SMOKY EGGPLANT WITH WALNUTS & CHEESY YOGHURT

Yoghurt dips are an important part of Persian meals. One of my favourites is an eggplant dip with walnuts, topped with yoghurt or kashk – fermented, dried milk whey. Kashk, which can be found in Middle Eastern grocery stores, has a pungent, sour cheesy taste when rehydrated; it is unique but you can make an approximation by combining sour cream, crème fraîche or yoghurt with strong cheese such as parmesan or a blue. If you don’t fancy that, just use plain yoghurt.

BARBECUED BANANAS WITH CHOCOLATE SAUCE & COCONUT YOGHURT

Finally, you can burn your desserts without judgment! The recipes that follow are based on classic techniques that involve fire, smoke or high heat. The nectarine dish is smoky, fruity, with just a hint of sweetness, while the barbecued bananas are super-easy and tasty, as well as being vegan and dairy-free.


The sesame brûlée is inspired by sesame ice cream, which I’m a big fan of, and the baked Alaska slice is a simplified version of the retro favourite. Finally, no fiery dessert feature would be complete without a bit of flambé, which is where the buckwheat crêpes Suzette come in. Enjoy!
