweetheart with an enchanting breakfast in bed too.
