Feta and greens gozleme

A lot of rolling and folding go into making this Turkish flatbread, but when you bite into them all the hard work will be forgotten. The traditional filling is silverbeet, but we've added kale and fresh herbs for fragrance and flavour. A good sprinkle of salt at the end and a squeeze of lemon are non-negotiable. Start this recipe a day ahead to rest the dough.

Mayflower Restaurant and Bar, Adelaide

Our restaurant critics' picks of the latest and best eats around the country right now: Mayflower Restaurant and Bar, Adelaide.

In the basement restaurant of Adelaide's Mayfair Hotel - a new boutique hotel fashioned from a 1930s Romanesque-inspired office tower - executive chef Bethany Finn embraces classic-era hotel dining room opulence with a fun modern twist. Finn pays due respect to lobster bisque en croûte, steak tartare, Caesar salad and a (Spencer Gulf) prawn cocktail without being fusty, each dish notable for declaring the freshness of superb local produce. At lunch, a carvery trolley offers roast of the day at your table, but the standout menu favourites are plump puff pastry pies. A tall mushroom pie has Swiss-brown caps sandwiched with mushroom pâté, and tangy Taleggio sauce to pour over the top. The dessert trolley is an irresistible temptation, laden with the likes of pineapple savarin, Opéra cake and choux pastry swans.

Mayflower Restaurant & Bar at the Mayfair Hotel, 45 King William St, Adelaide, SA, (08) 8210 8888.
