Well, it’s no secret that there are thousands of recipe ideas out there for all kinds of meals. What you prepare in the kitchen will depend on the types of food and ingredients that your other half loves.

Before you begin

It’s important that you plan other elements of your romantic birthday meal for your loved one. For example, you should research a fine wine to have with your meals together. And what about a birthday cake?

If your other half isn’t keen on birthday cakes, how about something unusual such as an arrangement of “flowers” made from fruit? There are a few companies that offer such delicious bouquets, plus you’ll never have to water them! Oh, and if you want to save a few bucks, check out these Edible Arrangements coupon codes.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s carry on to the romantic birthday meal ideas:

1. Parmesan Risotto with Roasted Shrimp

Is your partner quite keen on seafood? And do they have a love for Italian meals? If the answer to both questions is yes, you could cook up a delicious Parmesan Risotto with Roasted Shrimp meal for them! It’s the kind of meal that you would conjure up for special occasions, such as birthdays!

2. Duck Breast with Pomegranate-Citrus Glaze

You might think that cooking duck at home is something you should never attempt and that it’s only a meal you should eat at a restaurant. But, it’s a meal idea that is easier to prepare and cook than you may have first thought! Plus, it’s just as special a dish as something else you’d have on special occasions, like steak, for example.

3. Pork Chops with Port Wine Sauce

Okay, so you might assume that pork is nothing special for a romantic birthday meal idea. But, almost any ingredients can be made spectacular! What makes this particular dish special is the addition of port wine sauce. Serve the pork chops over some rice or polenta before you lay on the sauce. Just avoid the temptation to drink the sauce; remember, it’s for your meal!

4. Stuffed Eggplants with Herbed Bulgur Wheat

Is that special someone in your life a vegetarian? If so, here’s a brilliant meal idea that you could conjure up for them in your kitchen! Stuffed eggplants with herbed bulgur wheat are both delicious and straightforward to prepare. The addition of some herbs and pine nuts completes the dish and makes it a meal to remember.

5. Prosciutto and Arugula Pizza

An interesting take on something you would usually have delivered to your home when you can’t be bothered to cook is prosciutto and arugula pizza. It only takes around ten minutes to cook in a hot oven, and the combination of prosciutto and spicy arugula is a winner for any romantic meal.


Good luck!
