What are you cooking for Valentine’s Day this weekend? (After all, it’s best to stay in for the holiday!) We have not one but two simple menus for a luxurious evening in. If you’re in a sweet and romantic mood, there’s an Italian-inspired trio of cacio e pepe, kale and pancetta salad, and dreamy brownies with peanut butter frosting and sea salt.

Feeling a little bitter this Valentine’s? Or want to spice up your amorous supper? Then go for the bitter menu, with lamb in chocolate sauce, radicchio with rich cheese, and a bittersweet Campari granita. Take your pick — happy Valentine’s!
