A Valentine’s Day Dinner

For that most romantic of holidays, we turned to France for inspiration to create this dinner menu. Begin with onion soup gratinée, topped with a golden brown crust of croutons and melted cheese. For the main course, serve steaks drizzled with a classic shallot-red wine sauce, known in France as marchand de vin, and pour a velvety Bordeaux wine. End your meal on a sweet note with warm chocolate cakes–they're guaranteed to win your valentine's heart.
