We think The Cuyahoga Valley Countryside Conservancy asks this week's most apropos question: Would you rather receive a bouquet of colorful, garden-fresh winter beets over a bouquet of roses from your Valentine?
If a locally made Valentine makes your heart skip a beat, they have a great list of ideas, from foods to sweets to dining options. Indulge your sweetie with Lake Erie Creamery truffles made from fromage blanc, covered with dark chocolate and cocoa powder (available at Crooked River Herb Farm) or have Summit Croissants hand deliver a box of freshly baked croissants packaged in a long-stemmed rose box.
Maybe you want to make romance and sustainability part of your dining plans? CVCC also has a list of Northeast Ohio chefs who are purchasing directly from local farmers and rediscovering the freshness and great flavor of locally grown and produced, seasonal ingredients.
