Rugby has been kind of a universal language for the past few months. On numerous occasions I have found myself talking to strangers about such topics as Dan Carter’s groin injury, a non-regulation mouth guard, the strength of backs or the speed of forwards. I love rugby and it’s thanks to this event that I’ve have had a positively enjoyable winter. Unfortunately there are only 2 weeks to go and then I suppose we will have to take down the flags strewn colourfully around the office and say farewell to our vibrant visitors.
The party will be over and us Kiwis will be left crying “where has everyone gone, come on, it’s only early”.
This recipe is for a vegetarian tart but there is something really different and beautiful about the pastry which is used. It is rich and dark, soy-infused and speckled with black sesame. And if you don’t like my mushroom and feta combination, use whatever you like.
