THE BEST MEAL KITS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

Break out your best plates, crack open the wine, get the candles lined up and maybe even move your laptop off the dining table because Valentine’s Day is coming. If you want to celebrate at home that doesn’t mean you actually have to cook something from scratch. Let someone else do (most of) the work by ordering one of these meal kits and if you hide all boxes you can even pretend you made a slap-up meal yourself.

Jose Pizarro’s Paella Kits

What better way to show your love than spoiling your amor with a big hearty paella from Jose Pizarro?

As well as the rice dish you also get a selection of tapas dishes including patatas bravas, croquetas and padron peppers to complete the feast.
