Julia’s Spinach And Feta Flatbreads

There is something about the combination of spinach, feta, and fried dough that hits all the right comfort food notes, without being too heavy.

In this recipe, inspired by a weekend snack ritual when shopping  at the farmer’s market, Julia Busuttil Nishimura creates the perfect pillowy pocket to stuff full of delicious fillings, especially for when those cravings hit – YUM!

Once the pastry is wrapped around the tomatoes, the crunchy crust forms a case around the abundant veggies and will contain all their juices. Photo – Eve Wilson for The Design Files.

Julia’s Epic Lemon & Raspberry Layer Cake

In the world of showstopping, special occasion desserts –  Julia‘s nostalgic tiered vanilla sponge takes the cake (sorry not sorry for that pun!) for dishes you can achieve at home.

With fresh raspberries, tart lemon curd and crème fraîche icing folded into layers of pillowy butter cake, this is what you make when it’s time to celebrate something special.

Julia’s Hazelnut Meringues With Roasted Rhubarb

‘One of my favourite things to make for dessert around this time are meringues,’ says Julia Busuttil Nishimura. ‘They are actually rather simple to make and can be all prepared in advance, which is perfect for entertaining. I love serving them on the table with a bowl of roasted fruit and whipped cream. People can then help themselves and pile on as much or as little as the cream and fruit as they want.’
