Cook for Him/ Her for Valentine’s Day with Secret Ingredient

20 January 2014-Secret Ingredient, Hong Kong’s first ready-to-cook gourmet delivery service, has launched a Valentine’s Day special meal.

“Cooking is such a romantic experience. Making a delicious meal for loved ones, or having fun cooking with your loved one can really make Valentine’s Day special. This year I designed a dish that is easy-to-cook and outrageously tasty. Everyone knows lobster is a luxurious ingredient, but our truffle butter gives an amazing aroma that take it to another level,” says Secret Ingredient Head Chef Jesse Teh.

The Valentine’s Day menu this year is the luscious Roasted Lobster & Black Truffle Linguini with SI's Side Salad. And of course, a Valentine’s Day dinner is never complete without a decadent dessert to sweeten the moment? ‘Chocolate Mi Cuit Cake with Secret Ingredient’s Berry Compote and Vanilla Tuille’ is paired as a delightful add-on.

“Last year, we sold out our Valentine’s Day Special within the first week of February! We’re so glad we could be a part of so many romantic evenings that we’ve prepared more this year so that others can share the joy of cooking on this special day.” says founder Maximilian Von Poelnitz.

How does it work? Secret Ingredient shops, chops and preps ingredients to a recipe so that you can cook a delicious meal in 30 minutes or less. Simply:

1)  Go to and choose your menu item

2)  Choose home or office delivery (can be same day before 5pm!)

3)  Follow the “Cook by Letter” instructions and in 30 minutes or less…

… A gourmet meal cooked by you!

“As we say, why give a gift when you can give your loved ones an experience they’ll never forget?” says Maximilian.

In addition, the company will launch delivery to nearly 80% of Hong Kong  including Sai Kung, Gold Coast, and Kowloon East.In anticipation of Valentines Day we want to be able to provide more home cooks with an unforgettable experience.
