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.

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.

Rare roast beef with anchovies, garlic and rocket salsa verde


You'll need

¼ cup (firmly packed) each rosemary, thyme and oregano 8 anchovy fillets 5 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped 70 ml (¾ cup) olive oil 1 tbsp aged red wine vinegar 1 kg piece trimmed beef fillet   Rocket salsa verde 2 cups (firmly packed) rocket (about 2 bunches) 45 gm salted baby capers, rinsed, drained 1 golden shallot, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, finely chopped ½ cup (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsley 180 ml olive oil 1 tbsp aged red wine vinegar Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon

Method

  • 01
  • Process herbs, anchovy and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped. Add oil and vinegar, season to taste and process to a fine paste.
  • 02
  • Slash beef at intervals with a sharp knife, place in a non-reactive tray, pour over herb mixture and rub into beef. Cover and refrigerate to marinate (2-4 hours).
  • 03
  • For rocket salsa verde, blanch rocket until bright green and just wilted (10 seconds), drain, refresh, then drain again, squeezing out excess water. Coarsely chop and set aside. Process capers, shallot and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped. Add rocket and parsley, process until coarsely chopped. With motor running, add oil in a thin, steady stream, processing until finely chopped, then add vinegar, lemon rind and juice. Season to taste and refrigerate until required.
  • 04
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add beef and turn occasionally until browned on all sides (4-5 minutes). Transfer to an oven tray and roast until cooked to your liking (25-30 minutes for rare), then cover with foil and rest in a warm place (15 minutes). Thinly slice and serve warm or at room temperature with rocket salsa verde.
