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

Method

  • 01
  • Place mung beans in a metal colander and steam over a saucepan of boiling water until tender (10-15 minutes), drain, then process with chicken stock in a food processor until finely ground. Transfer to a bowl, add kimchi, spring onion, coriander, gochujang, soy sauce, garlic and sesame oil and season to taste with sesame salt and freshly ground pepper. Stir half the crab into mixture and set aside.
  • 02
  • For anchovy salad, heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat, add anchovies and fry until starting to crisp (2-4 minutes). Add soy sauce and gochujang and cook to combine (10-20 seconds), add syrup and sugar and cook until glazed (10-20 seconds), set aside.
  • 03
  • For seaweed salad, combine ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

  • Heat half the oil to 5mm deep in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Halve mung bean mixture and form each half into a large patty. Fry one patty, turning once, until golden and crisp (1-2 minutes each side), then repeat with remaining oil and patty. Serve warm, topped with remaining crab and micro shiso, with seasoning sauce, anchovy salad and seaweed salad.
