Lyndey Milan’s tiramisu with chocolate and honeycomb

Preparation time
20 mins + 3 hours in fridge
Cooking time
6 min
Serves
4

INGREDIENTS

190ml espresso or double strength coffee

90ml coffee liqueur e.g. Tia Maria or Kahlua

3 egg yolks

½ cup (110g) golden caster sugar

250g tub mascarpone, at room temperature

¾ cup (180ml) cream

½ tsp vanilla extract or paste

200g packet Savoiardi (ladies’ finger biscuits)

Grated chocolate for garnish

Honeycomb

85g caster sugar

1/3 cup (60g) clear honey

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

METHOD

1. Combine coffee and liqueur in a shallow bowl and leave to cool.

2. Place egg yolks and sugar in a medium bowl over boiling water (ensuring bowl does not touch water) over medium heat. Reduce heat to low, beat with electric beaters or hand whisk until very thick and foamy (approximately 15 minutes). Remove from heat and continue to beat until cool. Fold in mascarpone.

3. In a separate bowl, whip cream with vanilla until almost stiff. Gently fold into the mascarpone mixture and set aside.

4. Dip the Savoiardi into the coffee mixture and roll over but don’t soak or they’ll fall apart. Arrange in the bottom of approx.

27 x 16 cm oblong baking dish (or container similarly sized). Spoon half the mascarpone cream filling over the biscuits. Repeat process with another layer of biscuits covered with tiramisu cream. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.

5. Meanwhile for the honeycomb: line a baking tin with baking paper. Gently heat

the sugar and honey with 2 tsp water in a heavy-based pan until melted. Allow to bubble until a deep caramel colour, approx. 5 minutes, then lift off the heat, whisk in the bicarb all at once and quickly tip onto the baking tin to cool. Once cold, slice thinly into shards.

6. To serve, grate chocolate over tiramisu and scatter with honeycomb.

Lyndey’s note: test your baking dish by checking it for size against your savoiardi biscuits, choosing one which will fit half the packet in one layer. Honeycomb will keep for a week in an airtight tin.

Impress: Duncan Welgemoed
Words by Mark Hughes on 28 Jun 2018
On appearances, chef Duncan Welgemoed creates quite an impactful first impression. Broad shouldered, wild haired and inked up, he’s an imposing character. His profanity littered speech and blunt, heavy metal attitude amplify the offering. But one should never judge on first impressions. He’s a true gentleman, a loving husband and father of two, and an inspirational mentor in the kitchen. His tattoos are in fact replicas of famous artworks from the likes of Klimt, Cocteau and Giger. His ‘no holds barred’ style is the result of honesty, dedication and passion. Delicious flavoursome food, South Australia and a great restaurant top his agenda. A colourful journey Raised in the turbulent surrounds of Johannesburg and enduring a troubled childhood, Duncan escaped South Africa for London when he was 17. Mugged of his life savings at a Soho strip club, he fell into cooking as a way to survive. He’s never looked back. Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Fat Duck and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay all appear on his resume. He followed his heart to Adelaide, fell in love with the place and the girl, married and stayed. He helmed French restaurant Bistro Dom for a few years before opening Africola in 2014. Likened to a raucous dop & chop food party, Africola has become the destination for dining in Adelaide. “It started off fairly authentically African,” says Duncan of the restaurant’s evolution. “As we worked through the style of what we wanted to become, it has actually grown to be very Australian, not in terms of using indigenous ingredients or anything, it’s just that we believe that Australia is a beautiful multicultural country and that is what it (Africola) has grown into. “I suppose the biggest thing is, we’ve always wanted to achieve the informality of a South Australian restaurant and today, Africola does just that.” Parochial passions At its heart, Africola is South Australia. Wild, untamed, abundant, exciting. And in his heart, Duncan admits he wouldn’t be the chef he is today if he had set up shop in another part of the world.  “I think the big thing with how Adelaide has transformed who I am as a chef started with the whole country bagging South Australia and Adelaide,” says Duncan. “Moving here and seeing this beautiful place with fresh eyes, I couldn’t understand why people in Sydney and Melbourne would treat Adelaide as Australia’s drunken uncle. It pissed me off. “I know Adelaide had its day in gastronomy in the late 80s/early 90s. They said that’s when it was at its peak, and now it’s having a resurgence. But I believe the food and culture have always been there, it just went underground – that’s where winemakers and chefs started working with artists and musicians to challenge the orthodoxy.” Delicious food circus Through Africola, Duncan delivers that challenge with fervour. Dishes such as Goolwa pipis in fermented chilli and garlic, and padron peppers with almond aioli and katsuobushi, blended with a rock music feel and vibrant surroundings have put Africola on the world dining map. Young chefs from around the globe come to learn its essence, while diners travel from all corners to bask in Africola’s aura. “Being a destination restaurant is kind of weird,” admits Duncan. “We were a community restaurant. We want to be there for the locals who eat there two, three times a week. But because of the hype, or whatever, the word spread that this is a really interesting restaurant that is value for money and is super fun. “It’s like a community driven food circus, entertaining the masses. That’s what we’ve always wanted to become. It doesn’t follow a certain restaurant orthodoxy. I believe orthodoxy belongs in religion, not gastronomy. “So giving the platform for myself and our staff to express ourselves as we only know how, and that is; loud music, delicious food, great booze and great service, is a testament to the great talent I have behind me.”
