"A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine" - Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
Wine to me is a passion. It's family and friends. It's warmth of heart and generosity of spirit.
Alvin, I was impressed when I saw your Valentine's Day menu. Looked like it was from a fine dining restaurant and everything I would wanna eat! Your wife is so lucky :D Hope u guys had a great Valentines.
Thank you, Yen! It is fine dining @ my restaurant 2706!! :D
Mmm...short rib. Oooo! Cake!
Hi Erika! All your favourite food? :)
You must open your Fine Dining Restaurant to the public, Chef!...for many are being tortured whenever you do your blog post...Just perfect Menu and presentation:)
Hi Annie! Maybe... but not a physical restaurant... I'm thinking of a home-chef-for-hire concept... For sharing my passion and makinmg new friends... Let's see.
"Your words are my food, your breath my wine." Ooooo...so romantic! If your other half says the same thing to you, no need to cook liao lor. Just sit and chat...and breathe. Muahahahahahaha!!!!! I'd go for your impressive menu anytime...slurpssss!!! After all, it has been said that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach.
Hi Arthur! Your comments never fail to make me laugh... Ya right... just chat and breathe.. hahaha...
Oh.....soooooooooo soooooooooo romantic. And wow, look at the menu....exactly like fine dining at a restaurant. The love birds sure to be enjoying each other company. Happy Valentine to both of you and may love stay with you for the rest of your lives.

Is Foie easy to source in Singapore? I didn't cook for Vday this year because I had to work, your menu is very impressive indeed.
Hi Kelly! Yes, we can get restaurant grade foie gras easily at gourmet supermarket or butchery. But of course they are expensive - about S$90 - S$100 for one liver. Not your everyday food...Thanks! No need to cook... You just have to sing your man a romantic love song... :)
What a marvelous menu! I'm drooling over your magnificent dessert...perfect for Valentine's Day!
Thanks Lizzy! This was my first baking attempt after so many years and I'm glad it turned out well... with some help from wife of course...

Hi Alvin,Wow..this is so impressive. Your lovely wife is so lucky to have you and you are so lucky to have her to enjoy this with you..lolLove your dessert very much..simple and delish..:Dmui
Thanks Mui! The cake is quite easy to make even for first timer like me... I used the recipe from Nami...
Wow! Stunning menu. I had tuna belly only. Jealous, jealous, sooooo jealous ;)
LOL! Hi Denise! Tuna belly is a delicacy too!
look like fine dining restaurant standard! your wife is lucky to taste all these yummy dishes..for me, Valentine's day is just another normal day,,
Hi Sonia! We do not go to restaurants for celebration but decided to cook at home every year on this day to celebrate with the kids!
Seriously!!! Very impressive menu... I wouldn't even suggest to go to a restaurant if my husband can cook like this, Alvin! You two can open up a restaurant. I am sure you had a nice family Valentine's Day! :)
Thanks Nami! Did you find the Gateau au Chocolat familiar? It's your recipe!.. I'll be writing a post on that cake soon.
What a gorgeous and impressive menu! I would melt if someone made this for me! Delicious.
Thanks Hazel! So you are an icecream girl?! Sweet and cold... but melts easily! :P
Ok next time I must show this to my bf and demands he give me the same treatment too! hhaha
