Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

Christine Manfield recipes

A hotdog is all about the condiments. Here, choose between a smoky red capsicum relish or the bright flavours of chimichurri, or go for a bit of both.

Mascarpone

Sourdough, liver, prune, sage and onion stuffing


"This is a wonderful recipe that gives this meal some added texture," says Strode. "Make sure to cook the stuffing until it's really crisp on top. You can, of course, omit the liver if you wish."

You'll need

500 gm crustless sourdough (from about 1 loaf) 250 gm butter, chopped 1 onion, finely chopped 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 tbsp thyme 120 gm pitted prunes, finely chopped 2 goose or duck livers, trimmed, finely chopped 2 tbsp thinly sliced sage

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 150C. Tear the sourdough into small pieces, place on a baking tray and bake until dry (14-18 minutes). Cool briefly, then process to coarse crumbs in a food processor.
  • 02
  • Increase oven to 180C. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat and sauté onion, garlic and thyme until onion is softened (14-16 minutes). Add prunes and stir occasionally until softened slightly (5 minutes), then add breadcrumbs, liver and sage, season and stir occasionally until well combined and liver is just cooked (2-3 minutes).
  • 03
  • Place stuffing in a small (about 16cm x 20cm) baking tray lined with baking paper and bake (or refrigerate at this point if making ahead) until golden and crisp on top (35-45 minutes). Serve stuffing with roast goose.
