Valentine Day Recipes: 7 Unique Ways to Spread the Love this Valentine’s Day

Sharing an intimate dinner with your partner is the ‘go-to’ way to express your love for many of us. The air is thick with romance, with the both of you all dressed up, at a dimly lit bistro, dining by candlelight. While the whole restaurant experience has it’s charms, it can sometimes leave a lot to be desired as well. Considering that you may be sharing the restaurant with dozens of couples with the same idea, the whole event can seem a bit impersonal, not to mention the lingering safety concerns and social distancing.

But making something with your own hands, a creation of pure affection is perhaps a truer representation of one’s love toward another. We at Urban Platter believe that cooking for your loved ones is one of the highest forms of appreciation. What could be better than cooking your partner’s favourite dish, savouring it with them in the comfort of your own home, in a setting that is both private and deeply personal, only for the two of you.

Urban Platter’s Limited Series of Gourmet Themed Cuisine Boxes have been specially curated just for moments like these. Each hand-crafted hamper contains “just” the ingredients you need to bring your desired creations to life, whether it’s meant to be a sensual surprise, a fun-tastic kitchen co-op, DIY with your single friends or simply a gorgeous gift to someone who would genuinely admire it’s contents. With 7 uniquely Themed Cuisine Boxes to choose from, you should have no problem picking one that suits your situation
