Anzac biscuit desserts

These four desserts have one thing in common – Anzac biscuits.

Persian red lentil soup with tahini, beetroot and fried mint

Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.

Six sexy panna cottas

We say si to these six takes on the Italian classic. From coffee and caramel to red wine and figs, panna cotta proves to be a versatile dessert to suit all palettes.

Eclair recipes

Here are four spins on the classic French eclair, from Flour & Stone's pillowy choux pastry with salted caramel to a colourful take with strawberry-flecked creme fraiche filling and sprinkled pistachios on top.

Gourmet Traveller's Morocco tour

Join Gourmet Traveller deputy editor and seasoned traveller Pat Nourse on an unique journey, in collaboration with luxury travel specialist Abercrombie & Kent.

Few destinations are as intoxicating as Morocco. A blend of Arabic, African and European infl uences, the North African nation is the very definition of a melting pot - a pot shaped like a multicoloured tagine. This bespoke odyssey, meticulously designed as an exclusive small-group tour, focuses on the nation's culinary, cultural and architectural marvels.

Pat Nourse, Gourmet Traveller's deputy editor, will join you for part of this journey where you will explore bazaars, medieval cities, mountainscapes and desert oases. You'll experience authentic cuisine, with hands-on demonstrations by local experts, majestic medinas, historic sites, and discerning lodgings, including enchanting riads.

The country is also legendary for its artisanal crafts, from Berber rugs to amber jewellery. By the end of the tour, the exuberant sights, sounds and colours of Morocco will be indelibly woven into your memory.
