Celebrate Valentine’s Day with meals full of love

Posted: Feb 10, 2021 2 minute read Monica Wijayanthy 197 views

There are so many ways to express love for those we care about. There are five love languages that humans commonly practice: words of affirmation, quality time, gifts, acts of service, and physical touch. Every February, in the ‘month of love’, people usually distribute flowers, chocolates, or greeting cards. This year why not try something different at home? Serve up some delicious and nutritious meals for your boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, or children. A cooking activity like that even covers all five love languages at once!

The Snack Generator, a simple interactive online game from Sinar Mas Agribusiness and Food, is here to give you a variety of interesting cooking ideas that will stimulate your appetite. There are 20 written and video recipes (all containing palm oil), from appetisers to mains, and even desserts. There is no need to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a fancy place this year. In fact, with many social distancing measures still in place, enjoying homemade food with your loved ones in the comfort of your homes can be a luxury in itself. The following are three dishes that you can make:

Crispy appetiser: Fried Shrimp Balls
Succulent shrimp enveloped in puffs of bread make a savoury appetiser. These crunchy treats make a great appetiser or snack when you’re hungry. In addition to the easy-to-get ingredients, this recipe is also simple to make with your family at home. 


A specialty from cherry blossom country: Japanese Katsu Chicken Curry
Have a lot of time at home? Then you can definitely try your hand at making this special dish on Valentine’s Day. Slices of chicken covered in crispy crumbs served with an appetizing Japanese curry sauce make this dish a standout. It is best enjoyed with warm rice. Be prepared to receive compliments on your extra efforts. Print the recipe here.

Love so sweet: Chocolate Pancakes
Valentine’s is synonymous with chocolate and who doesn’t love chocolate? This time, make it in a different way – because nothing says love like the combination of fluffy pancakes and chocolate. This recipe is so simple that you’ll be making it repeatedly. Watch the full recipe video here.

The Snack Generator game is part of Filma’s Love Action Campaign. Filma’s cooking oil and margarine products, a mainstay of Sinar Mas Agribusiness and Food, come from sustainably managed palm oil plantations in Indonesia. Filma’s high-quality products have been here to meet the nutritional and nutritional needs of Indonesian families for more than twenty years.

So have you decided on what you will cook on 14 February? Happy Valentine’s Day!
