15 Food Pairings Inspired by Your Favorite Romantic Movies

By Dresden Shumaker |

AMC has come up the ultimate list of the 50 Greatest Romantic Movies. Meg Ryan stars in three of the top fifteen, so you know this list is legit. As we begin the countdown towards Valentine’s Day the pressure is on to come up with romantic plans. But what happens if you can’t find a sitter or if you just don’t feel like being out with a bunch of newbie love schmucks? What if you are single and don’t want to be reminded of it, but still want to celebrate romance?

The solution is simple: Stay in! Stay in and make yourself something yummy. Take your menu cues from the movie itself. Of course every movie pairs perfectly with a pint of ice cream, but moving beyond that you can have a lot of fun finding menu and recipe ideas to elevate movie night beyond yoga pants and microwave popcorn.

We’ve taken the top 15 movies featured in AMC’s Greatest Romantic Movie list and come up with a dish and a drink to serve with each film. These food pairings for romance movies are meant to be a jumping off point. Let us know if you can think of more fun movie pairings or if you would change our menu around.
