Ultimate Anniversary Dinner Ideas: 5 exquisite menus that will impress

There is more pressure in making an anniversary special than there is for birthdays and holidays. Don’t stress out if you’re too busy to take your husband or wife on a big romantic trip to France. The gesture of preparing an anniversary meal at home can be just as, or even more, appreciated. If you want to make your evening even more unforgettable, compose your menu in connection with your relationship, perhaps you found this amazing gelato that summer in a small Italian village?
Take your partner & your guests on a culinary journey through your best memories together. In the meantime, a little bit of inspiration never hurt anyone. And what better source of inspiration than our very own Private Chefs who have put together a wide range of dishes to fit your taste-buds and preferences. 

French Connection

We begin our anniversary dinner ideas with a romantic French classic.  Did this remind you of your trip to Paris when you just had started dating? Or, rather, did it remind you of the trip you’ve always wanted to take your partner on? This anniversary, take him/her on a culinary voyage to the city of Love. 
Pack your menu up with a rich quiche lorraine and a creamy shrimp with garlic. And of course, chocolate is a must have, top that with cherry & your guests’ mouths will be drooling even if they’re already full with the main dish. Et voila, you’ve got yourself an impressive French menu & a memorable evening shared with your loved ones.

If you’re not sure about how to make this delightful quiche lorraine, Chef Ricardo will walk you through the best quiche lorraine recipe. Don’t worry, it’s not too hard to make!
