Just because we're in lockdown, it doesn't mean that you can't celebrate the Lunar New Year properly. As the Year of the Ox dawns, here are the restaurants that are pulling special meals together.
Yauatcha (London-wide delivery, available throughout Feb)
They're introducing the Oxtail Puff for CNY, a version of the famous venison puff. There's also a new Pineapple Pastry with an ox design on top and the Firecracker - designed to look like a firework and made with yzu caramel, Szechuan chantilly, roasted hazelnut, madeleine sponge and coated popping candy. All those will be part of their Chinese new year menu (£68 per person).
