Pea and ham soup

Feta and greens gozleme

A lot of rolling and folding go into making this Turkish flatbread, but when you bite into them all the hard work will be forgotten. The traditional filling is silverbeet, but we've added kale and fresh herbs for fragrance and flavour. A good sprinkle of salt at the end and a squeeze of lemon are non-negotiable. Start this recipe a day ahead to rest the dough.

Fried custard with vanilla ice-cream and honey


You'll need

1 litre (4 cups) milk 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped Finely grated rind of 1 lemon 10 egg yolks 300 gm caster sugar 50 gm cornflour, sieved 50 gm plain flour, sieved, plus extra for dusting 2 eggs, lightly beaten 180 gm (4 cups) fine fresh white breadcrumbs For shallow-frying: vegetable oil To serve: good-quality vanilla ice-cream and chestnut honey (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Combine milk, vanilla bean and seeds and lemon rind in a saucepan over medium heat and bring just to the boil. Remove from heat and set aside. Meanwhile, whisk yolks and sugar until pale, add cornflour and flour, whisk to combine. Strain milk mixture through a fine sieve over yolk mixture, whisking continuously, then strain into a clean pan and stir continuously over low heat until very thick (10-15 minutes). Pour into a 20cm x 30cm baking tray lined with baking paper, smooth top and refrigerate until set (1-2 hours).
  • 02
  • Turn custard onto a board, then cut into 6.5cm x 10cm rectangles, dip in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs, shaking off excess in between. Heat oil 2cm deep until shimmering in a large deep-sided frying pan over medium-high heat, then fry custard in batches, turning once, until golden and warmed through (3-5 minutes; be careful as hot oil may spit). Serve hot with ice-cream, drizzled with honey.
Note Chestnut honey is available from select delicatessens. If unavailable, substitute your favourite honey.
