Treat you and your loved one to a cookery experience at The Food Hub at Kenton Hall this Valentine’s. On Sunday 9th February, you and your partner will create a delicious 3-course menu with canapés and learn how to make restaurant style dishes with a focus on seasonal ingredients, presentation, taste and importantly timings. The perfect course for those looking for inspiration or a confidence boost ahead of your next evening entertaining.
Once you've learned how, you can surprise your other half with dishes such as gin cured smoked salmon with cucumber ribbons, duck with polenta, wilted greens and a rich sauce and chocolate caramel fondant with chantilly cream.
The course will run from 10.00am until 3.00pm and includes practical and demonstration cookery sessions, lunch and refreshments. All the ingredients, equipment and the recipes for the day will be provided. Price: £85 per person or 2 for £170.
3. Get your heart racing
Fast track your love-life this Valentine’s Day and head over to Southwold and step on board the Coastal Voyager. Make your loved one's heart race with the Sea Blast; a high-speed trip out to sea from Southwold. The 400hp boat is put through its formidable paces in a 30 min tour of Solebay. Keep an eye out for harbour porpoises, all kinds of sea birds and seals.
Alternatively, if you prefer a more serene experience, book the River Blyth Cruise; a tranquil trip up the Blyth Estuary where you can spot Marsh Harriers, Heron, Cormorants, Med Gulls and Little Gulls. The trip includes a stop at the Blythburgh White Hart pub, enough time for a meal on or a drink (not included in the price).
