Lebanese-style snapper

"This dish is Lebanese-peasant done fancy with all the peasant-style flavours you'll find in Lebanese cooking, but with a beautiful piece of fish added," says Bacash. "The trick to not overcooking fish is to be aware that it cooks from the outside inwards and the centre should only cook until it's warm, not hot. If it gets hot in the middle, it will become overcooked from the residual heat. It takes a little practise getting to know this - be conscious of the inside of the fish and not the outside. Until you get it right, you can always get a little paring knife and peek inside the flesh when you think it's ready; it won't damage it too much."

12-hour barbecue beef brisket

"Texas is world-renowned for barbecuing a mean brisket, the flat and fatty slab of meat, cut from the cow's lower chest," says Stone. "Cooking a simply seasoned brisket low and slow on a smoker (or kettle barbecue when barbecuing at home), gradually rendering the gummy white fat while simultaneously infusing smoky flavour into the meat, is a labour of love. Although time-consuming, briskets are not difficult to cook. And while you'll note that this one takes a whopping 12 hours to cook, don't be alarmed if your brisket needs another hour or so - this timing is an approximation, and greatly depends on the size of your brisket and heat of your barbecue." The brisket can also be cooked in an oven (see note).

Salade Lyonnaise


You'll need

4 eggs (see note) 80 ml (1/3 cup) olive oil 300 gm piece of bacon, cut into lardons 1 clove of garlic, bruised 2 tbsp white wine vinegar 2 cups loosely packed frisèe 1 cup loosely packed chervil sprigs 1 witlof, leaves separated ¼ cup thinly sliced chives   Croûtons To taste: clarified butter 12 1cm-thick slices of baguette

Method

  • 01
  • For croûtons, heat clarified butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat and cook bread in batches for 1-2 minutes each side or until golden, then drain on absorbent paper and, when cool enough to handle, break into rough pieces and place in large bowl.
  • 02
  • Poach eggs in a saucepan of simmering salted water for 3-4 minutes for soft (or until cooked to your liking), drain and keep warm.
  • 03
  • Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan over medium high heat, add bacon and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes or until bacon is crisp, then, using a slotted spoon, remove bacon and add to croûtons, discarding garlic.
  • 04
  • Add remaining oil and vinegar to the pan, mix to combine and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground white pepper, then remove from heat.
  • 05
  • Add frisèe, chervil, witlof and 2 tbsp chives to croûtons and bacon, drizzle with a little warm vinaigrette and toss to combine. Divide among plates, top each with a poached egg, scatter with remaining chives and drizzle with remaining dressing. Serve immediately.

Note For poaching, eggs should be as fresh as possible. Fresh eggs will lie on their sides, not float, when placed in a bowl of cold water.
