If you find yourself eating a delicious, made-with-love home-cooked meal in the comfort of your own kitchen this Valentine's Day, odds are you decided to forgo the restaurant experience for one of these 5 reasons:
1. You're trying to skip the crowds
Valentine's Day and Mother's Day are the two busiest restaurant days of the year. It comes as no surprise that those who prefer a more intimate setting would opt for the chill vibes emitted from a record player, a crackling fireplace, and the gentle steam of a pasta-filled stock pot rather than the hustle and bustle of a fully-booked restaurant.
2. You're trying to impress
This may be the TOP top reason. Valentine's Day is a very popular time for home cooks to strut their culinary stuff and show off their cooking skills in a thoughtful, delicious way. Biting off a tougher recipe than you can chew is common on Valentine's Day, so beware! If you're still in search of the right recipe, look no further than our Contra Kit. This elevated yet approachable 3-recipe meal kit was designed by the Michelin-starred chefs behind NYC hotspot Contra and contains hard-to-find ingredients that are sure to wow.
3. You're not a fan of prix fixe
Are you more of an a la carte person? Like picking and choosing what your heart desires rather than being told what's what? We respect that. We're the same way, actually. A lot of other cookware companies only sell their products in sets; we let you shop product by product a la carte style as well.
4. You love to cook
Simple as that! You cooked the night before Valentine's Day and you'll be cooking again the night after, so it's not like you cooking dinner at home is abnormal. But by no means does you cooking every night mean you'll treat this like a meat and potatoes dinner (unless you decide to cook meat and potatoes, of course). Odds are you're about to ball out with a complex 15-course meal — using all 15 pieces of our Executive Chef cookware set in the process.
5. You forgot to make a reservation
Oh geeze. We've all been there, friend. They ask, "So where did you say we were going again?," and the only response you can think of is the same one I just gave:
Luckily, Made In is here to help save the (Valentine's) day! Whether you...
- Are woefully unprepared for eating in and need The Starter Kit shipped to you overnight (so you can start practicing)...
- Just want to pick up a 12" Blue Carbon Steel Frying Pan to sear the perfect ribeye for two...
- Don't even know where to start...
We've got you covered.
