The Captivating Culinary Delights of Saint Germain Catering

5 Foodie-Themed Valentine’s Day Gifts (Catering Company-Approved)

Roses are red, violets are blue, this Valentine’s Day surprise him or her with something new! Bouquets won’t live forever, and cards are a dime a dozen, but these foodie-themed gifts are exactly what the culinary enthusiast in your life secretly wants, and they’re all catering company-approved.

1. Salt, Spice and Everything Nice

If you’re lucky enough to have a significant other who loves to experiment with new and exotic seasonings, add to their arsenal with a bundle of spices. Pick a theme and assemble a handful of containers to keep the gift cohesive; tuck cinnamon, turmeric, cayenne, cumin, saffron, aniseed and ginger into a bundle, and you have the makings of a delicious Moroccan meal. Another surprise for the foodie who has (almost) everything? Salt! Most people have kosher and sea salt in their kitchen, but smoked salt, pink salt and black lava salt are new additions packed with flavor.

2. Quirky Chocolates

Most people limit their chocolate purchases to impulse buys in the grocery store checkout line, but those mass-produced treats don’t have the “it factor” a Valentine’s Day gift needs to have. Wrap up something infinitely more intriguing with artisanal chocolates that are both delicious and startling, usually in a good way.

3. Heart-Shaped Kitchen Gadgets

You might not win over your special someone with a practical present like an ironing board or a vacuum cleaner, but some gifts can be both pragmatic and fun. If you’re in need of a new kitchen gadget, give it a Valentine’s Day twist. Heart-shaped pancakes and sassy aprons are useful year-round, which keeps your thoughtful surprise top of mind long after roses have wilted and been thrown away.

4. DIY Culinary Kits

Experience can be the greatest gift. That’s just one reason why DIY kits are more popular than ever. Why give something premade when you can band together and create sumptuous truffles or botanic-infused booze? It’s adventure and edible excitement rolled into one, and that’s hard to beat.

There’s a reason Valentine’s Day is now as “amateur night” among hospitality professionals. Huge crowds of people descend on eateries in two-by-two fashion, pushing kitchens to the limit and forcing chefs to cope by assembling accessible tasting menus that allow little room for personalization. And with that many people stuffed into a dining room, forget any quiet conversations. As an alternative, treat your sweet to a Complete SGC Catered Valentine’s Day Evening. This all-inclusive dinner for two consists of:

  • Half-dozen SGC Valentine’s Day Cupcakes
  • A Dozen Roses with Vase
  • Tempting Three-Course Dinner for Two
  • All Table Linens, Silverware, China and Glassware
  • Professional SGC Server for Setup, Service and Cleanup

You’ll get to enjoy an incredible spread prepared in the privacy of your own home, where you and your beloved can canoodle, sample the culinary magic and not waste a single second worrying about reservations or disappointing surf and turf.

Let your romantic side rule the day this February with a delicious gift your loved one will never forget. Saint Germain has several Valentine’s Day catering company specials, so you can pick the option that works best for you.
