Anzac biscuit desserts

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

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.

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.

Braised artichokes with asparagus and pecorino


You'll need

1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and peeled 100 gm mixed baby cress 50 gm pistachios, blanched and peeled 2 lemons, juice only 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve 80 gm pecorino, shaved   Braised artichokes 300 ml dry white wine 300 ml olive oil 3 lemons, juice only 1 small carrot, coarsely chopped 1 celery stalk, coarsely chopped 1 small onion, coarsely chopped 4 flat-leaf parsley sprigs 2 thyme sprigs 5 white peppercorns 1 tsp fennel seeds 12 small globe artichokes

Method

  • 01
  • For braised artichokes, combine all ingredients (except artichokes) and 1 litre water in a large saucepan. Remove outer leaves from artichokes until you reach the tender inner leaves, then trim tops and peel down stalks to remove the tough, stringy outer layer and add immediately to liquid. Cover closely with a round of baking paper and weight with a plate to completely submerge artichokes. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat, reduce heat to low and cook until just soft enough for a skewer to press easily through the centre (7-10 minutes). Remove from heat, cool artichokes in liquid, then remove with a slotted spoon. Halve lengthways, remove hairy choke using a teaspoon and return to liquid until needed.
  • 02
  • Blanch asparagus in boiling salted water until tender (1-2 minutes). Drain, refresh in iced water, drain again and set aside.
  • 03
  • Combine asparagus, baby cress and pistachios in a bowl. Add drained artichokes, lemon juice and oil. Season to taste and toss with your hands to combine. Scatter with pecorino, drizzle with extra oil and serve immediately with the Sbagliato Carafe, grilled octopus, prosciutto and crusty bread.
