A little word about Valentine’s Day

A little word about Valentine’s Day

Alastair Little The Godfather of Modern British Cooking
Alastair Little is one of Britain’s most celebrated chefs and has been dubbed “the Godfather of modern British cookery”.

It’s hard to imagine a time more in need of a little romance.  And of course, options for underlining your love and affection at a suitably pricey restaurant are also off the menu this year.

I got to thinking, how could I help you still enjoy a lovely Valentine’s Dinner, safely, with an element of fun, and plenty of potential for romantic brownie points.

So, gorgeous food, obviously. Simple and easy to prepare at home. Quick and easy to order.

Set the mood with a hand-crafted and barrel-aged Negroni. Then three courses, with choices. And completed with sumptuous Petit Fours, to really close the deal!

This is the easiest way to unlock your inner chef, and serve the one you love a truly romantic Valentine’s Day meal. Each of the courses are remarkable easy to serve, leaving you free to attend to wine, and to bask in the cooking glory. Have fun!

How it works

Step 1 : Order your Valentine’s Day dinner HERE.  As with Christmas, we have limited capacity, so I recommend you lock-in your order now.

Step 2 : Then, call Richard on 07400 892 792 or email info@byalastairlittle.co.uk and let us know which of the three courses you prefer.  Primo and Dolce courses may be split if you desire; Il Secondo is for two to share.

Step 3 : We will deliver you on Friday 12th February, so all you will need to do is refridgerate until Sunday, and then serve – warming up the main course.
