Some say Valentine’s Day is about love. We say it’s about food. Decadent desserts, heart-shaped treats and over-the-top dinners back up our claim. When it comes to whipping up sweets on V-Day, the choice is clear: Serve chocolate. But what to make for Valentine’s Day dinner?

We’ve got more than a few ideas. Oysters are always a nice addition to the V-Day spread. So are clams, fish and lobster. If seafood isn’t your thing, a nice steak or pork chop does this winter holiday right.

Check out the recipes below ― and break up the long months of winter with a celebration of love and good food. All you have to do is pick a dish.
