When chefs date, one thing is for sure: Dinners at home are going to be great—especially in the early stages, when they’re trying to impress each other. Here, five chef couples reveal what they cooked for each other on early dates.
Greg Denton & Gabrielle Quiñónez Denton, Ox in Portland, OR
Greg: “The first thing I remember cooking for Gabi was a roasted whole lobe of foie gras with figs. It was at a party, and I wanted to impress her. It worked!”
Gabrielle: “The first thing I cooked for Greg was rice and beans. I remember putting so much care into making them perfect, but then he had to rush back to work so the beans were undercooked. Oh well.”
