Letting loose in the kitchen can be both relaxing and exciting, especially when you've got great company alongside you (and some wine never hurts, either). For your next date night, consider whipping up some of these hands-on yet rewarding dishes with your partner for some deliciously flirty memories.
1. Homemade Pizza
Whether it’s the thought of exploring endless delicious possibilities or the inevitable mess you stir up in the kitchen, there’s something innately whimsical about making pizza at home. This makes for a playful, and hands-on date for you and your partner.
Up the ante by making your own pizza dough—this recipe has options for both a slow fermentation, which requires leaving the dough in the fridge for 24 hours and a quick fermentation, which requires just 90 minutes. While the first option will produce better flavour, the latter will work in a pinch.
From there, a world of pizzas awaits you. Red or white sauce; topped with fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, and rocket, or adorned with grilled asparagus, chilli flakes, and crumbled sausage? Make your own, or keep things interesting and make one for each other, and enjoy.
Tatler Tip: No pizza oven or pizza stone? No problem. You can easily use a preheated inverted baking sheet, cast iron pan, and other common kitchen items in its place.
