Grilled apricot salad with jamon and Manchego

Here we've scorched apricots on the grill and served them with torn jamon, shaved Manchego and peppery rocket leaves. Think of it as a twist on the good old melon-prosciutto routine. The mixture would also be great served on charred sourdough.

Farro can be used in almost any dish, from a robust salad to accompany hearty beer-glazed beef short ribs to a new take on risotto with mushrooms, leek and parmesan. Here are 14 ways with this versatile grain.

Aløft

There's nothing new about Nordic interiors - blond timbers, concrete surfaces, warm, mid-century charm without the twee - and thank heavens for that. It's a style that augments the beauty of everything around it, in this case, gorgeous Hobart harbour, which makes up one whole wall. What is new here, however, is the food - by veterans of Garagistes, which once dazzled diners down the road, Vue de Monde in Melbourne and Gordon Ramsay worldwide. There's a strong Asian bent, but with Tasmanian ingredients. In fact, the kitchen's love of the local verges on obsessive - coconut milk in an aromatic fish curry is replaced with Tasmanian-grown fig leaf simmered in cream to mimic the flavour. Other standouts include a gutsy red-braised lamb with gai lan and chewy cassia spaetzle, pigs' ears zingy with Sichuan pepper and a fresh, springy berry dessert. While the food is sourced locally, the generous wine list spans the planet.

Pea and ham soup

Balsamic pork ribs with barbecue sauce


You'll need

2 racks pork baby back ribs, divided in half For drizzling: canola oil or grapeseed oil 1 tbsp sea salt flakes 4 each flat-leaf parsley and thyme sprigs 4 garlic cloves   Barbecue sauce 260 ml balsamic vinegar 240 ml tomato sauce 190 ml beer 85 gm (¼ cup) honey 55 gm (¼ cup, firmly packed) brown sugar 40 gm seeded mustard ½ Spanish onion, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 2 tsp molasses 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce 1 tsp Tabasco

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Place four 60cm lengths of foil shiny-side up on a work surface. Place a rib rack on each, drizzle with a little oil and rub into the ribs. Scatter each with 1 tsp salt and one-quarter of the herbs and garlic, wrap tightly to enclose, place on an oven tray and roast for 30 minutes. Reduce oven to 120C and roast until meat is fork-tender (1-1½ hours). Open foil and stand for 15 minutes.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for barbecue sauce, combine ingredients and 250ml water in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, then bring to the simmer. Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally until thick and well-flavoured (1½-2 hours).
  • 03
  • To serve, brush ribs with barbecue sauce, thickly slice and serve warm with remaining sauce. Barbecue sauce will keep refrigerated for a month.
