Roast pork with Nelly Robinson

Nelly Robinson of Sydney's Nel restaurant talks us through his favourite roasting joints, tips for crisp roast potatoes and why, when it comes to pork, slow and steady always wins the race.

Lemon tart

It's really important to seal the pastry well to prevent any seepage during cooking, and to trim the pastry soon after cooking. Let the tart cool in the tin before removing it, or it will crack.

Bali's new wave of restaurants, hotels and bars

Pear, thyme and hazelnut tart

Thyme adds an intriguing savoury note to this burnt-butter tart, and poaching the pears in wine adds a further savoury element. Start this tart a day ahead to rest the pastry, and serve it with a dollop or two of creme fraiche.

Cinnamon-rhubarb blintz


You'll need

40 gm chilled butter, coarsely chopped 210 gm plain flour 200 gm caster sugar 1½ tsp ground cinnamon 4 eggs 250 ml (1 cup) milk 160 ml grapeseed oil, plus extra for brushing For dusting: icing sugar   Roast rhubarb 450 gm rhubarb (about 1 bunch, trimmed), cut into 8cm lengths 110 gm (½ cup) raw caster sugar Juice of 1 orange and ½ lemon 2 cinnamon quills   Sweet cheese filling 350 gm firm ricotta 250 gm softened cream cheese 80 gm pure icing sugar, sieved 1 egg yolk Scraped seeds of 1 vanilla bean 50 gm candied orange, diced

Method

  • 01
  • For roast rhubarb, preheat oven to 200C. Rinse rhubarb in a colander under running water, shake off excess water then place in a bowl with remaining ingredients and toss to combine. Spread rhubarb mixture in a roasting pan large enough to hold rhubarb in a single layer and roast on top shelf of oven until rhubarb is just tender (15-20 minutes). Keep warm.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, place butter, 60gm flour, 50gm sugar, half the cinnamon and a pinch of sea salt in a small bowl and rub butter into dry ingredients with your fingertips until coarse crumbs form, then spread on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake on lower shelf of oven, stirring occasionally, until browned (10-12 minutes). Cool, coarsely crumble and store in an airtight container until required.
  • 03
  • For sweet cheese filling, blend ingredients except candied orange in a food processor until smooth and combined, stir in candied orange and refrigerate until required.
  • 04
  • Blend remaining flour, sugar and cinnamon in a food processor to combine. Add egg and milk and process until smooth. Heat a 20cm-diameter crêpe pan over medium-high heat until a drop of water sizzles when added (if the water jumps, it’s too hot). Lightly brush with oil, add 80ml blintz batter, swirl pan to coat evenly and cook until edges are browned (1-2 minutes). Transfer to a piece of baking paper and repeat with remaining batter, separating each blintz with baking paper.
  • 05
  • Place blintz cooked-side up on a work surface. Spoon 1½-2 tbsp sweet cheese filling across the bottom third of each, about 3cm from lower edge. Fold up base, fold in sides and roll to enclose. Set aside on a tray.
  • 06
  • Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat, add half the blintz seam-side down and cook, turning occasionally, until golden all over (3-4 minutes). Transfer to a tray, wipe out pan with absorbent paper and repeat with remaining oil and blintz. Serve hot topped with roast rhubarb and sprinkled with cinnamon crumble and icing sugar.
This recipe is from the April 2013 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

The roast rhubarb served alongside these sweet cheese-filled blintz, a classic of Jewish cuisine, adds a lovely tart edge – you can roast the rhubarb a day ahead if you like and just reheat in the oven close to serving time. The cinnamon crumb is a little extra work, but the pay-off comes with the texture it adds to the dish. Alternatively, you could scatter with roasted chopped nuts.
