Valentine's Day looms on the horizon, and now's the time to make with the planning if you don't want to be left trolling Tinder in post-breakup desperation come February 15th.
If your significant other is into eating plants over animals, the traditional V-day dinners probably aren't going to cut it. Luckily, Chef Mark Reinfeld has your back with a killer, four-course aphrodisiac-inspired menu.

Reinfeld made a recent relocation to South Florida, and he's hosting a five-day vegan fusion culinary immersion in Hollywood that's coming up on April 17th through 21st.
