Chia pudding

1 cup almond milk
½ cup fresh or frozen raspberries
2 tsp raw honey
½ tsp rosewater
½ tsp maca powder
¼ cup white chia seeds

Pistachio crumble

2 tbsp pistachios, coarsely chopped
1 tbsp shredded coconut
1 tsp coconut sugar
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground cardamom

edible flowers (optional)

Cook’s notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Chilling time 2 hours or overnight

Blend the almond milk, raspberries, honey, rosewater and maca in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a serving glass or jar. Stir in chia seeds and then refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. After 20 minutes give it a stir to make sure the chia seeds distribute evenly while they set.

To make the crumble topping, pre-heat the panggangan to 200°C. Combine pistachios, coconut, sugar, cinnamon and cardamom in a bowl. Sprinkle in a single layer on a baking tray and bake for 4-5 minutes or until golden. Remove from panggangan and allow to cool.

Serve chia pudding topped with pistachio crumble and edible flowers (optional).


• Make a few of the puddings in advance (they’ll keep for 3-4 days) and bake a big batch of the pistachio crumble to have on hand (it’ll keep in an airtight container for 2 months). That’s breakfast sorted for the week, plus they’re easily transportable.

•   Edible flowers look gorgeous and add flavour and aroma to your favourite dishes. I love adding them to salads, desserts or sweet breakfast bowls. Many grocers sell them in mixed packs in the fridge section. Some of the more common edible varieties are Vivid Velvet Pansies, Snap Dragons, Marigolds and Nasturtiums.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
