With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Home-X has announced the next series of menus that will bring back some feeling of normality to date nights.
Home-X, spearheaded by Chef Nico Simeone and Six by Nico marketing guru Michael Sim, introduces new brand Lobster Inc to the e-commerce platform along with new themed menus from Home by Nico, Green Haus, Chateau-X and The Cheese Club.
Available to pre-order from 19 January for February delivery, Lobster Inc is an exquisite meal for two, offering a truly fine dining experience using only the best premium quality native Lobster, dressed and ready to enjoy with sides and a bottle of bubbly.
Each Lobster Inc box will include two whole Lobsters, served with a Vietnamese dressing plus two side dishes including a Warm Parmentier Potato Salad and Asian Style Noodle Salad with Cucumber, Chilli and Coriander.
The course will be perfectly paired with a bottle of Montresor Prosecco Millesimato Extra Dry from Veneto, Italy. Lobster Inc will change monthly, and will take inspiration from a mixture of flavour profiles each month to bring a new twist to a lobster experience. Lobster Inc is priced at £85 and includes UK national delivery.
Home by Nico - 'Cooking The Hebrides'
In a nod to their Scottish roots, Home by Nico will be “Cooking The Hebrides” – a celebration of food from the breath-taking Scottish Hebrides throughout February, allowing home cooks around the UK to recreate the Six by Nico experience at home.
The Hebrides menu starts with the Isle of Harris Gin Cured Smoke Salmon, with cucumber and apple chutney and dill crème fraîche, followed by the main course; Stornoway Black Pudding & Pork Belly Pressé with Scotch broth and white bean ragu, along with a side of Warm Potato Salad and Shellfish Rouille and Salt Baked Beetroot with Hebridean blue cheese and walnut dressing.
For dessert, there will be Tipsy Laird Trifle with stem ginger jelly, sea buckthorn and vanilla cream, followed by Mull Cheddar cheese with onion and tamarind relish and water crackers. All dishes will be paired with a bottle of Séptimo Sentido Verdejo from Castilla-La Mancha, Spain. A vegetarian option is also available. Home by Nico is priced at £60 and includes UK national delivery.

With a pledge to be more sustainable, ethical, healthier and cleaner, Green Haus: Volume 3 will serve eight new vegan dishes (pictured). These include:

The Green Haus menu will also come with a bottle of Bodegas Alceño Barinas Sauvignon Blanc from Jumilla, Spain. Green Haus is priced at £55 and includes UK national delivery.
HOME-X’s finest Chateau-X experience has been revamped with an unusual twist on the dry-aged chateaubriand. For this limited edition, the team have created a treacle cured chateaubriand which has been marinated for 48 hours, leading to a subtle cure that allows the chateaubriand to take in the depth and smokiness of the treacle - making the meat succulent and the caramelisation process even easier to achieve at home.
Chateau-X will be served with two new sides; Colcannon Potatoes and four cheese Macaroni & Cheese with Smoked Bone Marrow Crumb; and finished with a classic Tiramisu for dessert. The full-bodied Montresor ‘Urban Park’ Appassimento wine from Veneto, Italy, will help pull through the unmissable flavours of every course. Chateau-X is priced at £70 and includes UK national delivery.
The Cheese Club
Lastly, The Cheese Club has been elevated to include a new selection of seven artisan cheeses (150g each), accompanied by crackers, hand-made chutney and paired with half a bottle of a rich sweet white port.
The box will include the spongy and moist Ogleshield from Somerset; the traditional buttery and smooth Westcombe Cheddar; the rich and creamy Colston Bassett Stilton from Nottinghamshire; the crumbly and fresh Gorwydd Caerphilly from Somerset; Inglewhite Goat’s Cheese from Lancashire; smooth Berkswell from West Midlands and the sharp and tangy Dorset Blue Vinny cheese.
This month’s Cheese Club offering is paid with a Domaine l’ermitage ‘Le Muscat’ from France. The Cheese Club is priced at £50 and includes UK national delivery.
