What’s on the menu?

Unsurprisingly, most of us are using chilli in home cooking, looking for inspiring dinner dishes either sweet or spicy to recreate our favourite global dishes whilst the pleasure of eating out is not on the menu. Of course, for those who are not so adept at scratch cooking but still want to present a special culinary experience there is always the meal kit.

Research carried out by thefoodpeople has shown that hot and fiery continues to be a popular flavour profile and it is being delivered in many kit forms from Jerk, Katsu curry, Korean BBQ and plenty more. The influx of kits means that there is now no excuse for not being able to serve up a restaurant quality meal at home whether that is an authentic Thai curry or a fiery Mexican fajita from your local restaurant or off the shelf.

The perfect couple

Of course, Valentine’s would not be complete without chocolate and there is no better pairing than chilli and chocolate, so why not end the evening in comfort with a selection box and a warming hot chilli chocolate.

And if flowers aren’t available there is always the option of a bunch of chillies! Valentine’s Day might only be one day but the heat is always on in the #HitchenKitchen, discover the whole range available today.
