Delicious winter salad

This is really nice served with a simple pasta, with leftover cold meats, in a sandwich or with a simple jacket potato and knob of butter. Any leftovers can be kept in the fridge then served as a really posh coleslaw.

Super scotch woodcock

This recipe may seem unusual, but after a big night it makes complete sense. The ‘manchovy relish’ recipe makes one small pot, but you’ll only use a little here, so keep the rest in the fridge to use later.

Avocado & slow-roasted tomatoes on toast

This is the kind of breakfast that you find in cafés across Australia. You can’t beat the creamy nuttiness of avocado combined with tangy cheese and sweet tomato. Since avocado is the star of the show, accept nothing less than softly yielding, ripe perfection.
