Whether Valentine’s Day is your favorite winter holiday or you avoid it like the plague, there’s no debating it’s a big day for the world of food and hospitality. This week we’re bringing you the inside scoop on what the holiday means for the industry. We visit a dessert bar trying to avoid the clichés of champagne and chocolate and investigate how the holiday’s hues are affecting rosé sales. We get to the bottom of a rumor about diamonds (but not the ones you’re thinking of), and explore the benefits of peanut punch, a Caribbean aphrodisiac.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
