Jamaican goat curry

"Goat is the world's most consumed meat and we hardly give it a look in Australia. I adore it in so many different preparations, from South-East Asian dishes through to Italian braises, but my favourite is Jamaican curry with its heady spices," says Evans. "I see spices as nature's medicine cabinet and use them in as much of my cooking as possible. If you can't get your hands on quality goat meat (farmers' markets are a good bet or online), then feel free to substitute lamb or another protein. But if you've never had goat before, I urge you to give it a whirl."

Crespelle with grapefruit and mascarpone


You'll need

250 gm plain flour 10 gm caster sugar 500 ml (2 cups) milk, plus extra to thin if necessary 3 eggs 50 gm unsalted butter, melted, plus extra for greasing pan 240 gm mascarpone For dusting: pure icing sugar   Caramelised ruby grapefruit 2 ruby grapefruit 400 gm caster sugar 50 ml brandy

Method

  • 01
  • Sift together dry ingredients and ¼ teaspoon salt into a bowl. Whisk milk, eggs and melted butter in a separate bowl to combine, add to dry mixture, whisking to combine. Pass through a sieve into a jug. Add a little extra milk, if necessary, to thin to pouring consistency and refrigerate to rest (2-3 hours).
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 160C. For caramelised ruby grapefruit, remove rind from grapefruit with a peeler, then remove and discard pith, finely slice rind and set aside. Slice grapefruit into rounds, place in a bowl with their juice, set aside. Bring sugar and 50ml water to boil in a small saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar, then brush down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush. Cook over medium heat until caramelised (15-20 minutes). Add rind, grapefruit and brandy (be careful, it will flame) and cook until rind is tender and caramel is of drizzling consistency (1 minute).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, heat a 25cm-diameter non-stick frying pan over medium heat, brush pan with butter and pour enough mix to thinly cover the bottom of the pan (about 60ml). Cook until brown (2-3 minutes), turn and cook until cooked through (1 minute). Transfer to a tray, set aside to cool and repeat with remaining mixture.
  • 04
  • Spread crêpes with mascarpone, then fold into quarters. Place on an oven tray lined with baking paper, sprinkle with icing sugar and warm in oven (2-3 minutes). Transfer to plates, spoon over grapefruit mixture and serve immediately.
Note“Many of us grew up eating crêpes Suzette in restaurants. Our version uses tart ruby grapefruit and mascarpone to cut through the syrupy caramel. Citrus fruit is in its prime in winter and ruby grapefruit are underrated gems, but blood oranges or mandarins work beautifully as well. With a glass of Sauternes, this dish warms the soul.”

This recipe is from the August 2009 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
