Spice Up Your Relationship by Cooking With Your Partner
Couples that spend quality time in the kitchen preparing a meal together connect and bond. The process of selecting a recipe, prepping the ingredients and putting the dish together inspires understanding, communication and collaboration. It turns what can be a dull, tedious task, into a fun and intimate experience. And hopefully, it also results in a delicious meal!
DuBreton, the all-Canadian farming trailblazer and North America’s number one producer of Certified Humane Raised and Handled and Organic pork, offers its recipe for couples looking to spice up their relationship in the kitchen:
• Two parts communication
• Pinch of adventure
• Dash of fun
• Touch of spice
• The very best ingredients
1. Plan ahead. Choose a recipe you both want to make, and set aside time to shop for all the ingredients. Don’t be afraid to try something new.
2. Share the responsibilities. Decide who is doing what before you enter the kitchen. Don’t want to get stuck chopping? Make it exciting by writing the roles down and drawing them out of a mixing bowl.
3. Throw in some communication. This is one of the most important elements of cooking together. Communication is key to ensuring that no steps are missed and that you’re enjoying your time together.
4. Add a little patience. Remember that it’s the thought and love that went into creating the meal that counts. If you’re less than pleased with the end result, laugh, learn from your mistakes and order in. Within no time, you and your partner will be cooking up a delicious storm.
5. Enjoy. Turn off the gadgets, dim the lights, light the candles and appreciate what you created together. Talk about your dreams for the future and savour the moment.
Make your next date night a cooking night! Grab your other half and combine two great loves: bacon and chocolate featured in this easy-to-make, melt-in-themiddle Chocolate Lava Cake with Caramelized Bacon Bits shown on the opposite page.
