Although the gift of love may be the most important thing you can offer this Valentine’s Day, a little token to go with it never hurts. Remember – what pleases the tongue will often please the heart as well. Whether you spend February 14th with your partner, friends, or family, here are some food-inspired Valentine’s Day gifts that say “I love you” in the most delicious way possible.


Heart Shaped Baked Goods from Fol Epi


This year Fol Epi will be offering assorted heart-shaped delights in addition to their usual spread of amazingly tasty organic baked goods. The mouth watering list includes shortbread cookies with raspberry jam or a 70% organic dark chocolate dip, a chocolate ganache cake, and mini vanilla bean, lemon or raspberry cheesecakes.
