It’s hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is upon us already; it feels like just yesterday when we were celebrating Christmas! Don’t panic however, The Butler’s Pantry is here to help with a treat for everyone.
St. Valentine was a Roman priest and physician who suffered martyrdom during the persecution of Christians, by the emperor Claudius II Gothicus. Common legend states that he defied the emperor’s orders and secretly married couples to spare the husbands from war. In this Modern day, Valentine has come to be known as the patron saint of lovers.
