Valentine’s Day is the perfect cooking holiday. Because what says "I love you" more than a perfectly executed béarnaise? All week we will be offering up some recipes for you to practice — and execute on the big night.
What's sexier than crispy pork belly, succulent loin, juicy brined chops or a big stuffed porchetta? Not much, so we're turning to the noble pig to crank up your Valentine's feast from "Here, darling, I made you that pasta I make twice a week" to "Yes, that's a bone-in double-cut chop. Would you like some spiced apple chutney with that?" Nope, nothing hotter than that. Check out 15 of our best-looking, best-smelling, primed and ready-to-go pig recipes and hit the trough hard.
