Jamaican goat curry

"Goat is the world's most consumed meat and we hardly give it a look in Australia. I adore it in so many different preparations, from South-East Asian dishes through to Italian braises, but my favourite is Jamaican curry with its heady spices," says Evans. "I see spices as nature's medicine cabinet and use them in as much of my cooking as possible. If you can't get your hands on quality goat meat (farmers' markets are a good bet or online), then feel free to substitute lamb or another protein. But if you've never had goat before, I urge you to give it a whirl."

Grilled guanciale and mushroom bruschetta


You'll need

1 soft baguette, thickly sliced diagonally 120 gm thinly sliced guanciale (see note) 50 gm unsalted butter, coarsely chopped 250 gm large portobello mushrooms, cut into wedges   Garlic-chilli oil 125 ml (½ cup) extra-virgin olive oil 6 garlic cloves 2 red birdseye chillies 1 lemon, zested rind only

Method

  • 01
  • For garlic-chilli oil, blend ingredients and ½ tsp sea salt in a blender until well combined. Set aside.
  • 02
  • Preheat a grill on high heat. Brush baguette slices with garlic-chilli oil and grill until golden and toasted, turning once (3-4 minutes). Keep warm.
  • 03
  • Place guanciale on a baking paper-lined oven tray and grill until starting to crisp (2-3 minutes). Set aside.
  • 04
  • Heat a large frying pan over medium heat, add butter and cook until foaming (1-2 minutes), add mushroom and sauté until starting to colour (3-4 minutes). Season to taste.
  • 05
  • Arrange mushrooms on toasted baguette, crumble over guanciale, drizzle with extra garlic-chilli oil and serve immediately.
Note Guanciale is cured pig’s cheek or jowl and is available from select Italian delicatessens and butchers. If unavailable, substitute prosciutto.

“I’d love to surprise my wife by re-creating the bruschetta she enjoyed at Ash St Cellar when we celebrated our wedding anniversary there recently. Is there any chance you could publish the recipe?”
