Friands are small almond cakes, which are also known as financiers in France. They are moist, chewy, rich and perfectly dense. You don't need a special oval Friand pan to bake these, a standard muffin tin would work just fine. This recipe makes about 10 standard muffins or 6 rectangles (10x6.5x4cm). Coffee friands are the perfect accompaniment to your mid-morning or afternoon break. The remaining friands can be kept in an airtight container for up to 3 days or frozen for a month.

  • 185 g Butter, chopped
  • 125 g Almond meal
  • 220 g Confectioners' sugar
  • 75 g White spelt flour
  • 1 tbsp Ground coffee powder
  • 6 Egg whites, lightly beaten until frothy
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Brush six 140ml capacity non-stick mini loaf pans (or 10 regular muffin cups) with melted butter to lightly grease.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium-low heat, then simmer for 5 minutes until golden brown (take care not to burn). Cool slightly.
  3. Combine the almond meal, confectioners' sugar, white spelt flour and coffee powder. Whisk the egg whites until frothy. Add to the dry ingredients, with the butter. Stir until just combined.
  4. Divide the batter among prepared pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  5. Set aside in the pans for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool. Serve dusted with a little extra sifted confectioners' sugar, if desired.

Marinated Labneh

Labneh (lob-nay), aka labne, lebna, or labaneh, is made from strained yoghurt and has a rich, creamy texture similar to whipped cream cheese and tangy like sour cream. The longer you let it strain, the thicker the labneh becomes. It's a common ingredient in Middle Eastern cuisine and can be used as the base of a dip and spread, a swap for sour cream, stir-in ingredient or use it in place of the cream cheese to bake a cheesecake.
You can buy labnen in Middle Eastern food markets or stores, but it's actually quite easy and less expensive to make at home with just a couple of ingredients and a few common kitchen tools.

  • 500 g Thick full-fat Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 10 g Parsley, chopped, to coat
  • 10 g Chives, chopped, to coat
  • 2 tbsp Sumac, to coat (or za'atar)
  • 2 tbsp Poppy seeds, to coat
  • 2 tbsp Black seeds, to coat
  • 2 tbsp Pink peppercorns, to coat
  • 2 tbsp Pistachios, chopped, to coat
  • 2 tbsp Hazelnuts, chopped, to coat
  • 2 Garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds, crushed
  • Salt and black pepper
  1. Line a large sieve with cheesecloth or a nut milk bag. Combine yoghurt and sea salt in the sieve, then set sieve over a deep bowl. Place in refrigerator and let drain for 2-3 days.
  2. Gently squeeze out any excess liquid and discard the whey in the bowl or use it to bake bread. Yoghurt will be very thick and resemble soft goat cheese.
  3. Dip your fingers in oil and roll the strained yoghurt into balls about the size of a cherry tomato. Coat in desired seasoning.
  4. Place them in a serving plate or a jar filled with some olive oil. Add in sliced garlic, crushed cumin, some pink peppercorns if desired. Season with a little bit salt and pepper.
  5. Cover and chill at least 2 hours or up to 2 months. Bring back to room temperature before serving as you don’t want them to be fridge-cold.

Tomato Salad with Kiwi and Crunchy Capers

Wednesday, April 07, 2021

The combination of tomatoes, kiwi and crisp fried capers might sound odd, but it worked like a charm. I use a mix of dark coloured heirloom tomato and regular grape and cherry tomatoes, but any quality tomatoes will work just as fine. Feel free to throw in some avocado for an extra boost of potassium. The salad is light, fresh and full of flavour. Serve it as an appetizer or as an accompaniment to meat.

  • 50 g Capers, rinsed and patted dry
  • 3 tbsp Avocado oil for frying
  • 300 g Dark coloured tomatoes, sliced (or heirloom tomato of your choice)
  • 100 g Grape tomatoes, halved
  • 100 g Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 Kiwi, ripe yet firm, peeled and sliced
  • 1 Fresh lime, zested and juiced
  • Celtic grey sea salt
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • 2 tbsp Tarragon, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Eextra virgin olive oil
  1. Drain the brined capers, rinse and pat dry with a paper towel. Heat avocado oil in a small saucepan or skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add in capers and fry, swirling the pan gently, until golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the capers to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Set aside to cool briefly before using.
  2. Place the sliced tomato, lime juice, sea salt and black pepper in a large bowl and gently toss to combine. Arrange tomatoes and kiwi on a large patter and divide into two plates.
  3. Sprinkle crispy capers over the salad. Top with chopped tarragon and drizzle with olive oil to serve.

Roasted Leg of Venison

Friday, April 02, 2021

Venison is the meat of a deer. The meat is dark, lean and generally tender with a dense texture. The younger the animal, the more tender the meat. Choose your cut according to what you want to do with it. My favourite cut for roasting is the leg of venison, which is marinated with a mixture of melted tallow (duck fat would work beautifully here too), herbs, allspice, juniper berries and Hawaiian black lava salt. This recipe will give you a medium meat – roaste it for longer if you'd prefer it to be well done.

  • 850 g-1kg Boneless leg of venison
  • 5 tbsp Tallow, melted (butter, duck fat or olive oil)
  • 1 tsp Dried thyme
  • 1 tsp Savory, chopped
  • 1 tsp Dried oregano
  • 1 tsp Juniper berries , crushed
  • 1 tsp Allspice, crushed
  • 1 tsp Hawaiian black lava salt
  • 1 Red onions, sliced
  • 500 ml Homemade beef stock
  • 100 ml Red wine (or beef stock)
  • Roasted carrots, to serve
  • Spelt pasta, to serve
  • Fresh herbs, to garnish
  1. Rinse and pat dry the leg of venison. Stir together the melted tallow, dried herbs and black lava salt. Coat the leg of venison thoroughly with the mariande. Leave it in the fridge overnight.
  2. Bring the venison to room temperature 1 hour before cooking. Preheat the oven to 160C/320F. Heat an oven and flameproof skillet over a medium-high heat until very hot. Add in venison and brown it on all sides. Add in sliced onions around the meat. Add in half of beef stock and roast in the oven for 40 minutes for medium, 60-70 minutes for well done.
  3. Remove from the oven, put onto a serving platter and keep warm by covering with a sheet of tin foil. Rest for a minimum of 10 minutes before carving, leaving the roasted onions in the skillet for the gravy.
  4. For the gravy, deglaze roasting skillet with the remaining stock and red wine if using, stirring in all the caramelized juices from the skillet. Use a stick blender to puree the mixture until smooth. Bring to a simmer and cook for 8-10 minutes to reduce the gravy slightly. If you prefer your gravy slightly thicker, whisk a teaspoon of cornstach mixed with 1-2 teaspoons of water to make a smooth paste and stir into the gravy.
  5. Strain the gravy if you wish, season to taste. Serve slices of venison with spelt pasta, maple syrup roasted carrots and the gravy.
