Put a Filter on It: The Perfect Pair

February  6, 2015

It's no secret -- we love a good 'gram. Here, we'll be posting our favorite Instagrams from the food world, on a different theme each week.

Today, we're celebrating Lamb Lovers' Month with the American Lamb Board and finding the most Valentine's Day-appropriate foods.

Valentine's Day can be about breathtaking bills at the end of prix fixe dinners. It can be about gold neckales and gold watches and (when you get older) gold teeth. It can also be about reading old Cathy cartoons and eating ice cream (here's a recipe that serves 1 on a bad day).

But beyond the showy, elaborate, all-too-often public displays of affection (or distress), Valentine's Day is about celebrating what goes well together. Take this photo of avocados and toast from Kenzi Wilbur, for example.

This February 14, put those black truffle-flavored, gold-dusted chocolates aside and show us what you think makes the perfect pair -- like lamb and potatoes, wine and cheese, or cookies and milk -- instead.

We want your 'grams! Follow us, then Instagram a perfect pair with the hashtag #F52grams and #lambloversmonth -- we'll re-gram our favorites.

Our friends at the American Lamb Board are celebrating Lamb Lovers' Month all February long. Take their quiz for a chance to win a romantic weekend to NYC.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.
