And with 27 new and improved products included in this year’s range, from flavoursome meat, fish and vegan options, as well as refreshing tipples, the Finest Valentine’s Day Dinner for Two is sure to provide a delightful dining occasion for loved ones to relish – minus the restaurant price tag.
To kick off a special Valentine’s meal, shoppers can enjoy the classic French starter Tesco Finest Coquilles St Jaques - succulent scallops in a creamy mature Cheddar cheese and white wine sauce, sprinkled with a golden crisp crumb. For alternative diets, there is a choice of vegan options such as the Tesco Finest Mushroom Arancini with Black Garlic Dip - fried Italian rice balls stuffed with mushrooms and served with a rich and sweet garlic dipping sauce.
Surprising loved ones is easy this Valentine’s Day with a maximum quality meal, minus the fuss. New additions to the mains include guaranteed favourites such as the tender Tesco Finest Slow Cooked Duck Legs that are coated in a morello cherry hoisin sauce, the Tesco Finest Coq Au Vin or the Tesco Finest Ranch Steak, drizzled with smooth Béarnaise butter. This year also sees a new vegan main added to the line-up, the Tesco Finest Harissa Butternut Galette, a hand-crafted golden crispy filo tart filled with harissa spiced butternut squash, chickpeas, chestnuts and dried cranberries – serving up a blend of moreish flavours to the table.
Shoppers can enjoy vegetable-based sides such as the Tesco Finest Creamed Spinach and the Tesco Finest Green Vegetable Selection. This year sees the inclusion of a much-loved traditional accompaniment, a smooth and fluffy, Tesco Finest Creamy, Buttery Mash that will complement any meal. For something a little more decadent, customers can opt for the Tesco Finest Hasselback Potatoes, partially sliced potatoes coated in a garlic and herb marinade and finished with a garlic and parsley butter.
Rounding off the culinary experience is a selection of delicious chocolate or fruity desserts to choose from, including the new Tesco Finest Belgian Chocolate Cubes with Raspberry Compote – two rich chocolate cubes filled with a hidden raspberry centre – and the Tesco Finest Mango & Passionfruit Meringue Clouds, two marbled meringues filled with a tropical Crème Pâtissière.
Raise a toast with the Finest Prosecco Valdobbiadene, a sparkling wine with flavours of ripe pear and white peach. Beer drinkers can pick up a 4-pack of Peroni, and those looking for no or low alcohol options can celebrate the occasion with the Nozeco Rose or the deliciously fragrant Bottle Green sparkling pressé in Crisp Apple and Elderflower.
