TIP OF THE DAY: Valentine Toast

Get out your heart-shaped cookie cutter and think about your menu for tomorrow.

You can start Valentine’s Day with with heart-shaped toast and red fruit jam.

Then, make extra toast hearts:

  • For lunch with soup, spread with herb butter
  • For lunch or dinner as croutons with a salad, spread with goat cheese
  • For cocktails (make it Champagne!), spread with sour cream or crème fraîche and topped with salmon caviar
  • For dinner as garlic toasts, spread with garlic butter; or plain with a cheese course

    You can first pop the croutons into a hot skillet with a bit of butter or oil to crisp them.
