Menu #1: I’m new to this — help!

You want to serve a special meal for your date, but there’s one problem: You're not much of a cook. Don't stress! Instead, make it fun. Turn on your favorite tunes, pour a glass of wine** and cook your way through our easy shrimp pasta recipe.

Menu #2: I’m a chef-in-progress.

You love to cook — but you’re not exactly ready for your own cooking show. The solution: Give your valentine some culinary TLC with an easy yet elevated dinner spread.

Menu #3: I’m basically Julia Child.

You’re a serious cook. You know the difference between French and Italian meringue — and you can break down a whole chicken like it’s your job. Go all-out with caviar (yes, caviar!) to start, a surf and turf extravaganza and decadent chocolate mousse tart to cap off a memorable meal.
