It’s the season of love! Old Town Spice Shop, your spice store in Colorado, has a few ideas to spice up your date nights this year. The best part about Valentine’s Day is spending time with the people you love. So why not treat your date or friends to dinner at home instead of rushing around to get a last-minute reservation? Here’s a V-Day menu with a twist that is sure to have anyone drooling.

The Starter - Kombu Celery

This delicious and crunchy starter is so easy to make that your dog could do it! Plus, it’s a great snack while you’re cooking the rest of your dinner. These salty, crunchy, and sesame oil-drenched celery stalks are so good you’ll forget they’re made from vegetables. Sprinkle on some of our Black Sesame Seeds for a finishing touch, and they’re ready to go!

Dessert is essential for date night! This Chocolate Grasshopper Ice Cream Tart will melt in your mouth and just might become your new favorite dessert. It does need to be frozen solid before you serve it, so you’ll need to make it ahead of time!
