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."

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

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.

Sichuan steak tartare


You'll need

400 gm piece of beef tenderloin 40 gm (1/3 cup) Lao Gan Ma chilli oil with peanuts (see note) 4 spring onions, finely sliced 15 gm (1/3 cup) fried garlic (see note) To serve: baby coriander, prawn crackers (about 24) and sliced telegraph cucumber   Dressing 75 ml light soy sauce 25 ml Chinese black vinegar 25 ml mirin 2½ tsp rice wine vinegar 2½ tsp sugar syrup (see note) 5 gm piece of ginger, finely grated ¼ garlic clove, finely grated

Method

  • 01
  • For dressing, whisk ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  • 02
  • Remove all visible sinew from beef, then with a sharp knife, cut into very small dice (about 4mm) and refrigerate until required and combine in a bowl with chilli paste, spring onion and dressing. Mix with hands until ingredients are well incorporated.
  • 03
  • Divide mixture among 6 plates. Scatter with fried garlic and top with baby coriander. Serve immediately with prawn crackers and cucumber slices.
Note Lao Gan Ma is a brand of several different chilli oils and pastes; check ingredients and use the chilli oil containing peanuts. For fried garlic, thinly slice 8 garlic cloves on a mandolin, then deep-fry in oil at 140C until golden (1-2 minutes). For sugar syrup, combine 1 tbsp caster sugar and 1 tbsp water in a small saucepan over medium heat, stir to dissolve sugar, then set aside to cool. Makes 30ml.
