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

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.

Chicken brodo with mushroom and mascarpone tortellini


You'll need

2 chicken carcasses 1 each onion, carrot and celery stalk, coarsely chopped 1 garlic head, halved horizontally 10 gm dried porcini mushrooms 6 thyme sprigs 8 small Swiss brown mushrooms, thinly sliced 1 bunch spinach, trimmed To serve: shaved parmesan   Mushroom and mascarpone tortellini 175 gm field mushrooms, coarsely chopped 4 golden shallots, coarsely chopped 2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped 2 tbsp olive oil 150 gm mascarpone 2 tbsp each finely chopped thyme and flat-leaf parsley Finely grated rind of 1 lemon 1 quantity egg-yolk pasta dough For brushing: eggwash

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Combine chicken carcasses, onion, carrot, celery and garlic in a large roasting pan and roast, turning occasionally, until browned (50 minutes-1 hour). Transfer to a stockpot, add porcini, thyme and 2 litres cold water, bring to the boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat to medium, simmer until well-flavoured (1½-2 hours). Strain into a saucepan, season to taste and keep warm.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for mushroom and mascarpone tortellini, process mushrooms, shallot and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add mushroom mixture, sauté until fragrant (4-5 minutes), transfer to a bowl and cool. Stir in mascarpone, herbs and lemon rind, season to taste and refrigerate until required. Cut pasta into thirty-two 8.5cm-diameter rounds, keep covered. Place a tablespoon of mushroom mixture in centre of each round, brush edges lightly with eggwash, fold in half, pressing edges firmly to seal. Brush corners with eggwash, bring together and press to seal. Cook, in batches, in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (2-3 minutes), remove with a slotted spoon, divide among hot bowls.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, add mushrooms to chicken broth, simmer until tender (1-2 minutes), add spinach, then ladle over tortellini. Serve hot, scattered with parmesan.
