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.

If you’re thinking of cooking for a first date, why not try out some thinly sliced steak inside one of our Brioche Hot Dog Rolls – an easy way to impress, simply served with fries and salad.

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!
