10 Perfect Cuts for the Holiday Made for Two

“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”  — Dr. Seuss

Valentine’s Day, the lovers’ holiday for just the two of you. It’s time to let the rest of the world fall away and embrace what brings you together. It’s time to celebrate your union.

In Shakespeare’s time, it became fashionable to send sentiments of love on February 14. That was the day on which two fifth-century Christians named Valentine were martyred on the same day, but in different years.

From there, as they say, the rest is history.

Today, Valentine’s Day is known as a day for pulling out all the stops and spoiling your sweetheart. Rather than braving the hustle and bustle of a crowded restaurant, consider a romantic dinner for two created in your own kitchen with your own hands.

These are some of our favorite cuts for celebrating an intimate Valentine’s Day in.
