By Abbie Schofield
We’re set to spend Valentine’s Day in lockdown this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go all out and treat yourself and your loved ones to a luxurious dining experience at home. Whether you’re celebrating Galentine’s with your friends, having a romantic Zoom dinner date or simply indulging in a decadent meal for one, here are 5 delicious menus that have been created especially for Valentine’s Day.
Islington restaurant Hot Stone is famous for its Omokase menu, 17 meticulously prepared courses available for just 10 guests per night. Now the Japanese restaurant has created a delivery experience for you to have a taste of Hot Stone at home, with dishes made from the finest ingredients including A5 wagyu, Koshihikari rice and black cod. The Omokase box is an incredible option for Valentine’s Day, with 24 sushi elements to share, beautifully presented in a Japanese furoshiki cloth. You can also add the likes of homemade rice wine, cocktails or matcha cheesecake to your order.
COYA X Byredo
High-end Peruvian restaurant COYA has collaborated with Byredo to create a lockdown Valentine’s feast, with a complimentary bottle of Byredo’s Rose Hand Wash included. The sharing menu features aperitivos, ceviche and larger dishes such as wagyu rib-eye and lobster carapulcra, with an exquisite rose-shaped dessert filled with lychee mousse and glazed in white chocolate. To drink, a Cupid’s Arrow cocktail and bottle of Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne are included.
Meat lovers, listen up: chef David Carter’s barbecue restaurant Smokestak has created two DIY meal kits for delivery on 12 February, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The finish-at-home kit for two includes rhubarb fizz cocktails to start, followed by salt baked beetroot with goats cheese and toasted hazelnuts. For the main, diners can enjoy beef brisket and pulled pork with jacket potatoes and ginger & green chilli slaw on the side, plus a salted caramel sticky toffee pudding to finish.
Blume’s Lockdown Lover Valentine’s Hamper contains treats from local businesses such as Chilli Bees Catering and Hayman’s Gin. As well as an exquisite three-course dinner with wine from the chefs at Chilli Bees, you can expect delicious gin cocktails by Hayman’s, a pair of handwritten candles by Heather Evelyn and a beautiful bunch of flowers from Blume themselves. There are two menu options and mains include fillet of beef with dauphinoise potatoes and miso-glazed black cod with spiced sweet potato puree.
Chef Angela Hartnett has created a five-course Valentine’s menu full of Italian delights from the kitchen at Cafe Murano Covent Garden. The romantic meal includes her signature focaccia and an artichoke starter, followed by freshly made pasta for primi. For the main, options include Ossobuco risotto Milanese while dessert is a creamy panna cotta with Yorkshire rhubarb.
