Valentine's Day is not everyone's cup of tea...or box of chocolates, as it were. For those who would rather celebrate the holiday with a bunch of friends instead of a table for two, we have some cheeky ideas for garlic-laden, single-serving, and mess-your-dress dishes that are right up your alley. • Roasted Whole Garlic Crostini from The Food Network - Let's get things started off right. • Parsley and Pancetta Salad from Saveur - Bit of parsley stuck in your teeth? No worries tonight! • Raclette from The New York Times - Nothing clears a room faster than this stinky (but oh so delicious!) cheese-and-potatoes dish. • Ribs with Black Vinegar Sauce from Gourmet - Sticky, messy, good. • Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic from Fine Cooking - Why not keep things going with more garlic? • Panang Tofu Curry from Bon Appétit - So spicy you won't need to cuddle. • Pistachio Brittle with Ice Cream from Martha Stewart - Shards of sugar to nibble at the end of the meal. • Individual Chocolate Mousse Cheesecakes from Epicurious - You get the whole bowl to yourself. Are you going to an Anti-Valentine's Party? What are you bringing? Related: Stinky! A Profile of Washed-Rind Cheeses (Image: Romulo Yanes/Gourmet)
