Overnight pork shoulder with fennel

There's something super-comforting about cooking overnight - you wake up in the morning to the fragrant dish, ready for a long lazy lunch ahead. Some bread, mustard and a leafy salad are all you need to serve with this beautiful cut, which is ideal for slow-cooking, but a potato or cauliflower puree would also be a welcome addition.

Greek Easter bread Tsoureki

Yes, it's laden with tradition and symbolism, but tsoureki is also a really tasty treat, writes Bianca Tzatzagos.

East Indian Expedition


You'll need

30 ml vodka (see note) 10 ml tamarind water (see note) ½ small hot red chilli, finely sliced, plus extra to garnish 15 ml lime juice 5 ml sugar syrup (see note) Pinch of ground cumin seeds

Method

  • 01
  • Add all ingredients to a shaker or bar glass half-filled with ice, shake hard and fast and strain into a teacup. Add a few ice cubes and sliced chilli to garnish if desired and serve.
Note Bax uses 42 Below vodka. For tamarind water, soak a piece of tamarind paste, available at supermarkets and Asian food stores, in hot water, then strain into a bowl, discarding solids. To make sugar syrup, combine an equal quantity of sugar and water in a saucepan and boil or simmer to dissolve. One cup each of sugar and water will make 1½ cups of syrup, and if sealed will keep indefinitely in the fridge.

“The original 20s sherry-based ‘East India’ cocktail was a very different affair but I still think the colonists would approve of my homage to Eastern cuisine.” – Matt Bax
