Let’s make whoopee! (or at least some sushi)
Five ideas for Valentine's Day from sushi for two, to a spooky graveyard tour...
Sushi making for two
Get rolling! An expert chef will show you how to choose and cut the freshest fish and make seven different kinds of sushi, like salmon nigiri, kasio gunjan and avocado maki. You’ll learn how to make the perfect sushi rice too. Take home your box of sushi, a rolling mat, a guide to sushi making and a voucher off your next sushi dinner. £50 for two. Contact your local Yo Sushi to book a class.
Love beyond the grave
A spooky guided tour around a Victorian graveyard, hearing about forbidden love, secret love signs and love beyond the grave – then a screening of Tim Burton’s The Corpse Bride in the candlelit Anglican Chapel. You can buy booze. Love beyond the grave’, Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bristol, Weds 14 Feb
A Middle Eastern lovers’ feast
A Levantine Valentine dinner – mezze, vodka-marinated gravalax, lamb tagine, spiced duck breast with star anise, salads, baklava, chocolate and cardamon pots….shall I go on?
