Anzac biscuit desserts

These four desserts have one thing in common – Anzac biscuits.

Persian red lentil soup with tahini, beetroot and fried mint

Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.

Six sexy panna cottas

We say si to these six takes on the Italian classic. From coffee and caramel to red wine and figs, panna cotta proves to be a versatile dessert to suit all palettes.

Eclair recipes

Here are four spins on the classic French eclair, from Flour & Stone's pillowy choux pastry with salted caramel to a colourful take with strawberry-flecked creme fraiche filling and sprinkled pistachios on top.

Chorizo and Manchego tortilla


Sausage. Eggs. Cheese. What a brilliant combo. A dollop of homemade, garlicky alioli and that's about as good as it gets.

You'll need

60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 2 chorizo, thinly sliced 450 gm chat potatoes, very thinly sliced ½ Spanish onion, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 6 eggs 1 lemon, finely grated rind only 50 gm Manchego, thinly shaved, plus extra to serve 1/3 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley   Alioli 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 2 egg yolks 200 ml extra-virgin olive oil 30 ml sherry vinegar, or to taste

Method

  • 01
  • For alioli, pound garlic and 2 tsp sea salt in a mortar and pestle until a fine paste forms, then add yolks and mix to combine. Add oil in a thin steady stream, mixing with pestle to emulsify, then add vinegar, season to taste and set aside. Makes 300ml.
  • 02
  • Heat half the olive oil in a 20cm-diameter (base measurement) non-stick frying pan or cast-iron pan over medium-high heat, add chorizo and sauté until crisp (2-3 minutes), transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon and set aside. Return pan to heat and add remaining olive oil. Add potato and sauté until tender (4-5 minutes), add onion and garlic and sauté until tender (2-3 minutes). Drain in a colander (reserve oil), add to chorizo.
  • 03
  • Whisk eggs and lemon rind lightly to combine in a bowl, season to taste and pour over potato mixture. Stir through Manchego and parsley and set aside.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, preheat a grill to high. Heat reserved oil in an ovenproof frying pan over medium heat, add egg mixture, shaking pan to level top and cook, shaking pan frequently, until half set (6-8 minutes), then grill until golden and set (4-5 minutes). Serve warm or at room temperature with alioli, scattered with extra Manchego.
