Although one could assume that it was St.Valentine’s Day every day with Roqué and Wanda it was extra special on February 14th a day for special gifts, romance, and lots of loving and exotic, teasing and tempting dishes to share.

The weather was cold and the wind biting sending little showers of frost form the deliciously pretty hoar frosted hedgerows. The sky was clear, a perfect winter’s day for Wanda and Roqué to snuggle down by their log fire and reminisce.

Wanda and Roqué loved to travel on railway journeys especially romantic ones like the Orient Express. They often drove into the countryside in their classic Austin Healey 3000, with a wicker butterfly picnic hamper strapped to the boot rack.
To emphasize the gorgeous memories they re-created the Love Train at home. Riviera cocktails, fresh cockles, pork sliders from the Pullman Buffet and that very special breakfast to punctuate a romantic night.
