VALENTINE'S AT HOME
Comfort & Joy
Jikoni aims to arouse your appetites with a delectable South Indian inspired feast. Sadly they can’t offer the usual candlelight, illicit dark corners or banquette seating of their restaurant but can certainly give you a limited edition, vegan Comfort and Joy box packed full of sunny, mood-boosting dishes perfect for your lockdown love-in including Keralan Pumpkin and Green Bean Coconut Curry and Pink Peppercorn and Rhubarb Custard Cake.
Spring To Go
For the first time ever, Skye Gyngell has curated three exquisite breakfast in bed boxes for Valentine’s Day, in collaboration with sustainable florist Kitten Grayson Flowers. The first box is packed full of Homemade granola, Heckfield Home farm yoghurt, poached quinces, postcard tea and blood oranges; whilst there is also an Allpress coffee box that comes complete with rhubarb sun buns, pocket pies and quince muffins, Heckfield Home Farm eggs and of course, Champagne
Meal kit platform to London’s best restaurants, Restokit unveils special Valentine’s Day menus from partners including Legare, Bar Douro and Galvin La Chapelle. New and exclusive partner Richard Corrigan’s Bentley’s Oyster Bar and Grill will launch on the platform with an opulent Valentine’s Day oyster feast. For those going all out, Restokit have also partnered with celebrated Mayfair florist, Paul Thomas to deliver Valentine’s stems and bouquets added to the delivery.
Prawn on the Lawn
Family run fishmongers and restaurant’s site in Islington will be selling fantastic platters of the freshest fruits de mer, straight off the Cornish day boats served with fizz (choice of prosecco or Billecart Salmon Champers) as well as an oven ready Lobster Thermidor portioned for two and served with crushed potatoes and a side salad. Pre-orders for collection via their website.
The Fulham Road traiteur and delicatessen is a treasure trove of luxurious gifts for foodies. Gorgeous French goodies delivered include breakfast and lunch options as well as a selection of Valentine’s hampers. Exclusive London supplier of Kylie’s new collection of wines, the Valentine’s hamper will include her newly launched Cava, Hasnaa Bordeaux chocolate, Colette Breakfast tea and more.
Starting the day with a home-delivered signature Ottolenghi brunch and all the celebratory extras, is a special way to the mark the occasion. The Valentine’s Shakshuka kit will be complete with the Shakshuka sauce, labneh, coriander cress, four Clarence Court eggs, Dusty Knuckle focaccia and all the ingredients to make mimosas.
Angela Hartnett has created a stylish Italian 5 course affair for delivery, complete with optional add-ones too. Her signature focaccia is sure to feature, along with a beautiful Artichoke dish, freshly made pastas and a comforting meat or vegetarian main, such as Ossobuco risotto Milanese. Keeping things seasonal, dessert will be Buttermilk panna cotta with poached Yorkshire rhubarb.
For the keen home cook, what better way to celebrate than with a delivery of the very best meat, straight from the Yorkshire Dales. For instance, their Ribeye steaks from native breed, grass fed cows are deeply flavoured thanks to the natural diet and the way they are left to mature at their own pace. This is coupled with expert butchery. Similarly Swaledale’s breakfast boxes will contain their sausages and bacon from free range, traditional heritage breeds to ensure optimum flavour.
The Silver Birch
Head Chef Kimberley Hernandez has put together a beautifully curated menu for locals this Valentine’s Day. With the option to choose from fish or meat, both menus will commence with a savoury doughnut to start - either Devon crab, pink lady apple and fine herbs or Bacon jam, cheddar and chive cream; followed by a Chicory salad and then the choice of Confit lemon sole with green goddess sauce or Sherry braised Iberico cheeks, pickled pearl onions and butter beans with seasonal sides. Black Forest Profiteroles complete the feast.
Available in gold or platinum options, Luca from Passione Vino has devised beautifu boxes complete with a Sytch Farm Studio heart shaped bowl, Angela Mugnai tablecloth and napkins and two homemade twisted candles (available for delivery across the UK). In the gold hamper (£150), Luca has selected a velvety red “Velluto” Valpolicella Classico DOC Meroni (2018) from Veneto and a sparkling minimal intervention Lambrusco from Emilia Romagna. The very best gorgonzola, grissini, olive oil are included in both too.
Everyone's favourite pasta restaurant Padella will be offering nationwide delivery on a special three course menu this Valentine’s Day including the favourite Tagliarini with Dorset crab, chilli and Amalfi lemon as the main course and an indulgent Salted chocolate pot to finish.
Islington neighbourhood institution Trullo will offer three meal kits for London-wide home delivery this Valentine’s Day, featuring some of their iconic restaurant dishes, delivered for the very first time. Our picks are: Burrata with rosemary and anchovy and Long Horn beef fillet, polenta chips and gorgonzola fonduta with marsala butter.
