Her Valentine’s Box for Two, €120, features a celebratory cocktail (white peach Bellini) and sharing starters of gratin of pink prawns and scallops with lemon white wine velouté; salad of bocconcini, caramelised fennel, heirloom tomatoes and baby watercress; and crusty sourdough with olives and roasted red pepper pesto. Then for the main course, a choice of slow-cooked Jacob’s ladder of Angus beef with madeira reduction, glazed heritage carrots and shallot crumb; or almond and herb crusted sea bass fillet with roasted squash purée, pickled fennel and saffron sauce. Seasonal greens with salsa verde and potato and celeriac gratin complete the feast.
