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.

Where would Spanish cuisine be without the chorizo? This versatile smallgood lends its big flavours to South American stews, soups, and salads, not to mention the ultimate hot dog. Let the sizzling begin.

Pea and ham soup

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. 

Panzerotti


You'll need

525 gm "00" flour ½ tsp dried yeast 185 ml (¾ cup) milk 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 30 ml dry white wine For shallow-frying: vegetable oil   Tomato and onion stuffing 2 tbsp olive oil 1 onion, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 800 gm canned whole tomatoes, drained, coarsely chopped 100 gm pitted black olives, finely chopped 2 tbsp salted capers, rinsed, drained 2 tbsp finely grated parmesan 2 tbsp coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley 2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon

Method

  • 01
  • Combine flour, yeast and 1 tsp salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook. Warm milk, oil and wine in a small saucepan over medium heat until lukewarm, add to flour mixture and knead until smooth and elastic (4-5 minutes). Transfer to an oiled bowl, turn to coat, cover and stand until doubled in size (1 hour).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for tomato and onion stuffing, heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add onion and garlic and stir occasionally until tender (5-6 minutes). Add tomato, stir occasionally until thick (8-10 minutes). Remove from heat, add olives, capers, parmesan, parsley, anchovy and lemon rind, season to taste and cool to room temperature.
  • 03
  • Knock down dough, pinch off walnut-sized pieces, roll into balls, place on a floured tray leaving space in between, cover with a damp tea towel and stand until doubled in size (1 hour).
  • 04
  • Roll out each piece of dough to a 3mm-thick round, place a tablespoon of tomato mixture in centre of each, brush edges with water, fold over to form a semi-circle and seal edges with a fork.
  • 05
  • Heat 5cm oil in a large deep-sided frying pan to 170C. Carefully slide panzerotti into oil in batches (be careful as hot oil will spit) and cook, turning once, until golden and cooked through (4-5 minutes). Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot.
This recipe is from the April 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

Puglia, the heel of Italy's boot, is a hot coastal region. These deep-fried beauties, however, are served traditionally on the feast of St Anthony Abbot in winter, and come with a variety of highly flavoured stuffings, including spiced pork and the anchovy-flecked tomato and onion mixture you see here.
