Romance in the Kitchen

Why don't you and your significant other cook up a meal together and stir up a little romance in the kitchen? You both will feel a sense of closeness and enjoy sharing something fun. Take time out of your busy life to cook, share and snuggle a little in the process. The dinner you make together does not have to be elaborate, just some of your favorite foods with your favorite person. Throw in a few candles a little wine and you create a lot of romance and fun.

Cooking together is fun and romantic

Make Dinner Together

Plan Ahead:

  • Make a grocery list
  • Decide what you want to cook
  • Shop for the food
  • Set the table with candles and placemats for a romantic dinner
  • Start the prepping and cooking
  • Put on some romantic music

In the Kitchen

Delegate the different jobs. One person can be the chopper and the other the cooker. You can change back and forth as you see fit. Get creative with different spices and ingredients. Make sure you use this time together to communicate ideas and share experiences. You are in the room together so use this time to bond. A little hug or kiss occasionally will add flavor to the food. Have fun tasting your masterpieces as you go along during the cooking process.


This is a fun time for you to experiment with new dishes and new ingredients you have never had. You can get adventurous and try new spices and cooking methods. Share a glass of pre-dinner wine to make it a festive occasion.

Serving the Food

Time to sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Serve the food family style on the table. Pour a glass of wine if you desire. Use cloth napkins and place mats for the occasion. Put on some soft music, sit down and savor the food with good conversation. Make a point not to talk about stressful subjects. Talk about personal things, places you want to go and even how you feel about each other. Don't forget to light the candles before sitting down to dinner. And remember to plan your next cooking experience together for a little romance.

Clean Up

Clean up as you cook so you don't have to face the dishes after dinner. You are working together so whatever you do should be a lot of fun for both of you. Oh heck! Wait till the morning to do the dishes. Don't ruin your fun evening together.

      I love cooking with my wife - and if it's for the hub, better still. Cooking with a little wine drinking goes a long way. as long as you focus on what you're doing and don't drag into it the boring events of the day. Keep the focus on each other, keeping the subject light, and always keep touching - ALWAYS. Things get pretty heated - pretty fast, but hold off until after everything's cooked at least. Lol. Voted up/awesome/follow. Peace. Kawi.

      Very inspiring! After some good food and some wine, the fun continues behind doors. Your hub is great for couples that might need a closer relationship, and women love that! Thanks!

      It is so much fun to cook with my husband. We don't have enough opportunities lately, but your Hub has inspired me to make time. It's a great bonding experience. Thanks for the tips!

      "I second the emotion". Yes this is fun. Occasionally the meal never made the "table". ;)
