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."

Spinach and feta tart


You'll need

500 gm baby spinach leaves 4 spring onions, thinly sliced 200 gm feta, coarsely chopped 1 lemon, rind finely grated ¼ tsp ground nutmeg 8 sheets filo pastry 100 gm butter, melted 1 tsp each white and black sesame seeds To serve: green salad

Method

  • 02
  • Brush a 20cm-square cake pan with butter. Place a sheet of filo on work surface, brush with butter, place another sheet of filo on top and brush with butter. Repeat with 2 more sheets. Trim pastry to 20cm wide and place in pan, allowing pastry to hang over the sides. Repeat with remaining filo pastry sheets, placing crossways across other prepared pastry sheets. Spoon spinach mixture into filo-lined pan, fold over pastry to enclose filling, brush with remaining butter and scatter with sesame seeds. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
