just received the latest malt shovel newsletter which contained a few recipes for valentines day to match with some of there beers


With Valentines Day only a few more days away, we thought we'd share a few recipes that'll spice things up a bit for that special day and we've matched them each with one of our beers.

Oysters were documented as an aphrodisiac food by the Romans in the second century A.D as mentioned in a satire by Juvenal. He described the wanton ways of women after ingesting wine and eating "giant oysters". In reality oysters are a very nutritious and high in protein.

The 'heat' in garlic is said to stir sexual desires. Make sure you and your partner share it together.

Garlic Chicken Caesar Salad

3 cloves garlic, crushed
Dry Italian herbs

Place lettuce in a salad bowl. Top with chicken,, bacon and croutons and drizzle over dressing. Place poached egg on top and garnish with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
In European history, mustard has long been considered a potent aphrodisiac. Throughout much of recorded time, monks were not permitted to ingest mustard for it was believed to lead the men of God down the path to temptation.

It is mustard's pungency that earns the seed its aphrodisiac classification. Its intense, spicy flavour is credited with causing a rise in adrenalin.

Thankyou to our temporary visitor Dooogh17 for bringing this post back to life.

Just wanted to mention that oysters and stout/porter are a winning combination.
