Overends Kitchen has today announced it has launched a special click and collect, cook-at-home Valentine’s Meal Box, as well as a Sweet Treats Box for Two packed with handmade desserts and pastries to celebrate with the one you love this Valentine’s Day.

While Airfield Estate’s Overends Kitchen has been closed to the public in line with Government restrictions, its weekend click and collect service will give customers exciting, romantic and convenient at-home date options for this coming Valentine’s Day.

The specially-curated Valentine’s Day Meal Box has been lovingly created by Overends Kitchen’s Culinary Ambassador, Luke Matthews.

A celebration of the talent and produce that Airfield Estate has to offer the Valentine’s Meal Box experience starts with chats and snacks to set the mood and is followed by a couple of sensual starters, a smooth main course and a luxurious sharing dessert for two plus petit fours.

The Valentine’s Day Meal Box has limited availability and must be ordered in advance, It is priced at €55.00 for two and can be ordered for collection between 5pm and 6pm on 12th and 13th February via the Airfield website. The aphrodisiac-inducing menu is as follows:

  • A tapas-style appetiser of Gildas
  • Taramasalata, a traditional and creamy Greek dip made from fish roe, olive oil, lemons, onions served with Overends Kitchen acclaimed brown bread
  • An entree of grilled purple sprouting broccoli from Airfield Estate gardens, with a miso dressing and sliced pancetta
  • A pasta course of potato and parmesan gnocchi with cashel blue cheese and a rosemary sauce
  • A seasonal and sumptuous main of Airfield Estate Jacob’s Lamb served two ways, alongside Jerusalem artichoke and cavolo nero kale
  • Craquelin choux bun with beetroot molasses and sweet woodruff pastry cream
  • Petit fours

In addition to the meal box experience, Overends Kitchen has created the perfect gift option, the Sweet Treat Box for Two. Priced at €25 per box with collection available 12th, 13th and 14th February, this promises an even sweeter Sunday on Valentine’s Day.

A selection of 12, freshly-prepared and lovingly designed handmade sweet treats are beautifully presented in a romantically-themed box. The Sweet Treat Box includes old school favourites such as strawberry heart jammie dodgers and chocolate brownie bites and a selection of impressive, contemporary delights such as rosewater meringue kisses and raspberry macaroons.

Pauline Cox, Managing Director of Gather & Gather Ireland, said: “Valentine’s Day and food go hand-in-hand so we are delighted to step in and offer our culinary prowess to couples looking to share in a truly special foodie experience together. Our menu has been carefully chosen and lovingly prepared to bring a delicious yet affordable option to click and collect customers. As a result of the pandemic, we haven’t had much opportunity for consumers to experience our new collaboration with Airfield Estate’s Overends Kitchen, so this is a special offering that allows us to connect in a safe manner and offer a taster of what’s in store here when we return to full operations in the coming months.
