The perfect lockdown date night with Feast Box

Now that the Eat Out to Help Out scheme has ended, you might need a few more creative lockdown date night ideas. If you’ve always wanted to take a cooking class in Thailand with your better half, or share a romantic meal amid the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh, Feast Box is here to help you create authentic global recipes from the comfort of your own home, and now we’re here to tell you how to inject some extra romance too! 

All that's left for you to do is remember to turn on the charm...

Setting the mood

With many kitchen tables doubling as desktops nowadays, make sure to clear and set the table properly to make your date night meal feel a bit more special than any other night of the week. Or, if you’ve chosen one of our Japanese or Moroccan recipes, make it more authentic by eating around your coffee table, or even your living room floor!

We recommend lighting some candles or stringing fairy lights to recreate a starry sky, and choose a playlist that matches the origin of your dinner for added ambience.

Getting handsy

Before you actually get handsy, this meal isn’t going to make itself! Our recipe cards clearly guide you through from start to finish of how to make a fairly impressive meal, if we do say so ourselves. You can either pamper your loved one and whip it all up yourself, or muck in together and pretend you’re at a cooking class somewhere warm and sunny where spreadsheets don’t exist. We often get feedback that our customers love learning new cooking tips and skills when preparing their Feast Box, so you could learn exactly how to pinch gyozas or roll koftas together – a true bonding experience!

Whatever way you divvy up the responsibilities, our recipes are guaranteed to transport your tastebuds and give you that loving feeling after just one mouthful.

Extra special little bits

After you’ve chosen your specially-curated, super-romantic menu, don’t forget to add some wine, cider, beer or chocolate to your cart before checking out, for a thoughtful little extra.

However you spoil each other, we’d love to see your romantic Feast Box date nights. Tag us in your creations on social media to be in with a chance of winning a free recipe in your next box @feastbox
