Kompot: Middle Eastern Dried Fruit Salad

This exotic, spiced dried fruit kompot is a great way to end any feast.

This is an easy, do-ahead, dairy-free dessert. It’s a lovely way to end a huge feast when no-one really wants much more than a little fruit and the corner of a piece of honey cake.

This exotic, spiced dried fruit kompot (compote) appeared in our second book, The Feast Goes On, with thanks to Ali Sulan and the hosts of country-style B&B, La Veduta at Russell in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand.

    This was the easiest and most delicious dessert I’ve served in years. We had people over yesterday….and everyone has asked for the recipe. For those interested in trying it, I served it with the Apple and Cinnamon Cake which was also amazing. Thank you MMCC girls…I don’t know how I managed before receiving one of your cookbooks as a gift from my daughter.

Looking for a dairy free lemon tart?
 Here it is.

This Lemon Tart is gorgeous and glossy and is a great one to make right now, while lemons are at their peak. And even better If you're lucky enough to have your own lemon tree (or know someone who does).

This cracker of a recipe comes from Melbourne kosher caterer @naomialthaus. One of the greatest challenges if you keep kosher (and therefore don’t mix dairy foods with meat) is making desserts that can be eaten with a ‘meat’ meal. Just as an example, if you make roast beef for your main course, your desserts can’t be made with butter or cream or cheese. It’s quite a challenge! So, when Naomi gave us this recipe some years ago, we were excited to share it. The beauty of the filling is that it is already dairy free, and Naomi makes her pastry with margarine instead of butter and it works really well. We will always go back to butter but we’ve tried it with marg (we used Nuttelex) and it was pretty great!

The recipe is in our second book The Feast Goes On, and it is a winner. Those of us who do not keep kosher will continue to make the pastry using butter, and for those who do, margarine is a great option.

Time to get juicing!
