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.

Method

  • 01
  • Process oregano, verjuice, rinds, juices and 60ml (¼ cup) vegetable oil in a food processor until a coarse paste. Place quail in a non-reactive container to fit snugly. Spread paste over quail, turn to coat, refrigerate and marinate (8 hours or overnight).
  • 02
  • For spelt salad, cook spelt in a saucepan of simmering salted water until tender (10-12 minutes). Drain and set aside to cool. Just before serving, add remaining ingredients, season to taste and toss to combine.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add quail skin-side down and cook, pressing lightly with a metal spatula to flatten, until golden (2-3 minutes). Turn and cook until golden (1-2 minutes). Transfer to a tray lined with baking paper, add grapes and roast until quail is cooked through (5-7 minutes). Set aside to rest (5 minutes) then cut quail in half.
  • 04
  • For caperberry and grape salad, combine ingredients in a bowl, season to taste.
  • 05
  • Divide spelt salad between plates, top with quail and roast grapes, then caperberry salad, scatter over red sorrel, season to taste, drizzle with a little extra-virgin olive oil and serve.

Note cracked spelt is available from select grocers and is also labeled farro spezzato. Fig vincotto is available from Italian grocers. If unavailable, substitute vincotto.
