Q: My second wedding anniversary is coming up and I’d like to prepare a special meal at home for my wife. Any suggestions for something not overly complicated?

Ryan says...
First, buy my book, Entertaining with Booze. Then, turn to page 73 and voila!, a menu for The Perfect Romantic Dinner. Start off with a simple butternut squash soup (homemade or store-bought) and garnish the centre with some cooked lobster meat tossed in a little cognac—it’s a wonderfully sophisticated starter that couldn’t be easier. For the main course, do a medium-rare beef tenderloin for two (a.k.a. chateaubriand) served with Béarnaise sauce and a side of green beans steamed in white wine and tossed with slivered almonds and orange zest. For dessert, try a small cream puff tower drizzled with bourbon caramel. Serve with the best champagne you can afford and prepare for an onslaught of amorous advances.
