Here at St Pierre, we believe food and romance go hand in hand. That’s why we’ve created a food quiz to see if we can guess which stage of a relationship you’re at.
Based on some simple, multiple-choice questions themed around your food preferences and eating habits, we’ll predict how long we think you’ve been in a relationship for – whether it’s the honeymoon phase or the more comfortable years.
We’ve been able to create this quiz following some research we’ve conducted with consumers via OnePoll to see how much food plays a role in dating and relationships. From this, we’ve created some simple recipes for you to try out at home based on our results, using a range of our St Pierre products. Take a look at our ideas below the quiz.

Top meals for first dates & marriage proposals
While oysters, mussels and sushi were among the dishes Americans would avoid on a first date, pizza (24%), burgers (21%) and salad (21%) were the go-to safe dishes for this occasion. And should love blossom, the ideal meal for a marriage proposal is steak (27%).
Whether you’re creating a magnifique first date meal or something special to pop the question, why not try out our take on a Steak Sandwich using our 6-pack Brioche Hot Dog Rolls – an easy way to impress, simply served with fries and salad.

Popular sweet dishes for first dates
Desserts also proved popular and risk averse for first dates according to our survey respondents, including chocolate brownies (16%) and apple pies (15%) coming out as ideal choices.
If you’re thinking of making a dessert to impress, take a look at this – an apple pie meets French toast casserole! Featuring slices of our Brioche Loaf, spiced caramelized apples and sultanas, it’s a unique but easy way to wow someone at the end of a meal.

A St Pierre brunch favourite is French toast, and this one is one you won’t be able to resist. Slices of our Brioche Loaf topped with creme fraiche, nuts and bananas – brunch made magnifique!

Going all out with virtual food dates
The stats also showed that virtual food-based dates have been popular during lockdown. More than half have kept dating fun by cooking together via video calls and more than half have eaten together this way too.
With food all about making memories, it’s only right to have a memorable dish for such occasions. Why not try out a Seafood Po’ Boy served in our Brioche Baguettes.
