It’s that time of year again. The pressure is mounting trying to impress your sweetheart with an incredibly delicious Valentine’s Day dinner.
The good news is that you’ve been honing your culinary capabilities ever since that pesky pandemic struck. The bad news is that busy guys like you don’t have the time to hunt down unique recipes and shop for the ingredients. Plus, with all our current supply chain woes, it’s a crapshoot if the grocery store will even have the elements you need.
When you want your Valentine’s Day dinner to be perfect, there’s no harm in relying on the pros for a bit of help. By ordering a direct-to-consumer meal kit, you can rest assured that you’ll get everything you need for your special night. You can also count on quality ingredients and clear instructions on preparing your meal. If you like to wing it in the kitchen, you can also get fresh ingredients at great Valentine’s Day deals. Here are some online food providers that are going the extra mile to give you a memorable Valentine’s Day dinner.
Kick off your evening with a charcuterie board equipped with humanly raised salami, prosciutto, and Kurobuta bacon that can also make for a delicious morning-after breakfast. True Story teams up with Cowgirl Creamy to provide decadent, organically-crafted Mt. Tam cheese in a heart shape to match the heart-shaped cutting board.
You’re probably aware of Hello Fresh and their delicious and affordable meal kits that take a lot of the work out of cooking at home.
