Multiculturalism on a plate

Red wine & lentil & vegetable stew with thyme and basil accompanied by flathead fillets coated in dukkah - a north African paste of nuts and seeds (sesame, coriander, cumin seeds & hazelnuts). Yes, I know the combination doesn't technically complement each other, but what can I say? I live in a multicultural society. :-)
Modern Australia on a plate!


  • hey niki
    oh yesss, this dish is definitely very aussie! I am glad I live in Australia - I can get every sort of food ingredient from around the world!
    Hmmm north african paste just sounds so exotic! Did you make the paste yourself?

  • Sounds interesting. Did you make the nut paste yourself? Is there a recipe for it?

  • Pinkcocoa - I often think how lucky we are living in Australia. It's safe, it's multicultural, it's beautiful. No matter where I've travelled in the world, I always appreciate coming home. :-)

    Pinkcocoa, Ana and Gwenda - I've put up another post about dukkah, which answers your question!
