Prep:

Heat up the vinegar over medium heat in a saucepan. Once it’s thickened, remove it from the heat. Pour the sesame seeds into a cup. Pierce the tomatoes with small, toothpick-sized skewers. Dip the tomato into the vinegar, then into the sesame seeds so that they stick to the tomato. Let them cool on a plate before serving. Delicious!

Makes 2 servings:

  • 1 duck breast fillet
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Valentine's Day recipes 02

Prep:

One hour before you start cooking the duck: remove the skin, place it in a soup plate and coat it with honey and pepper on each side. Add the balsamic vinegar and cover the plate. Let it sit until you’re ready to cook it.

When you’re ready to start cooking, preheat the oven to 355°F (180°C), using the broiler setting.

Peel and dice the sweet potatoes, then boil them in a saucepan for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, place the duck on the oven’s middle rack. Let it broil for 7 minutes on each side.

Once the sweet potatoes are cooked, blend them together with the half-and-half and olive oil.

Serve the honey duck with a side of sweet potato purée sprinkled with some orange or lemon zest and a pinch of allspice for just a bit more flavor.

Makes 2 servings:

  • 3 clementines
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • Salt

Valentine's Day recipes 03

Prep:

Melt the chocolate with a pinch of salt in a double boiler or in a bowl in the microwave. Whichever way you choose, keep an eye on it as it melts. Dip each quarter halfway or completely into the chocolate using a toothpick and let them cool on a baking tray in the fridge or at room temperature.
