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.

Roast cauliflower and farro salad with agrodolce dressing


You'll need

190 gm farro perlato (see note) 1 large cauliflower (1.8kg), broken into florets 80 ml (1/3 cup) extra-virgin olive oil 2 tbsp pine nuts ½ cup firmly packed mint, coarsely torn   Agrodolce dressing 130 ml aged red wine vinegar 50 gm caster sugar 2 tbsp currants 1 small Spanish onion, halved and thinly sliced

Method

  • 01
  • Cook farro in plenty of boiling water until tender (30-40 minutes). Drain well, then transfer to a bowl.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200C. Scatter cauliflower on an oven tray and drizzle with half the oil, season to taste, then roast, turning occasionally, until golden (20-30 minutes), then add to farro. Scatter pine nuts over a separate oven tray and roast, stirring occasionally, until toasted (4-8 minutes). Set aside.
  • 03
  • For agrodolce dressing, bring vinegar and sugar to the boil in a small saucepan over high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add currants and onion, then pour into cauliflower mixture, stir to combine and set aside to cool.
  • 04
  • To serve, scatter pine nuts over, drizzle with remaining oil, then scatter with mint.
Note Farro perlato is available from select delicatessens and Italian grocers. If it’s unavailable, substitute cracked wheat.

This recipe is from the March 2013 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

Agrodolce, Italy’s sweet and sour dressing, goes very well with cauliflower and a nutty grain such as farro. The dressing can be made a few days ahead to allow the flavours to meld even more. This salad would be beautiful with grilled oily-fleshed fish, such as sardines or mackerel.
