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.

Five recipes for carrot cake

Whether paired with cream cheese, ginger, orange icing or caramel, carrot cakes are an autumnal sensation. Here are four to try.

Plate of pig (pork pâté with lonza, radishes, cornichons and green Kalamatas)


You'll need

1 onion, finely chopped 40 gm butter, coarsely chopped 1 tbsp olive oil 1 young pig’s liver (about 1kg), soaked overnight in 2 litres milk, drained 700 gm minced pork belly or breast 1 tbsp finely chopped thyme leaves 80 ml brandy To serve: thinly sliced toasted rye bread, thinly sliced lonza, giant green Kalamatas, cornichons and red radishes

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 150C. Sweat the onion in butter and oil until soft and aromatic, but not caramelised (5-10 minutes). Cool, then purée with the liver in a food processor. Fold through minced pork belly or breast, add thyme and brandy and season to taste. Spoon into a buttered 2-litre terrine mould, place in a roasting tray, pour in boiling water to halfway up sides, cover with baking paper and foil and bake until terrine starts to pull away from sides (1-1½ hours). Remove from water bath, cool to room temperature and refrigerate until chilled (3-5 hours). Serve with toasted rye bread, lonza, Kalamatas, cornichons and radishes.

Lonza is dry-cured, sometimes smoked, pork loin. It's softer and more supple than prosciutto; you can find it at Greek delicatessens. Pig's liver is wonderfully savoury. The younger the pig, the cleaner and milder the flavour of the liver, so try to get your hands on suckling pig's liver. You could also add the first of the season's truffles; just slice them as thinly as possible. Leeks can be used in place of onions in this recipe. If you want to slice the terrine before serving, weight it when you put it in the refrigerator overnight. If you prefer to scoop it out, use less minced pork and just chill it. You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.
