With a contented sigh and a smile, I look forward to Valentines day as much as I look forward to birthdays and Christmas. Its a time when you can pay extra special attention to your significant other, even though my significant likes to remind me that every day is Valentines day in our house!

We usually celebrate with a bottle of champagne and something good to eat and this year I’m re-creating one of his favourite dishes, a melting hot chocolate souffle. We first tried this glorious dessert at Roy’s Restaurant in O’ahu after a day spent swimming in the turquoise seas that surround this iconic Hawaiian restaurant. Its oozing chocolate centre had me weak at the knees and I vowed to recreate it for our next special occasion.

This recipe is deceptively simple to make and is  worthwhile to incorporate into a 3 course meal as it can be prepared ahead of time and baked in the oven just before you would like to serve dessert.

In association with Stockland, I have produced a video recipe for you to follow including the full written recipe and instructions which are available here on the Stockland website.

As well as this delectable delight, and because Valentines day should be as easy and romantic as possible I have also compiled 10 simple ideas for a Valentine’s day entree and the epitome of a Valentines day Romantic dinner, the main course of Quail cooked in rose petal sauce.
