Anzac biscuit desserts

These four desserts have one thing in common – Anzac biscuits.

Persian red lentil soup with tahini, beetroot and fried mint

Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.

Six sexy panna cottas

We say si to these six takes on the Italian classic. From coffee and caramel to red wine and figs, panna cotta proves to be a versatile dessert to suit all palettes.

Eclair recipes

Here are four spins on the classic French eclair, from Flour & Stone's pillowy choux pastry with salted caramel to a colourful take with strawberry-flecked creme fraiche filling and sprinkled pistachios on top.

Evergreen


"With its fresh green and botanical flavours balanced by light floral honey, the approachability of the Evergreen will convert any non-tequila drinker," says Ashton. "Plan ahead for this drink - the effort will be well rewarded. My preference for soda water in Spritzes is to use water carbonated with a Sodastream - it allows you to control the carbonation, so you can add the most carbonated water to give the brightest Spritz." Start this recipe a day ahead to infuse the garden riesling.

You'll need

20 ml Don Julio Blanco Tequila 25 ml verjuice 45 ml soda water To garnish: cucumber thinly sliced on the diagonal and mint   Garden riesling 2 Lebanese cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthways, seeded and finely sliced on a mandolin 3 bunches round-leaf mint 1 tbsp lavender flowers 750 ml (3 cups) dry riesling   Honey water 1 small jar light floral honey, such as rainforest

Method

  • 01
  • For garden riesling, place ingredients in a large zip-lock bag, adding the wine last. Expel all air by submerging bag in a sink filled with water, sealing just before the bag submerges fully. Place flat in a container and stand at room temperature for 3 hours to infuse, then refrigerate to chill and for flavours to develop (24 hours). Strain through a fine strainer, then through muslin (discard solids) and transfer to a bottle. Makes 750ml. Garden riesling will keep refrigerated for a week.
  • 02
  • For honey water, submerge honey jar in hot water to warm and liquify, then pour into a heatproof container. Fill empty jar with hot water, seal and carefully shake to dissolve remaining honey, then stir into honey, transfer to a bottle, cool and reserve. Honey water keeps indefinitely.
  • 03
  • Pour 75ml garden riesling, tequila, verjuice and 15ml honey water into a glass filled with ice. Top with soda, stir gently, garnish with mint and cucumber, and serve.
