It’s time to think about what to do with your special someone for Valentine’s Day 2023. There is always the chocolate, roses or jewelry, but here are four activities created just for lovers (or good friends). Of course, they all have food involved. Because, “Cooking is love made invisible.”
Food and attraction have long been linked. There are many foods, besides chocolate, that are supposed to enhance human ardor. These include chilis, lavender, oysters, strawberries, and truffles to name a few.
