Food Friday Tips: Romantic Meals

Tune into Food Friday this week when Albany Marriott CMP Steve Schifley, joins host Ray Graf to talk about cooking and crafting romantic meals for Valentine's Day!

1. Valentines Day Meals are meant to be shared. When serving, make one large plate instead of one for each person.

2. You don't need to go over the top. Show your partner you know what foods they enjoy.  This way you can let them know you listen and understand them.

3. Always end with chocolate and champagne.
