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.

Black sesame and mango tart


"This is a simple tart celebrating the deliciously sweet yet slightly sour flavour of mango, a fruit I associate with Christmas and summer," says O Tama Carey. Begin this recipe a day ahead to set the tart.

You'll need

4 ripe but firm mangoes (preferably Bowen), peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped 375 ml evaporated milk 4 titanium-strength gelatine sheets, soaked for 5 minutes in cold water to soften   Black sesame pastry 30 gm (¼ cup) black sesame seeds 1¼ tsp fennel seeds 230 gm plain flour 40 gm caster sugar 150 gm chilled butter, diced 100 gm mascarpone 1 tsp cider vinegar

Method

  • 01
  • For black sesame pastry, dry-roast black sesame seeds and fennel seeds separately until toasted (2-3 minutes for sesame, 30 seconds to 1 minute for fennel). Pound fennel seeds with a mortar and pestle until finely ground, then combine with flour, sugar, 1 tsp sea salt flakes and sesame seeds in a food processor. Add butter and mascarpone and pulse until dough starts to come together. Add vinegar and 1 tbsp chilled water and pulse until just starting to come together. Turn pastry out onto the bench and gently bring it together with your hands. Form into a disc, wrap with plastic wrap and rest in the fridge for 2-3 hours.
  • 02
  • Roll pastry between 2 sheets of baking paper until 5mm thick. Place the rolled pastry back in the fridge to rest for another few moments to make it easier to work with. Remove the pastry again and peel off the top layer of baking paper. Flip it over and place in a lightly oiled 28cm x 3cm-deep fluted tart tin and gently press the pastry in, leaving it covered with the baking paper. Refrigerate again for at least another few hours before baking.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Remove pastry from the fridge and blind-bake until golden (20 minutes). Remove baking paper, drop oven to 160C and continue cooking until pastry is a darkish brown (20-25 minutes). Remove from oven and cool completely.
  • 04
  • Process mango in a blender until smooth. Weigh out 800gm of purée and place in a bowl.
  • 05
  • Heat evaporated milk and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan over medium heat until mixture reaches 60C (1-2 minutes). Remove from heat, squeeze excess water from gelatine and whisk into milk. Cool to room temperature, then add mango purée and whisk to combine. Pour into tart case and refrigerate until set (6 hours or overnight), then serve.
