For the love of food
For the love of food, treat yourself this Valentine’s Day!
You may love the excuse to get creative in the kitchen and book in a dinner date with a best friend, partner or perhaps even a group of friends. Or perhaps you’d rather get dolled up and head out for the evening… Let someone else cook for you!
Whether you plan to dine in, dine out or order a takeaway this Valentine’s Day, our expert Chefs have some inspiration for you.
1. Dine in at home on February 14th
Our Audley Head Chefs are the masters of their craft. From creating the most exquisite original dishes, to their meticulous care in perfecting every step and presenting it beautifully on a plate. Lots of people love to do just that in the kitchen at home, taking pride in every step. A special event deserves a special menu and Valentine’s Day is no different.
Here are a few of our favourite dishes to cook at home this Valentine’s Day.
Steak always makes number one on the list! Try our fillet steak au poivre
Spice things up with our healthy chicken curry recipe
Get creative with our recipe for Skrei cod with potato fondant
2. Dine out in Hungerford
If you’re looking to dine out this Valentine’s Day then a steak dinner always comes in top as the most popular choice and as a result, most Valentine’s Day set menus offer just that.
Other popular favourites include fish, curry and pasta or risotto dishes.
Our poached leek and tarragon risotto, parmesan and torched spring onion melts in the mouth, it's vegetarian too!
Our delicious Blandy's warm dark chocolate fondant, clotted cream ice cream and pistachio crumb is the perfect treat to end with.
Then there’s the traditional Valentine’s inspired afternoon tea – here at Blandy's Bistro we offer just that on our exclusive Valentine's inspired menu. Afternoon tea is delicious enjoyed with a friend, loved one or even enjoyed alone watching the world go by.
Of course, we all live busy lives and not everyone loves to cook (or perhaps you spend a lot of time in the kitchen and just fancy a night off!), in which case there is no shame in treating yourself to a takeaway.
That could be one of the typical takeaway favourites… fish & chips, Chinese, Indian, Thai, fried chicken, pizza...!
Have you considered the supermarket alternatives?
Top tip: Often the supermarket ‘Meals for two’ are tastier, healthier and more affordable than the fast-food equivalent.
Cheers to that!
Don't forget to accompany your dish with something refreshingly ice-cold.
