Grilled apricot salad with jamon and Manchego

Here we've scorched apricots on the grill and served them with torn jamon, shaved Manchego and peppery rocket leaves. Think of it as a twist on the good old melon-prosciutto routine. The mixture would also be great served on charred sourdough.

Farro can be used in almost any dish, from a robust salad to accompany hearty beer-glazed beef short ribs to a new take on risotto with mushrooms, leek and parmesan. Here are 14 ways with this versatile grain.

Pea and ham soup

Aløft

There's nothing new about Nordic interiors - blond timbers, concrete surfaces, warm, mid-century charm without the twee - and thank heavens for that. It's a style that augments the beauty of everything around it, in this case, gorgeous Hobart harbour, which makes up one whole wall. What is new here, however, is the food - by veterans of Garagistes, which once dazzled diners down the road, Vue de Monde in Melbourne and Gordon Ramsay worldwide. There's a strong Asian bent, but with Tasmanian ingredients. In fact, the kitchen's love of the local verges on obsessive - coconut milk in an aromatic fish curry is replaced with Tasmanian-grown fig leaf simmered in cream to mimic the flavour. Other standouts include a gutsy red-braised lamb with gai lan and chewy cassia spaetzle, pigs' ears zingy with Sichuan pepper and a fresh, springy berry dessert. While the food is sourced locally, the generous wine list spans the planet. 

Pork and pineapple tacos


You'll need

¼ pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped 8 cooked tortillas   Pineapple-marinated pork 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 tsp chopped canned chipotle chilli in adobo 190 ml fresh pineapple juice 25 ml white vinegar ½ tsp ground cumin 2 tbsp coarsely chopped fresh oregano ½ tsp sweet paprika 500 gm pork neck, thinly sliced and cut into 3cm strips 25 ml canola oil   Green salsa 2 tbsp finely chopped green capsicum ¾ tsp finely chopped long green chill, seeds removed 1 tsp finely chopped onion ½ green tomato 1/3 cup coriander 2 tsp lime juice Pinch each of salt and caster sugar to taste

Method

  • 01
  • For pineapple-marinated pork, combine garlic, chipotle, pineapple juice, vinegar, cumin, oregano and paprika in a bowl. Add pork and a good pinch salt and stand to marinate for 4 minutes (but no longer or the acid in the juice will break down the pork).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for green salsa, process ingredients in a blender until smooth. Check seasoning and set aside. Makes ½ cup.
  • 03
  • Drain pork, then toss in canola oil. Cook in batches in a char-grill pan over high heat, turning occasionally, until caramelised (1-2 minutes).
  • 04
  • Briefly warm tortillas in a non-stick pan. Place a spoonful of grilled marinated pork on each tortilla, add a few chunks of pineapple and 1-2 teaspoons of green salsa and serve.
