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

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.

Okonomiyaki with sticky soy pork belly

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.

Glazed ham with radishes and beans


You'll need

2 kg smoked ham hocks or Kassler 2 tbsp hot English mustard 2 tsp ground cloves 250 gm brown sugar 125 ml (½ cup) dry Sherry 2 tbsp olive oil 24 radishes, trimmed and halved Juice of ½ lemon, or to taste 500 gm baby green beans, trimmed To serve: extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 150C. Rub ham hocks with mustard, dust with cloves, place in a baking dish and roast until a crust forms (40 minutes).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, stir brown sugar and Sherry in a saucepan over low heat and simmer gently until syrupy (5-6 minutes).
  • 03
  • Increase oven to 180C. Brush a little Sherry glaze over ham and continue cooking, basting every 15 minutes, until ham is well glazed and aromatic and glaze caramelises around edges of baking dish (40-45 minutes). Thickly slice ham and arrange on a platter.
  • 04
  • Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add radish and stir occasionally until lightly coloured (1-2 minutes). Season to taste and add a squeeze of lemon juice for flavour and to allow the redness of the radishes to bleed.
  • 05
  • Blanch baby green beans (2-3 minutes), add to pan with radishes and enough extra-virgin olive oil to just coat vegetables, toss to combine and serve hot or warm with thickly sliced ham.

"Ah, the glory of pickled pork: smoked, savoury, salty and sweet," says Hugh Wennerbom. "Smoked ham hocks are ideal for this recipe because they are so unctuous, but they can be tricky to source. Kassler or leg ham pieces are good alternatives."
