Perfect Romantic Evening for Two

Delicate flavours meet the emotion of the moment – isn’t that the height of romance?

On the menu, we begin with a chic and elaborate supper featuring 1001 Fondues’ own Quebec Lamb Shanks. Easy to prepare, unique, and tender on the palate, the lamb shank not only presents itself as a gem in gastronomy but also as the obvious choice for a memorable VALENTINE’S DAY dinner. 1001 Fondues’ recipe for Quebec Lamb Shanks brings out all the savoury aspects of this exceptional dish. Its subtle marriage of delicate flavours and melt-in-your-mouth texture create an exceptional taste experience and promises a privileged moment when the luxury of tasting merges harmoniously with the tender, bewitching nature of VALENTINE’S DAY. As a second option, we suggest an easy (yet equally delicious) recipe: Cheese Fondue À l’Italienne. Regardless of season, sun-dried tomatoes exude an irresistible aroma that instantly transports us to a vacation time and delight. Indulge yourself with a delectable cheese fondue recipe, featuring Quebec cheese fondue, which invites itself to the table with sunny accents of southern Italy. Mamma Mia! Heat up the pot!
