Fixing a meal together can be very romantic. It gives you an opportunity to spend time creating something pleasurable.
Extend the romance beyond the fixing and eating time.
First, spend 15-20 minutes together choosing the foods for the meal. Next, plan where you’ll buy the ingredients. Select at least 3 places where you’ll procure these ingredients. Then, go shopping together.
Make it a memorable adventure: an adventure hunting the ingredients, an adventure fixing the food, and an adventure feasting on the spoils of the hunt. Robert
