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.

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."

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Roast scotch fillet with black pepper dressing and potato and fennel salad


You'll need

60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 1.6 kg black Angus scotch fillet 400 gm baby cavolo nero   Crushed potato, fennel and horseradish salad 1 kg kipfler potatoes, scrubbed 1 baby fennel 2 tbsp julienne horseradish root (see note)   Black pepper dressing 1 tbsp whole black peppercorns 1 tbsp hot English mustard 2 tbsp red wine vinegar 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped 125 ml (½ cup) olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For black pepper dressing, place pepper in a mortar and, using a pestle, coarsely crush. Place mustard, vinegar and garlic in a bowl and whisk to combine, then gradually whisk in oil, stir through crushed pepper and season to taste with sea salt.
  • 02
  • For crushed potato, fennel and horseradish salad, place potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with water, season with sea salt, bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain, crush coarsely with a fork and set aside. Using a mandolin finely shave fennel and place into acidulated water. Using a vegetable peeler peel horseradish, then peel root lengthways into thin strips. Drain fennel and combine with horseradish and potatoes, season to taste and drizzle with a little black pepper dressing.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan, add scotch fillet and cook over high heat, turning frequently, for 3-5 minutes or until evenly browned. Place fillet into a roasting pan and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place roasting pan into oven and roast for 40 minutes for medium-rare or until cooked to your liking. Cover loosely with foil and rest for 10 minutes.
  • 04
  • Heat remaining oil in a frying pan, add cavolo nero and sauté for 3-5 minutes or until just wilted, season to taste. Slice beef into 1cm pieces. Spoon cavolo nero onto plates, top with crushed potato salad, 2 slices of beef, drizzle with remaining black pepper dressing and serve immediately.

Note Horseradish root is available from select greengrocers.
