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."

Rhubarb and mascarpone French toast


You'll need

2 bunches of rhubarb, trimmed 110 gm (½ cup) raw caster sugar 3 cardamom pods, bruised 2 oranges 150 gm honey, plus extra to serve 350 gm mascarpone 1 vanilla bean, scraped seeds only 8 thick slices of sourdough bread 2 eggs, lightly beaten with ¼ cup milk 60 gm butter, coarsely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Cut two-thirds of the rhubarb into 2cm pieces, place in a colander, rinse under cold water and shake off excess. Combine in a heavy-based saucepan with sugar and cardamom. Add three pieces of orange rind removed with a peeler and juice of 1½ oranges. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves, then simmer until rhubarb is tender and mixture is jammy (about 15 minutes). Remove from heat, discard cardamom and peel, and cool.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200C. Cut remaining rhubarb into 5cm pieces and place in a single layer on an oven tray. Drizzle with 50gm honey and squeeze over juice of remaining half orange. Roast until just tender and glazed (about 15 minutes), keep warm.
  • 03
  • Combine mascarpone, vanilla seeds and remaining honey in a bowl. Mix until smooth.
  • 04
  • Pour egg mixture into a shallow tray and set aside. Spread one side of each bread slice thickly with mascarpone mixture, then with rhubarb jam. Place slices bread-side down into egg mixture and stand until bread absorbs a little of the mixture (about 1 minute). Heat half the butter in a large frying pan over medium until butter foams. Add half the prepared bread, bread-side down, and cook until golden (about 2 minutes). Transfer to a baking paper-lined oven tray. Repeat with remaining bread, then bake until warmed through (about 5 minutes). Serve immediately with roast rhubarb drizzled with extra honey.
