The most romantic day of the year is upon us: Valentine’s Day officially arrives in less than six hours!

Unfortunately, in Guangzhou and other major Chinese cities, the Feast of Saint Valentine will not be celebrated with as much gusto as previous years, due to ongoing disease prevention and control measures aimed at curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

But just because you can’t leave your apartment doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a delicious meal with someone special… Below, we present you with three easy recipes that you can prepare at home to impress your special someone. 

A big thanks to the team at Slow Life Kitchen Elite for sharing their secret recipes with our readers and for participating in the preparation video below! (See the bottom of this post for a helpful step-by-step cooking video.)
