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

Ratatouille


You'll need

5 red capsicum 70 ml olive oil 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 1 onion, finely chopped 1 litre (4 cups) passata 800 gm eggplant (about 2), cut widthways into 5mm-thick slices 400 gm green zucchini, cut widthways into 5mm-thick slices 8 anchovy fillets, thinly sliced 6 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced horizontally 140 gm (2 cups) fresh coarse breadcrumbs 100 gm finely grated Gruyère 2 tsp thyme leaves To serve: green salad

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Place capsicum in a roasting pan, drizzle with 2 tsp olive oil and roast until skin is blistered (10-15 minutes). Transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and cool. When cool, peel and remove seeds (discarding peel and seeds), thinly slice lengthways and set aside.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and onion and sauté until soft (5-7 minutes). Add passata, season to taste and simmer, stirring occasionally to combine (4-5 minutes), then pour evenly into the base of a 3 litre-capacity deep baking dish.
  • 03
  • Layer eggplant, overlapping slightly, over prepared base. Season to taste and repeat with zucchini and roast capsicum. Scatter anchovies over and finish with a layer of Roma tomatoes.
  • 04
  • Combine breadcrumbs, Gruyère and thyme in a bowl. Season to taste, then scatter over vegetables and drizzle with remaining olive oil. Bake until crust is golden and vegetables are tender (55 minutes-1 hour). Serve with a green salad.
