Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

Garlic recipes

This pungent yet essential little bulb sets the foundation for countless dishes across the globe. Slowly roast it alongside spatchcock or whole snapper, or grind it down to thick paste for a rich alioli. When it comes to garlic, the possibilities truly are endless.

Pot-roasted guinea fowl with chestnut stuffing


You'll need

2 (about 800gm each) guinea fowl 60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 300 gm chestnut mushrooms 120 ml Marsala   Chestnut stuffing 130 gm day-old ciabatta, crust removed 60 ml (¼ cup) milk 2 tbsp olive oil 1 Spanish onion, thinly sliced 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 60 gm flat pancetta, cut into ½ cm pieces 1 tbsp rosemary leaves 100 gm chicken livers, trimmed and coarsely chopped 150 ml Marsala 125 gm cooked chestnuts, coarsely chopped (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • For chestnut stuffing, coarsely tear ciabatta into pieces, place in a bowl, pour over milk and stand. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan, add onion, garlic and pancetta and sauté over low-medium heat for 5 minutes or until onion is soft. Add mixture to bread. Add 1 tbsp olive oil to pan, increase heat to medium-high, add rosemary leaves and cook until aromatic, then add chicken liver and sauté until golden brown, deglaze pan with Marsala and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add chicken livers and chestnuts to the stuffing, season to taste and mix to combine. Cool to room temperature.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Rinse cavities of guinea fowl and pat dry with absorbent paper, season with sea salt and spoon stuffing evenly into cavities of guinea fowl. Heat olive oil in a heavy based flame-proof casserole, add guinea fowl and cook over high heat, turning occasionally until golden brown. Remove guinea fowl and set aside. Add mushrooms and sauté for 2 minutes or until just wilted, add Marsala and bring to a simmer. Return guinea fowl to pan, cover with a lid, place in the oven and roast for 40 minutes or until just cooked.
  • 03
  • Remove guinea fowl from casserole pan and keep warm. Heat liquid over medium-high heat and cook until reduced by half and slightly thickened, season to taste and serve guinea fowl drizzled with sauce and mushrooms.

Note Cooked vacuum-packed chestnuts are available from The Essential Ingredient and G J Foods.
