Whether you’re planning a quiet dinner at home or snagged the hottest reservation in town, you really can’t go wrong with any scenario that involves good food on the 14th. We’ve partnered with celebrated chef John Besh to create the ultimate V-day plan: a candlelit meal and a surprise subscription to Besh Box! We captured the lovely Anna as she preps for a romantic evening with her honey (and for those of you wondering, her fictional “home” is set at Josephine House, one of our favorite spots in town.) Read more to discover why we think Chef Besh’s curated boxes are pretty much the best gifts ever for foodies and aspiring cooks alike…

Anna wraps up a Besh Box in anticipation of her Valentine’s arrival. Inside each monthly delivery is an inspired collection created by Chef Besh himself, made up of his favorite recipes, helpful tools, amazing ingredients, as well as a few tips and ideas to make your next meal a home run.

Anna preps dough for the strawberry shortcakes that will make their appearance post-dinner… She’ll recruit her date to help her put the finishing touches on dessert.


One of the things we love about the Besh Box is that it helps build a fully-equipped kitchen over time. Throughout the months to come, subscribers will collect a serious supply of chef’s tools, like this dough scraper from the holiday box!


Fresh white roses in a simple brass vase add a touch of modern romance to this table for two.

Vintage china and rose gold flatware make for a sweet and feminine tabletop.

Why not order your Valentine a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month subscription? Just hop on over to place the order, then print out our custom card insert for the perfect way to present a surprise subscription. An added bonus? You’ll get a $10 gift card to Williams-Sonoma with any subscription purchase of 3-months or longer.

The custom card, tied with bright red ribbon, is the perfect finishing touch to a pretty place setting.

Anna mounted her card onto a blush enclosure envelope for a luxe presentation.

It’s the most flattering light there is and always sets an intimate mood — we’ll take any excuse to dine by candlelight!

This is the kind of gift we love to give because it’s all about spending time together and making memories in the kitchen. A Besh Box subscription is an ideal gift for guys (and gals) who already love to cook as well as guys who simply want to cook. And the best part? You’ll be enjoying the rewards throughout the year with inspired home cooked meals you prepared together!

The surprises don’t end there. We’re excited to announce that Besh Box has offered an exclusive giveaway opportunity to our readers: leave a comment below describing your favorite meal to cook for two and the winner (chosen at random) will enjoy a free 6-month subscription to Besh Box! Good luck and happy Valentine’s Day…
