Have a date night at home over Valentine's Day weekend with 12th Street Catering's virtual cooking class on Friday, Feb. 12. Couples will learn to make paella.

It can be hard to plan a date night, and especially hard to plan Valentine's Day.

One common idea that often gets recommended is to cook a romantic dinner for two at home. For the holiday, however, you'll want to think bigger than making a basic dish.
