While a night out on the town isn’t possible at the moment, that doesn’t mean you have to skip date night altogether. Get a little competition going and host your own version of Chopped, or take turns alternating and preparing resort-level meals at home.

Check out these luxury vacation-inspired recipes:

First up, cocktails. Create your own Heavy-Handed Gin and Tonic like the one you’d enjoy at Whiteface Lodge’s KANU, located in Lake Placid, New York.

For the appetizer, start your night with a cucumber zucchini salad with hearts of palm, as you’d find on the menu at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona. It’s simple, light and refreshing.

Prime Delmonico, from the Tap Room at Pebble Beach Resorts in Pebble Beach, California, offers a great excuse to fire up the grill. This recipe requires little more than a prime cut, salt, pepper and a grill.

Don’t forget the sides, with potato broccoli gratin with garlic, just like Gaby Brasserie Française’s at Sofitel New York in New York City. Bulk up the side dish to serve as a main for vegetarians or enjoy paired with your steak.

On to dessert, create your own key lime tart, using the flavors of Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa at Riviera Beach, Florida. You can basically taste the Floridian sunset with this one.

Athens: A city that charms its guests and stirs their emotions

The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
