Say it with sushi!

We’ve been thinking how to inject a little more love into lockdown and have come up with a few KIBOU suggestions to help you celebrate this Valentine’s in style.

So we’ve conjured up a special Valentine’s Tasting Menu gift card that’s full of all the dishes we love the most, then matched them with our favourite drinks too.

It’s a sumptuous Japanese feast that’s designed for sharing… and designed to win the heart (or at least get brownie points) of that someone special.

A matched made in heaven we hear you say, so here’s the menu…
