Romance

Episode 2 of 6

Cookery series. Sophie Dahl talks through dishes for the three stages of romance. On the first date, she recommends a dish including scallops and an Eton mess pudding.

In a loving mood and inspired by the romance of train stations and graveyards, Sophie Dahl talks us through her perfect dishes for the three stages of romance.

On the first date, she recommends scallops roasted in their own shells, with garlic and chilli marinade served with crushed, minty peas, and a glorious mountain of rhubarb and rosewater Eton mess sprinkled with crystallised rose petals for pudding.

The honeymoon phase is all about serving sexy breakfasts at any time of the day and the dish is cheese soufflé blinis with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon.

By the time the romance reaches the 'settled on-the-sofa' stage, the focus is on individual dishes that show you care and she creates some personalised shepherd's pies for herself and a meat-eating beau.
