Life Fork & Spoon plays cupid this Valentine’s Day

It’s universally acknowledged that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach – it’s safe to say the same applies to ladies. With that in mind, Life Fork & Spoon, the fantastic, home-delivery service by TV Chef, James Martin, has introduced three tempting Valentine’s Boxes, allowing lovers to indulge in delicious, restaurant quality dishes in the comfort of their own home.

The Life Fork & Spoon luxury Valentine’s Boxes mean lovers can treat their better halves to a lavish gourmet meal whilst avoiding crowded local restaurants and without hours spent in the kitchen. With each dish designed with romance in mind by James Martin and his team of experienced cooks, sweethearts can impress their loved one with a sumptuous three-course meal.

Romancers can choose from three delectable Valentine’s Boxes, each with a complimentary box of luxury chocolates to sweeten up that someone special.

Seduce beloveds with a hearty classic, including two servings of flavoursome Carrot and Dill soup, followed by succulent Chicken bursting with Pork, Leek and Bacon Farce served in a mouthwatering Portobello Mushrooms and Madeira sauce. Lovers can then spoil their Valentines with James Martin’s delicious twist on a classic dessert: White Chocolate Croissant Bread and Butter Pudding with a hint of Whisky (£40, free delivery).

Bring a little ‘oo la la’ to the table with a tempting Cream of Three Mushroom Soup starter, followed by a delicious Duck Confit accompanied by a rich Orange Sauce for the main course. Finish off with two delightful Apple Tart Tatins served with lashings of luxurious Caramel Sauce (£40, free delivery).

Not forgetting vegetarians, Life Fork & Spoon has created a veggie delight comprising two servings of bold and warming Broccoli and Stilton soup, followed by a beautifully creamy Mushroom Stroganoff, while two portions of Sticky Toffee Date and Pecan Pudding make for a decadent dessert (£35, free delivery).

All of the mouthwatering dishes within the three Valentine’s Boxes are created using top quality ingredients and choice cuts of meat, cooked with love and passion to create handmade, real restaurant quality food to enable the perfect romantic night in.

Ordering is quick and easy – Casanovas simply select the box that their Valentine would most enjoy, choose a delivery date and time, checkout via the secure online process and the products will be delivered direct to the customer’s door. Of course, if what’s on offer in the Valentine’s Boxes doesn’t appeal, customers can browse through over 60 dishes on the website including chicken, beef, pork, fish, pies, quiches and vegetarian options and make their preferred selections in order to create their perfect romantic night in.

All the dishes in the Life Fork & Spoon range are snap frozen allowing them to reach the customer in optimum condition. They can then be gently thawed for use immediately or stored in the freezer for later. With nothing to distract from the amorous mood, the customer is supplied with clear handling and, where appropriate, simple reheating guidelines. As the meals have already been fully and gently cooked by James and his team of professional chefs, the customer need just reheat the products in order to serve and enjoy. James recommends reheating the products slowly and gently for the best results.

James comments: “ We have worked hard to create a delectable range of Valentine’s menus that are sure to delight that someone special. The dishes, designed with convenience in mind, require minimal preparation from the customer. This Valentine’s Day, our customers can free themselves from the kitchen and concentrate on the romance.”

The Valentine’s Boxes will be available to order from Monday 6th February subject to availability. Visit to order a Valentine’s Box or to peruse the other dishes available.
