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."

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.

Pig fish pie


You'll need

500 gm skinless firm-fleshed white fish, cut into 4cm cubes 60 gm sea salt 500 gm piece pork neck, halved widthways 750 ml (3 cups) milk 1 onion, coarsely chopped 1 celery stalk, coarsely chopped 1 fresh bay leaf 5 whole black peppercorns 60 gm butter, coarsely chopped 60 gm plain flour   Potato purée 1 kg mashing potatoes, such as sebago, scrubbed, plus 2 extra for slicing 250 ml (1 cup) pouring cream 100 gm butter, coarsely chopped, plus 10gm extra, melted, for brushing

Method

  • 01
  • Combine fish and salt in a non-reactive container, toss to coat well, then refrigerate to cure (2 hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180C. Place pork in a roasting pan large enough to hold it snugly, add milk, onion, celery, bay leaf and peppercorns, cover with foil and braise until tender (45 minutes-1 hour). Remove pork, then strain liquid (discard solids) and reserve. Cut pork into 2cm cubes and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Roast potatoes in a roasting pan until tender (1¼-1½ hours).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, rinse fish well, combine in a saucepan with pork braising liquid, bring to the simmer over low-medium heat and simmer until just cooked through (3-4 minutes; top up with a little extra milk if necessary). Strain (reserve liquid) and add fish to pork neck.
  • 05
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add flour and stir continuously until sandy-coloured (1-2 minutes). Gradually add 600ml poaching liquid, whisking continuously until smooth and thick (1-2 minutes). Remove from heat, stir in pork and fish, season to taste with freshly ground black pepper and pour into a 2-litre ovenproof dish, filling to about 3cm below rim. Set aside.
  • 06
  • Increase oven to 220C. Peel roast potatoes (discard skins), coarsely chop, place in a saucepan and coarsely mash. Bring cream to the simmer in a separate saucepan over medium-high heat. Gradually add to potato, mashing until smooth, then add butter and beat over medium heat until smooth (2-3 minutes). Season to taste, spoon over fish mixture and smooth top to sit flush with edges of dish. Peel remaining potatoes, thinly slice on a mandolin, arrange over potato purée to form a scalloped effect and season to taste.
  • 07
  • Bake pie until bubbling around edges (20-25 minutes) and serve hot.
This recipe is from the June 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“Pig makes everything better, much like butter, so the fish pie we make from time to time at Sweet Envy is loaded with braised pork neck,” says Wise.
