(614) Columbus, the lifestyle magazine, recently shined the spotlight on Eddie Merlot’s Columbus chef Geoff Kelty. Writer Kimberly Stolz recommends that couples take some time out of all the holiday bustle and family time for a romantic evening together – and we couldn’t agree more. Writes Stolz:
Amidst all the hustle and bustle, set aside a night for some well-deserved couple time. Squint through candlelight and remind yourselves of the joy of being in love. Shrimp scampi, a throwback to the Mad Men era, is a perfect nosh for two. Considered an aphrodisiac, shrimp is a tasty jumpstart to an unforgettable evening. This updated classic from Eddie Merlot’s executive chef Geoff Kelty adds tomatoes and pepper vodka to the mix, giving the dish a modern finish and a seductive flash of color.
Stolz provides the recipe for our Shrimp Scampi for Two, which we were happy to share, and recommends that couples make this together at home. You can find that here:
Of course, if you think it’s more romantic to skip the cooking, feel free – and come and join us. Say hi to Geoff Kelty while you’re there – he’s a star now!
