Just In...

Often, there’s no better way to someone’s heart than through their stomach. Whipping up a homemade meal can show your significant other or friends you care about them and want to spend time with them. Whether your Valentine’s Day dinner is just you and your date or a group of friends, it’s easy to make it delicious.

This week, we’re sharing some mouth-watering recipes you’ll fall in love with. From quick appetizers to decadent desserts, we’ve got your Valentine’s dinner-at-home menu set. Surprise your spouse--or yourself--and get cooking.

Enjoy, stay safe and eat well.


Love to Cook

From a quiet dinner for two or wine and friends celebrating “Galentine’s Day,” you will love to cook with these recipes.

Let’s Get Together and Cook!

Celebrate the joy of cooking right from your home with a Fustini's Virtual Cooking Class. These interactive classes are led by experienced chefs in our community and invite you to discover new dishes and techniques right from your home. The class fee is per household location, so cook along with someone you are comfortable being around or plan to meet your friends virtually via class.

We can also help you cook with your friends virtually at a private virtual cooking class. Email denise@fustinis.com for more information.
