Romantic bites – there’s nothing sexier than a romantic bite now I know this is a family blog but when people think of romance we tend to think of mouths and kissing – and tasting. So romantic bites are just that. It’s taking a small piece of food and putting it into your mouth and enjoying every flavor, every spice or every sweetness.
