Gourmet Traveller Signature Collection tableware by Robert Gordon

We’ve teamed up with pottery house Robert Gordon to create a range of tableware – introducing the Gourmet Traveller Signature Collection.

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."

Roast double lamb cutlets with pumpkin puree and rosemary butter


You'll need

4 4-bone racks of lamb For frying: extra-virgin olive oil   Pumpkin purée 300 gm peeled pumpkin, cut into 4cm cubes 3 tbsp unsalted butter 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf (Italian) parsley 1 tbsp finely chopped rosemary 125 gm (½ cup) unsalted butter, softened 1 squeeze of lemon juice

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat the oven to 180C. To make the pumpkin purée, steam the pumpkin for 20-30 minutes until very tender. Purée with the butter and oil until very smooth and light. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • 02
  • For the rosemary butter, place the garlic, parsley, rosemary and salt in a mortar and bash with a pestle to form a rough paste. Add the butter and lemon juice and combine. Set aside.
  • 03
  • Season the lamb racks with sea salt and seal in a hot pan. Place in the oven and roast for 18 minutes, then remove from the oven and allow to rest in a warm place for at least 10 minutes.
  • 04
  • Cut the lamb racks in half to give you eight double cutlets. Place two double cutlets on each large plate, dollop a little rosemary butter on top and serve with pumpkin purée. Give a good grind of pepper, and serve.

"You can leave the racks whole, or cut them into four cutlets if you like. Another thing you could do is remove the lamb from the bone and slice; it will look lovely. Remember that meat cooked on the bone is juicier and more flavourful, so it is worth using the racks rather than the fillets." - Neil Perry
