As we continue our lives under lockdown, Valentine's Day looks a greater opportunity than ever before to raise a smile and celebrate with a few more treats than usual. Undeniably, meal kits have become a huge success for many during COVID, with there now being plenty of opportunities to elevate your dining for the day itself, available locally and nationwide.
Indulge in style with the eight course Japanese tasting kit from Angelina, offering an incredible array of tastes and an experience that few other meal kits can come close to matching. Featuring a couple of blood orange cocktails, oysters and a unique bento cheese platter too, it is truly incredible value at £70 from the Dalston based restaurant.
For those eager to make their vegan Valentine's Day something special, then the Vegan Feast from Pied a Terre looks to be a show stopping winner for lockdown. The feast features plenty of treats including Celeriac Soup, Bourguignon with Chestnuts, Cocoa Crumble and the optional extra of a vegan Champagne to toast the day's romance; cheers!
Angela Hartnett's restaurant has assembled a fantastic Italian menu for the evening, with dishes such as Mushroom Arancini with Salami and an indulgent Osso Buco, making this is a great kit for those seeking a taste of escapism too; available for delivery within the M25.
Whitechapel's Townsend has put together a luxurious four course meal which can be delivered to your door for a total of £60. Included in the kit are the likes of a Slow Cooked Short Rib, as well as a decidedly tempting sounding Rhubarb and Blood Orange Basque Burnt Cheesecake; you can even finish the meal off with an optional bottled Negroni.
Offering nationwide delivery of their fantastic two person meal kit is Boisdale, which ties in with their virtual Mi-Soul Valentine's party on the evening itself. A smoked salmon for starter is then followed by either Fish Pie or Fillet Steak, finished with a decadent chocolate fondant; topped off with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Rose Champagne and two Whitley Neill gin & Double Dutch tonics.
