2: DAMPER! Ingredients (serves 4) 450g (3 cups) self-raising flour Pinch of salt 80g butter, chilled, cubed 185ml (3/4 cup) water Method Preheat oven to 200C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the water to the flour mixture and use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until the mixture just comes together, adding 1-2 tbs extra water if the mixture is a little dry. Use your hands to bring the mixture together. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Shape into an 18cm disc and place on tray. Use a sharp knife that has been dipped in flour to mark 8 wedges on top. Dust the damper with a little extra flour and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the damper is cooked through and sounds hollow when tapped on the base. Transfer to a wire rack for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature. Notes | 2

12: WATTLESEED MUSTERED: Ingredients 250g (1 cup) seeded mustard 15g (1 tablespoon) wattleseed 15ml (1 tablespoon) white wine vinegar 15g (1 tablespoon) castor sugar Cooking instruction In a saucepan, combine the wattleseed ground and vinegar, then bring to the boil. The Wattleseed will start to soften and absorb the vinegar. Add the sugar to balance the tartness of the vinegar and mix well to dissolve it. Remove from heat and mix it into the mustard. If you don’t like strong seeded mustard, then you could actually do 50% seeded mustard and 50% Dijon mustard if you wish. This will offer a smoother mustard flavour and will still complement the Wattleseed flavour. | 12

14: BABY BARRAMUNDI SMOKED IN PAPERBARK: ingredients 1 whole baby barramundi scaled and gutted 1 sheet of Australian paperbark roll 1 teaspoon lemon myrtle sprinkle 1 pinch sea salt Cooking instruction Start off by cutting three deep slits on each side of the baby barramundi. This will help the fish cook faster, as well as allowing the flavour to penetrate the flesh for maximum flavour. Rub the sea salt and lemon myrtle on both sides and place on a plate while you prepare the paperbark. Unroll the paperbark and cut a small amount, sometimes the there are two or three pieces in the roll. As this is a natural product each roll will be different. On occasions, the paperbark is so think that you can actually separate the paperbark in half. | 14

15: Using the stringless side of the paperbark, rub a little oil on the bark then place the whole baby barramundi on the bark. Wrap like a present, then tie with butchers twine, so it wont burn. Then, on a hot grill or frying pan, sear the paperbark till it starts to smoke. Turn the paperbark package over, then again wait till the paperbark is smoking. After that turn the heat right down on the or place in an oven at 200 till medium. The times required can vary depending on how thick the barramundi is. Test the doneness with a skewer or similar. When cooked, remove from the oven and allow to rest. Then cut the paperbark at each end with scissors, then open from the middle and serve on a plate. Garnish with Daintree Pineapple Salsa on top or on the side. Enjoy. | 15

17: Method 1.Cook the kebabs on a griddle plate on medium heat. 2.Can be served with Wasabi for a real nose-snorting treat.

18: Wattleseed pavlova Ingredients 7 egg whites 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon corn flour 1 cups castor sugar 300ml whipped cream 2 tablespoons Wattleseed extract cup crumbed biscuit crumbs Strawberry jam Juice of 1 lemon teaspoon Fruit Spice Method1. Add the Wattleseed extract to the cream and whip until stiff this is best done the day before to allow the full flavour to develop; taste and add more extract if you want a stronger flavour. 2.Whip the egg whites until soft then add the sugar and lemon juice slowly until stiff form. 3.Line a large baking tray with baking paper 4.Spread the pavlova mix over the baking paper in a rectangular shape to a depth of 2cm. 5.Bake at 150C for 10 to 15 minutes or until; it should look like soft meringue at this stage. | 18

19: 6.Remove from the oven and slide it off the tray; sprinkle the top with the crumbed biscuits 7.Flip the meringue over, seasoned side down, onto a clean tea towel and remove the baking paper; if it sticks, place a wet towel which has soaked with really hot water on to the baking paper for 30 seconds; try peeling the paper away again and it should come away cleanly. 8.Spread the Wattle cream evenly over the meringue to a thickness of around 1cm or an inch. 9.Roll up the pavlova using the long edge of the towel; cut the ends on an angle 10.lift the pavlova onto a platter and roll the pavlova off the towel. Styling: 11.Serve with a sour fruit sauce for example, a berry jam mixed with enough lemon juice to taste tart and to pour over the pavlova. 12.I’d add a pinch of Fruit. Spice to this sauce as well to enhance the fruitiness. | 19
