Lovin’ and the Oven

January 26, 2021 (Vancouver, BC) – Wise people know that the way to the heart is through the stomach. That’s why Hart House is offering two sumptuous menus for Valentine’s Day this year: one for in-person dining, as well as a convenient take-out option.
 
The Hart House Valentine’s Take-Out Kit for Two is an easy way to impress your sweetheart with your culinary prowess. It includes pre-cooked prawn skewers and braised short ribs in red wine jus that to heat up at home, as well as roasted marble potatoes, seasonal vegetables, an antipasto platter, and chocolate strawberry tiramisu cake for dessert. It’s also easy to add a bottle (or two) of table wine or bubbly to your order, saving a trip to a retail shop.
 
If you prefer to treat your sweetheart to dinner in the elegant surroundings of Hart House’s lakeside estate, the restaurant’s dining room will be serving a deluxe Valentine’s Day menu on the 14th.
