Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Salmon roe mayonnaise with fried homemade filo pastries


You'll need

60 gm plain flour, plus extra for dusting 500 ml (2 cups) olive oil, for deep-frying   Salmon roe mayonnaise 2 tbsp strained lemon juice, or to taste 1 small garlic clove, finely grated 150 gm salmon roe 125 ml (½ cup) light olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Combine flour, 30ml water and a pinch of sea salt in a bowl. Knead until smooth, then wrap in plastic wrap and stand at room temperature for 1 hour to rest (the dough needs to be soft so the filo can be thinly rolled).
  • 02
  • Preheat oil in a deep-fryer or deep-sided saucepan to 180C. Halve dough and, working with one half at a time, dust with flour and roll through a pasta machine, folding and rolling and reducing settings notch by notch until you reach the last setting and dough is 1mm thick (dust with extra flour as you go to avoid sticking; alternatively, you can roll the dough using a thin rolling pin). Keep dough covered with a damp cloth while you roll the other half, then cut sheets widthways into 16cm x 4cm strips and deep-fry in batches until golden (3-4 minutes). Drain on absorbent paper. Makes about 32. Filo pastries will keep stored in an airtight container for 3 days.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for salmon roe mayonnaise, combine lemon juice, garlic, 50gm salmon roe, 40ml water and a pinch of freshly ground white pepper in a blender. Process until smooth, then, with motor running, add olive oil, drop by drop at first, then in a thin steady stream until completely incorporated and mixture is thick and emulsified. Transfer to a bowl, cover with remaining salmon roe and serve with filo pastries for dipping.
This recipe is from the March 2010 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“An egg is an egg is an egg,” Kyritsis says. “Greek taramasalata is also a mayonnaise made from egg, lemon and oil. In this recipe, I use salmon roe. It’s always been a matter of family pride that our taramasalata was the smoothest of all. Commercial filo is a fine product, but most of the time I make my own because its texture is so much better.”
