Nut Crusted Cheese Log

Let the cheeses soften on your bench while you dice nuts and herbs. Whip the cheeses with liquor to combine until smooth.

Mix chilli with herbs and nuts, then sprinkle onto a 30cm piece of plastic wrap, leaving a 2cm border.

Spoon cheese along one end of herbs. Lift wrap and roll cheese away from you into a log, pressing gently to coat well in herbs, shape the mixture into a log, then wrap and refrigerate for about an hour, until the mixture is firm. (NOTE: Can be made up to 2 days ahead of time)

Serve with your favourite crackers.

Pavlova Trifle with soaked Sunmuscat Sultanas

To make the custard: soak Sunbeam Sunmuscats in the rum for 1-2 hours. Place milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and ginger into a saucepan over low-medium heat. Bring to a gentle simmer but below boiling for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly, removing the cinnamon and ginger pieces.   

 In a large bowl whisk together egg yolks and corn starch. Then, while whisking slowly mix in a ladle of the warm milk to temper the eggs. Continue doing this until you’ve mixed all the warm milk in. Clean out the saucepan and add the custard mixture back in. Het over low heat for 20 minutes, whisking constantly, until the custard coats the back of the spoon. Remove from heat and stir through the rum-soaked Sunmuscats. 

 Pour into a heat safe bowl and let cool on the counter. Then, refrigerate until cold. 

 To make the Candied Pistachios: Add the sugar and honey to a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Add pistachios, salt and sumac. Stir to combine. Turn the heat up to medium-high and cook for 2 minutes, or until the syrup coast the pistachios and is very thick. Place pistachios onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and allow to cool and set. Let cool completely before using.  

 To assemble Trifle, in a large glass serving dish, layer chunks of pavlova, Spiced Rum Custard, Honey Candied Pistachios, strawberries and raspberries.

Serve immediately.
