The secret ingredient to romance is beautiful food, just ask a romantic.
With Valentine’s Day in mind, follow your heart to Carluccio’s for a wonderful selection of Italian dishes and gifts full of passion and amore for you and your sweetheart.
Take your time over it
Love should be lingered over. Our food shops are bursting with Valentine’s gifts to choose from. Flowers and chocolates are a classic choice for a Valentine’s Day gift so, this year, surprise the object of your affection with a bouquet of milk chocolate roses instead. Elegantly presented in a sleek box, they’re sure to impress. The beautiful Rosa di Cioccolato is available to buy individually (£4.50, 20g), by the half dozen (£24.95, 120g, boxed) or as a statement arrangement of twelve (£49.95, 240g, boxed). There’s also an option of a single chocolate rose with milk chocolate gianduja hearts (£7.50 70g). Old-school romantics will love the Bigliettini (£2.95, 25g) – milk chocolate hearts wrapped in foil with a love note printed on the inside of the foil.
For a cosy night in, why not cook your way into your loved one’s heart with Carluccio’s brand new Cuori di Pasta (£3.95, 500g) – heart-shaped pasta coloured with spinach, beetroot and tomato. Pasta lovers will delight in this unique treat, which can be paired with one of Carluccio’s beautiful Italian sauces. Add a finishing touch by dressing the table with a single chocolate rose – now that’s amore!
Alternatively, give your sweetheart some sweet hearts with Carluccio’s Cuoricini al Latte (£5.50, 150g, milk chocolate), Cuoricini alla Fragola (strawberry flavoured white chocolate hearts), or jelly hearts, Cuori Rossi (£2.50, 130g). The white chocolate and red berry Torrone (£6.95, 150g) won’t fail to hit the spot, along with a jar of Cuori di Cioccolato (£7.95, 330g) – gianduja-filled milk chocolate hearts wrapped in foil.
You can’t hurry love, but sometimes life gets in the way
For those juggling a million things at once, Carluccio’s online next-day delivery service has taken the panic out of last-minute present-buying. Relax in the knowledge that you can order online right up until 13th February for next day delivery.
Wine and dine your amore
You set the date. Our Valentine’s menu runs from 11th – 16th February leaving you to make the night your own. Treat your special someone to dinner at Carluccio’s with a three-course Valentine’s menu at £25 per person including a glass of prosecco (no celebration would be complete without it). Start with the smooth chicken liver pâté served with toasted Tuscan bread and sweet onion marmalade, or share a platter of our favourite Italian antipasti. Mains include a walnut pesto and leek risotto, topped with fresh ricotta; pan roasted cod fillet with herby potatoes, capers and lemon; or continue the sharing theme with a chargrilled rump steak for two, topped with shaved parmesan and rocket and served alongside rosemary potatoes and tarragon aioli. For dessert, there is a sharing selection of chocolate and raspberry cake, raspberry panna cotta and chocolate-dipped strawberries to linger over.
Carluccio’s – at the heart of it all this Valentine’s Day!
