Valentine's Day presents the perfect opportunity to honour love, the greatest love, in my book, being the love of food. 

I cannot recommend better ways to celebrate your affections in small and big ways than with aphrodisiacal confection – chocolates and cakes at the Gourmet Shop, ITC Sonar. Raise a toast to a profound sentiment with the finest Champagne, strawberries dipped in chocolate – part of an extravagant buffet at Jal Mahal, ITC Rajputana and the most indulgent candlelight dinners at ITC MauryaITC Grand Central and ITC Kakatiya. Chauffeur driven limousines, gifts and roses only add to the bouquet of pleasant surprises. 

Steal intimate moments of privacy in cosy alcoves or announce your love at the rooftop restaurants. Indulge the heart and the sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. 

Have a good one! 

As for me, I'm looking forward to the duck liver parfait with toasted brioche and intoxicating sauterne jelly. Then there’s the char-grilled beef fillet with truffle oil mash, green beans and red wine jus, plus, lamb chops served with bubble and squeak and minted gravy and raspberry Pavlova filled with berry cream, and served with honeycomb ice cream. Some kinds of love just leave you breathless.
