A Besh Box Gathering :: Valentine’s Date

Whether you’re planning a quiet dinner at home or snagged the hottest reservation in town, you really can’t go wrong with any scenario that involves good food on the 14th. We’ve partnered with celebrated chef John Besh to create the ultimate V-day plan: a candlelit meal and a surprise subscription to Besh Box! We captured the lovely Anna as she preps for a romantic evening with her honey (and for those of you wondering, her fictional “home” is set at Josephine House, one of our favorite spots in town.) Read more to discover why we think Chef Besh’s curated boxes are pretty much the best gifts ever for foodies and aspiring cooks alike…

    Cooking risotto (any kind), it involves wine and it is easy for two people to make together.

    My husband whips up the BEST Caesar salad. The first time he coddled an egg, I knew it was love. Then sometimes we make chicken marsala with asparagus risotto. We like to play some Rolling Stones and pour lots of merlot. We even have a sign in our kitchen that says “Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.”

    Scallops in an orange scented sauce and his favorite dessert, an apple tart. His job, choosing the perfect wine and providing complements!

    My boyfriend is no chef, but we love having Eggs Benedict on lazy Saturdays. Since there is always something to celebrate in New Orleans, mimosas will usually accompany breakfast!

    One of our favorites to make is a soul warming bowl of Paella. We pour a glass of wine, turn on our favorite swing music and enjoy our romantic dinner for two!

    Anything light and super fresh. Usually a big salad with roasted Brussels sprouts if i’m feeling zealous, and sauteed fish or scallops. All while my man is shucking oysters and pouring the beer for him and wine for me!

    We have a hibachi grill that we absolutely love! My boyfriend makes steak and shrimp with sautéed veggies. While he’s grilling our food to perfection, we both sip on some wine and listen to the tunes play through the window on our back porch. Nothing is more romantic than cooking and enjoying each other’s quality time with one another. :)

    Pumpkin gnocchi with a sage brown butter sauce and sauteed butternut squash. Rolling out strips of gnocchi and cutting and dimpling them is a lot of fun, and it’s easy enough that no one gets mad! Plus, it’s filling and delicious, and high in lots of vitamin A! To counter the sweetness and heaviness of the dish, I like to serve with a butter lettuce salad in a simple lemon vinaigrette.

    Me and my husband are both foodies and will try anything once. Our favorite meal has to be raw oysters as an appetizer and cedar plank salmon with bourbon maple glaze and bacon roasted brussel sprouts as the main course. He usually shucks the oysters while I prepare the glaze for the salmon and we both pour ourselves a healthy glass of wine.

    My husband has embraced the art of making paella. He is so organized about it, engages our kids for cutting up and organizing ingredients and then takes his time pulling it all together. it tastes fantastic and I absolutely love how he has embraced having a signature dish of his own – I do most of the cooking – while also sharing a love of cooking with our 3 kids.

    Date night meals are all about Fish Tacos! I use whichever delicate fresh fish is available, whip up a spicy cilantro cream sauce, chop up lots of fresh veggie toppings and make refried black beans. This meal is not complete without my famous margaritas made with freshly squeezed orange, and lime juice with a lovely splash of St. Germain!
