Do you all have any good suggestions for a romantic, raw, full course meal? The DB is not raw, but will try anything that I make and likes fruits and vegetables...

either chocolate or strawberry--that's what I'll be making for my man :D :cool:

I always say this but thats because these are the only recipes I've had success with for sad-eaters:
Not-campbells Tomato Soup with Mediterranean Almond Bread (you could cut it into heart shapes)
Pure food and wine Lasagna
Joel's Chocolate Mousse Pie
or you could make a raw cake with pink icing - coconut oil, agave and beetroot juice
or make a heart-shaped pizza
for additional courses - ravioli, manicotti, eggplant pizzas, spaghetti.....
Oranges and avocados when eaten together are an aphrodisiac.
There is avocado in the chocolate mousse pie.
If you served with orange juice and some more avocado somewhere.....

How about raw "fondu"? Make bite size veggies with amazing dips or thinned out pates for main course then chocolate dip with veggies for dessert. Use pretty or interesting dishes. And to make it more romantic you could always feed each other ;).

Great ideas!!! I can't impress on everyone how amazing the cacao/hazelnut pie/torte is from cafe gratitude......every time I take that first bite I think..omg this is just unbelievably delicious...raw or not raw, everyone who I've given this too is blown away!! I've made it 4 times now and it comes out perfect every time!! I've made it with ONLY almonds and that is just as good. I don't like a heavyu crust so I use 1 1/2 cups almonds (chopped fine in FP) and drizzled agave till it holds together. It is well worth the effort!!!
Happy Valentine's Day
