What you need:

2 sweet potatoes (yams)  cut into chunks
250g potatoes, cut into chunks
500g white fish fillets
1 red chilli, finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
100g polenta ( or breadcrumbs)
4 tbsp olive oil

What you do:

Place all of the potatoes in a pan of cold, salted water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes, until tender. Drain, mash, and set aside to cool.

In the meantime, put the fish fillets in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, then turn off the heat and leave to cook for 6-8 minutes.

Remove the fish fillets from the water, drain and flake into the mashed potato. Stir 1 red chilli and 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander into the mixture, then adjust the seasoning to taste.

Shape the mixture into 8-10 balls, flatten them slightly and chill until ready to cook.

Place the polenta (or breadcrumbs) on a plate and roll the fishcakes in it, to coat. Heat 4 tbsp olive oil in a pan and fry the fishcakes for 4-5 minutes each side, until golden and piping hot.

What you need :

9 1/2oz / 265g of plain chocolate
9 fl oz / 250 ml water
4 tbsp sugar ( optional)
some ice & cold water ( for mixing)

What you do:

Place ice and cold water into a mixing bowl , then place another mixing bowl on top of that (to keep ingredients cold & chilled).
In a saucepan, break up the chocolate into small pieces. Add the water & sugar (if using), and place saucepan over a medium heat whisking sometimes.
When the chocolate is all melted, take the saucepan off the heat and pour the mixture into the mixing bowl that’s been chilling .
With a whisk , start mixing until the mixture until it starts thickening and resembling whipped cream.
Continue whisking until it thickens more, (but be careful not to over whisk).

Divide mixture into stemmed glasses, decorate with whipped cream and chocolate or heart shaped sweets and serve.
You can pipe the word ‘love’ with a little of melted chocolate onto grease proof paper and leave to set in fridge. Carefully peel off the paper and place onto the whipped cream.
