Top Choices - What to Cook for Your Valentine

If you're wondering what to cook for your Valentine this February 14th then take a look at these interesting findings from new research from the number 1 recipe box in the UK HelloFresh.

The poll of 1,500 adults found that two-thirds of British women believe that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and Brits believe that a juicy steak, a full roast dinner and a spicy curry are the top three meals most likely to lead to a night of passion! 😉

And 35% of British men are planning on cooking for their loved one this Valentine’s day with 41% believing cooking their partner’s favourite meal is the best route to getting lucky.
Whilst oysters, strawberries and sweet treats are what we traditionally associate as the food of love, but it seems the British public are far more likely to opt for a juicy steak (that'll be me please) but surprisingly, a roast dinner or spicy curry is the way to go according to new research from the number 1 recipe box in the UK, HelloFresh.

The poll showed that a full roast dinner is the second most popular choice, with two in ten (22%) respondents saying the traditional British meal is the best way to seduce their other half. It’s well-known that spicy food can act as an aphrodisiac, so it’s no surprise that 17% of those surveyed reported that a curry is their go-to dish when cooking up a night of romance.
