Valentine’s Day Cooking Demonstration Ideas


Who could resist this vibrant cheesecake?Are you putting together a Valentine's Day cooking demonstration? If you are, you're not alone. Lynda Murray, RD, LD, recently requested healthful Valentine's Day recipes for an upcoming cooking demonstration in front of 150 people! Lynda was looking for a few healthful dishes that could fit her theme, but not be the same old Valentine's Day offerings.

We found so many great options for her in the free recipe archive that we got carried away by enthusiasm and want to share them with you too. And if you're not planning a cooking demonstration, you can still incorporate some of these dishes into your Valentine celebration.

Starters and Salads

For a gorgeous and balanced salad that highlights the importance of presentation, try this new recipe for kale salad.

Of course, the vegetarian carpaccio also brightens up any plate while highlighting a variety of colorful vegetables.

Main Dishes

No Valentine's Day celebration would be complete without this simple and tasty flavor plate.

You could also take things in a different direction and serve the quick and versatile angel hair pasta with roasted marinara sauce.


Desserts take center stage on Valentine's Day. For a fast and simple option, try the chocolate-dipped strawberries that we talked about yesterday.

For a truly show-stopping and jaw-dropping dessert that is as tasty as it is bright, break out some raspberry beet cheesecake.

Of course, the berry yogurt bombe is a creative and delicious option as well.
