Fine dining at home this Valentine’s

Valentine’s Day might look a little different this year, but there’s no reason why it has to be any less special for you and your loved ones. Even in lockdown, you can still celebrate in style. Looking to push the boat out and treat a loved one? Or perhaps you’re looking to spice things up (in the kitchen, of course!). We’ve got you covered, with our rundown of 6 amazing dining experiences to enjoy at home this Valentine’s Day.


1. Dine at home with Richard Bainbridge

Chef Patron of Benedicts in Norwich, Richard is renowned for his incredible flavour profiles and fine-dining experiences.
