A Valentine’s Day Spent Together
Part pleasure, part panic – this is the one Holiday sure to get everyone’s hearts a-flutter.
But this year we’ve been thinking about V-Day a little differently.
These past few years have been tough, lockdowns put everything on hold, separated people from their families, and somehow turned a ten-minute drive into a long-distance relationship – so this year, Nomad recommends going beyond your usual dozen roses and instead giving the gift we have all been yearning for: some quality time together.
We also recommend extending this gift to all your relations, romantic or not, because everyone deserves a little love after everything we’ve been through.
So, without further ado, here are two ways to make everyone you know wish they were your Valentine all year round!
Turn things into a group affair this Valentine’s Day by inviting a special someone, or a few friends, to embark on a journey to deliciousness, all inside your kitchen!
If you’re hurting for recipes, we can’t pretend that we don’t have a few certified winners to share:
The Nomad Chocolate Mud Cake will please everyone with its rich chocolate flavour, and because it is 100% vegan no one will be left out of the tasting process.
Gather your ingredients, including Nomad’s Chocolate Mocha Latte and West Africa 45% Dark, preheat the oven, pick out your favourite garnishes, and you’ll be enjoying a rich treat with your favourite people within the hour!
For those chasing the flavour with a little more urgency, nothing compares to Chocolate Bark for ease and speed of preparation.
All you need is Nomad’s Dark Chocolate Buttons 72% Dark, a handful of your favourite toppings, and about half an hour and you’ll all be munching through some delicious dark chocolate!
A Perfect Picnic
What better way to embrace the summer weather than enjoying a relaxing outdoor meal with the people closest to you?
It requires a little bit of planning, but taking the care to prepare is a beautifully thoughtful way to make sure your picnic-partners know how much you appreciate them. So, grab your basket, your best hat, and your favourite pair of sunnies and get ready for some (plausibly social-distanced) fun in the outdoors!
Choose a destination, it could be a nearby park, a picturesque beach, or a stop on your favourite local walk, and get comfortable.
We can’t, of course, recommend a picnic without covering a few of the necessities. First, a sturdy blanket, like the Moontide Blanket from Seljak, made in Australia, this blanket is carbon-neutral, closed loop, and sustainably made. Second, to keep the good vibes going, a portable speaker, like Blue Ant’s X0 Mini, with enough battery-life to get you there and back again. And finally, a tasty treat to warm the heart – this is especially easy if you’ve recently turned your kitchen into a romantic pop-up bakery!
One thing we wouldn’t dare suggest, however, is that you bring a nice bottle of wine or two to pair with your meal.Nadja
