Hi there! I am from South Africa and want to treat my fiance to a lovely dinner on Valentine's Day. He loves pork chops and crackling. Do you have any suggestions for something nice? Thanks

I am based in the USA and am planning to cook the Chocolate Raspberry Heart cake from Feast (p139) but wanted to clarify what you mean by 'best unsweetened cocoa'. Is this just plain old cocoa powder? The reason I ask is that I recently made the Chocolate Orange Cake (also from Feast, p274), which also called for unsweetened cocoa. I used Trader Joe's unsweetened cocoa powder and the cake came out considerably lighter in colour than the picture but quite bitter. Should I be using one of the Dutch processed cocoa powders - e.g., Droste's Cocoa for baking and drinking? Alternatively, I could buy Ghirardelli premium baking cocoa. Thank you!
