Let Heston get you in the mood with the food of love
Valentine’s Day, the most loved-up day of the year, when around 16 million couples celebrate with a romantic meal in the UK. But is there really a connection between food and romance?
Each year in the build up to the big day, experimental chef Heston Blumenthal is asked whether he thinks there really is a recipe for romance. People want to know is there is a specific culinary formula that can help spice up their love lives.
In this one-off Valentine’s special Heston has joined forces with a team of experts from the worlds of science and psychology to try and develop a meal that will actually affect how people in a relationship feel about each other. And he’s invited five couples in different stages of their relationships to experience the results of the multisensory menu he has created.
