If there was ever a brilliant excuse to do something a little special in lockdown, it has to be Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re baking for your sweetheart at home or want to deliver a lovely treat to your nearest and dearest, I’ve rounded up some ideas to brighten up your weekend. Lemon Basil Almond Drizzle Cake This cake is a firm favourite from East by West (page 95). This is a lighter take on a classic lemon drizzle, with a beautiful freshness from the basil. It’s made using a base of ground almonds and tapioca. Chocolate Raspberry Muffin Volcanoes The ultimate Valentine’s Day recipe, these muffin volcanoes are ooey-gooey and oh so delicious.

2. Melt the butter or ghee in a saucepan, add the anchovies, parsley and cayenne and cook gently until the anchovies dissolve into the butter.

3. Add the crème fraîche, 250 ml water and the garlic and slowly bring to the boil. Lower the heat and gently simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until reduced by half, then blend.

4. Test a crudité in the mixture to check the consistency. If the flavour isn’t intense enough, then simmer a little longer to reduce and thicken.

5. Serve in a warm dish over a candle or in a fondue pot, swirling through the extra virgin olive oil kept earlier from the anchovies. If the sauce begins to separate, give it a little whisk.

6. Dip the vegetables into the Bagna Cauda and enjoy!
