It happens to the best of us. Even with the best-laid plans, sometimes things just go wrong on Valentine's Day — whether the weather just won't cooperate, the car suddenly and inexplicably decides to die, the restaurant cancels or can't find the reservation (also inexplicably), or you just plain forgot to make one, it's always important to have a backup plan.

And here it is. Fourteen imaginative recipes from some of the best cooks and chefs across the country all in one place, so all you have to do is shop and cook. Highlights include a lovely traditional Nordic cheese fondue, grilled steak with chimichurri sauce from, and a traditional South African dish from New York City chef Hugo Uys, lamb bobotie. Never mind about going out then. It's time to pop open a lovely bottle of sangiovese and fire up the stove. And forget the card: The meal will say it all.
