I’m not one of those who go overboard with holidays that celebrate something we should cherish every single day, such as love. For us, Valentine’s day is just another opportunity to spend some precious time together and do something that we both like. Big foodies as we are, we love cooking together and have fun in the kitchen. I won’t deceive you, his help is more similar to standing beside me and taking small orders, but he’s trying very hard and I love that ♥ (he also cooked the fish entirely by himself and please, do admit that it looks tasty!).
We decided to make something healthy, something we wouldn’t do every single day, so we went for rockfish and sweet potato wedges with vegetable noodles on the side. For dessert, I recreated Nigela Lawson’s molten chocolate babycakes, which is just the best and the easiest dessert ever! I also love that you can make it in advance and put it in the oven when it suits you best. I used the 75 % dark chocolate and just a hint of honey, the chocolate itself is so rich that any additional sugar would just make it overpowering. I also added hot sour cherries and whipped cream, it was just dreamy!
