KASK have done it again with a fizz and cheese Valentine’s care package. Pop a bottle of prosecco frizzante and devour alongside a heart of Neufchâtel (with artisan crackers, of course). Even better, KASK have teamed up with Right Good Kitchen to include two slices of their chocolate fudge cake with whipped mascarpone cream - a word of warning, you may not want to share! Don’t miss their Valentine’s wine menu, with wines that are perfect for celebrating or cancelling Valentine’s.

Make your own version of the oldest known middle eastern sweet, filled with aromatic nuts and spices. Your zoom will be hosted on Sunday at 12pm by Wafaa Powell from Dancing Flavours, an expert in Lebanese cooking. While you make baklava you’ll discover the history of this ancient dish, before enjoying your own sweet Valentine’s dessert. Tickets are £30 per household, contact Dancing Flavours to book.
In a special virtual tasting and tour, you’ll get to peek behind the scenes at 6 O’clock Gin’s Thornbury distillery, before whipping up some gin ‘love potions’. You’ll sample four of their specialty gins, with two miniature bottles of each and plenty of mixers as your host, Tristan, takes you through a live gin tasting. Or book in for one of their other virtual gin tastings.
Yoga Brunch Club have teamed up with Southville’s Sonny Stores to bring you an Italian inspired brunch from home, on Sunday February 28th. Tickets include a 75 minute live online yoga class led by the incredible Elena Byers where she’ll combine music and movement for an energising start to your Sunday. Afterwards, you’ll dig into a seasonal 3 course brunch from Sonny Stores while enjoying a live Q&A with the team behind the family run restaurant.
Heartfelt Vintage are delivering afternoon tea in Bristol and Bath, filled with freshly baked treats including scones, vanilla and passionfruit victoria sponge and of course, cucumber sandwiches. Choose from classic, vegan or gluten free and if you really want to impress, add a bunch of flowers to your home delivered afternoon tea for two.
Bristol’s gin experts have teamed up with Southville favourites, Zara’s Chocolates, to create a Valentine’s to remember. Join them on zoom for a tasting this Saturday where you’ll tuck into some tasty truffles made with Psychopomp’s Marzanna gin and a specially created gin cocktail. We can guarantee this chocolate and gin pairing will be a match made in heaven.
