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.

Daniel Whelan’s roast snapper


"I had the pleasure of cooking with Daniel Whelan over summer, who taught me a few things," says Hafner. "Here is his roast snapper with a non-traditional salsa rossa, which he picked up while working in London."

You'll need

1 onion, sliced 3 garlic cloves, bruised 1 lemon, sliced 1 cup (loosely packed) wild fennel fronds (or regular) 3 thyme sprigs For drizzling: extra-virgin olive oil 50 gm softened butter 1½ tbsp each finely chopped parsley, tarragon and basil 1 snapper (2.5kg), cleaned   Salsa rossa 3 red capsicum 1 kg ripe tomatoes, cut into thin wedges 1 Spanish onion, thinly sliced on a mandolin 1 garlic clove, minced ½ cup coarsely torn basil leaves 60 gm caster sugar 70 ml cabernet sauvignon vinegar To taste: extra-virgin olive oil   Tapenade 250 gm kalamata olives, pitted 40 gm small salted capers, rinsed ¼ cup (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley 6-8 anchovy fillets 60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil   Zucchini salad 2 small zucchini, shaved on a mandolin 2 fennel, shaved on a mandolin 1 tbsp lemon juice 60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For salsa rossa, preheat oven to 220C. Roast capsicum on a tray until blistered (20-25 minutes). Set aside. When cool, peel, core and dice. Combine tomato, onion, garlic and basil in a roasting pan and set aside. Heat a frying pan over medium heat, sprinkle in sugar and cook until dark caramel (5-7 minutes), then add vinegar (be careful, hot caramel will spit). Add capsicum and cook until caramel dissolves (1-2 minutes). Pour evenly over tomato mixture, drizzle with oil and stand for 30 minutes for flavours to develop. Season to taste.
  • 02
  • For tapenade, process ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Set aside.
  • 03
  • Reduce oven to 190C. Scatter onion garlic, lemon, fennel fronds and thyme over an oven tray, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and season. Combine butter, parsley, tarragon and basil in a bowl, season, then rub all over fish. Pull out the sides of the fish so it stands upright on the bed of aromatics and roast until fish is just cooked and meat easily pulls away from frame (35-45 minutes). Season and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil just before serving.
  • 04
  • For zucchini salad, combine ingredients, season, then serve with fish, salsa rossa and tapenade.
