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.

Chilli fried rice with Chinese roast duck and lychees


There's no need to limit yourself to roast duck here; this dish works just as well with chicken, prawns or pork.

50 ml grapeseed oil 1 tsp sesame oil 3 red or golden shallots, thinly sliced 2 tbsp finely grated ginger 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 400 gm (2 cups) cooked cold jasmine rice 1 Chinese roast duck, meat stripped from the bone and coarsely chopped 2 tbsp soy sauce, or to taste 2 tbsp Chinese roasted chilli paste, or to taste, plus extra to serve (see note) 1 tbsp Chinkiang vinegar 12 lychees, pitted and coarsely torn 2/3 cup each (loosely packed) coriander and mint 3 spring onions, thinly sliced

Method

  • 01
