Celebrate Valentine's Day with Rumi Spice

Valentine’s Day is Thursday, February 14th and if you are looking for ways to celebrate, we have some ideas for you. Whether you are celebrating with a group of friends or your very own Valentine, here are five fun ways ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

#1 Dine Out for Dinner

One of our favorite ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day is with a night out on the town for a delicious dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. We especially enjoy dining at a restaurant where chefs are using Afghan saffron. Whether you order a one of a kind entree, a decadent dessert, or a cocktail with a twist; saffron’s earthy, complex flavor lends a subtly sweet and floral taste to any dish.

Looking for a restaurant that uses our Afghan saffron? Call and make reservations at one of the following:

  • Free Rein, Chicago
  • French Laundry, Napa County
  • ABC V Kitchen, NYC
  • AOC Wine Bar, Los Angeles

    #2 Hunker Down at Home

    If staying in and celebrating Valentine’s Day is more your scene than a night out on the town, then hunker down at home with a delicious home cooked meal. Whether you are hosting a Valentine’s Day party with a group of friends or celebrating with a more intimate dinner exclusively for you and your very own Valentine, skip the ordering in and elevate your Valentine’s Day dishes with these recipes instead:

  • Chicken Scallopine with Saffron Cream Sauce
  • Saffron Seafood Risotto
  • Saffron Shrimp Succotash

  • #3 Bake Up a Sweet Treat

    Valentine’s Day is synonymous with candied hearts, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne infused cakes. Although these are all delicious, put a new twist on traditional Valentine’s Day desserts with some of these saffron inspired dessert recipes:

  • Orange Olive Oil Cake with Saffron Whipped Cream
  • Saffron Flan (double points if you can bake it in a heart shaped pan!)
  • Saffron Arroz Con Leche
  • Saffron Buttermilk Lemon Pie
  • Saffron Cream Cheese Brownies*
  • *Perfect for passing out and sharing with friends, colleagues and neighbors.

    #4 Give a Gift

    Hand written cards and boxes of chocolates are great Valentine’s Day gifts, but if your Valentine’s true love lies in the kitchen or in giving back to others, why not give them the gift of Rumi Spice. Some great Valentine’s Day gift ideas include our Rumi Gift Saffron, Rumi Spice Blend Gift Box or the Ultimate Rumi Spice Gift Box.

    Looking for gift ideas for friends or neighbors? Try our Saffron + Tea Kit.

    #5 Warm Up with a Drink

    After dinner, end the evening with your favorite beverage. Toast to the night with a glass of champagne or Mule It Over with a saffron infused drink of choice like mulled wine, saffron green tea or saffron rose herbal tea, all of which pair perfectly with a sweet treat. Cookies or cake anyone?

    No matter how you celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, remember to add a touch of festive heartfelt flavor with your favorites from Rumi Spice.
