This uniquely San Francisco flavored package delivered by two Bay Area start-ups: Bloomspot and Kitchit.

This Valentine’s Day, one pair of lucky lovers can indulge in an ultimate Valentine’s Day experience that puts a luxurious spin on the conventional dinner date. With a $25,000 price tag, a romantic coastal setting, and a roster of celebrity names—including Michelin-starred Saison Chef Joshua Skenes, San Francisco’s beloved Lori Baker of Baker & Banker, famed sommelier Rajat Parr, and celebrated florist Natalie Bowen—this is a package for the truly indulgent romantic! The Ultimate Valentine’s Day experience is available for purchase at 6am PST Wednesday, February 1st at Bloomspot.

In true Bay Area style, this package resulted from the partnership of two San Francisco start-ups: Kitchit, which connects the world's best chefs with the most discerning diners for exclusive private events and Bloomspot, the best place for sophisticated shoppers to discover the best their city has to offer.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience includes:

  •     One Night In A Luxurious Home Overlooking The Romantic Big Sur Coast

Upon their arrival, breathtaking ocean views capture their complete attention even before they can enter the custom iron gates that give entrance to this truly amazing property. A beautiful home that sits on six acres of Big Sur’s premium hillside, slopes down to a private oceanfront. This unique property features an outdoor yoga area complete with showers, copper tubs, dry sauna and breathtaking water views. An amphitheater with fire ring sits boldly on an outcropping that gives more spectacular views in all directions.

  •     Intimate Couples Massage

Guests are invited to ease in to the luxury awaiting them. A couple’s massage? A soak in a pair of cliff-side copper tubs? Perhaps an aperitif as they take the wooden stairs down to the private beach? We suggest all of the above to build up an appetite for the gastronomic adventure that’s about to begin.

  •     Dinner For Two by Chef Joshua Skenes, Of 2-Star Michelin Restaurant Saison

Surrounded by the floral designs of Natalie Bowen, guests will be treated to a personal eight-course meal created by Chef Josh Skenes. Celebrated for his ability to craft food that allows diners to experience the nature of each ingredient's origin, layering flavors to bring out the fullest expression of their taste. Among his many accolades, Josh Skenes was named Best New Chef 2011 from Food & Wine, Best Chef 2011 from San Francisco Magazine, and earned Two Michelin Stars for Saison.

  •     Wines by Michael Mina Group Sommelier Rajat Parr

The wine accompanying the chef’s meal will be selected and poured by Rajat Parr, award-winning sommelier of the Michael Mina Group. Having worked together before, Joshua and Rajat are joining forces to create a meal that won’t soon be forgotten. Parr is a master of his craft, hailed by Food & Wine as “one of America’s most respected sommeliers”, winner of the 2010 Grand Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator; and winner of the 2011 James Beard Cookbook Award - Beverage Category for his book, “Secrets of the Sommelier.”

  •     Brunch by Baker & Banker Pastry Chef Lori Baker

The next morning, the culinary indulgence continues with the appearance of chef Lori Baker, of the critically acclaimed restaurant and bakery, Baker & Banker. Her brunch is sure to provide a comforting (but equally memorable) counter-point to the delicacies of dinner. Baker & Banker was cited by Travel + Leisure as one of the reasons that San Francisco is one of America's Best Cities for Foodies and named one of the San Francisco Chronicle’s 2011 Top 100 Bay Area’s Best Restaurants.

The rest of the morning is free to enjoy before the limousine returns to escort guests (gently back) reality.

This exclusive package will be available at 6am on Wednesday, Feb 1 2012 at a Bloomspot price of $25,000 at
