green pea fritters {

IngredIents

2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley 2 organic/free range eggs zest of 1 lemon 150g (5¼ oz) good quality ricotta 1 ½ tablespoons coconut flour (see notes) Pinch of sea salt and pepper

{ reMeMBer } It’s important to cook them over a low, gentle heat on each side until golden and cooked through. serve with a squeeze of lemon and enjoy. You can also accompany with leafy greens or steamed vegetables and drizzle with cold pressed olive oil and lemon.

smash the green peas roughly either by hand or by using a blender or food processor. Make sure to keep it chunky as this is not a puree. Combine the smashed peas into a bowl with parsley, egg, lemon zest and coconut flour. the coconut flour will thicken the mix and allow it to hold its shape when cooking. season with salt and pepper and taste to check.

+ Makes 6 + { nOtes } Coconut flour is available from most health food stores. It can also be replaced with other gluten-free flours such as almond meal or brown rice flour. Quantities of almond meal or rice flour will need to be doubled – just enough so that the fritter will hold its shape when cooked.

Add the ricotta last, smashing it through the pea fritter batter – make sure to leave nice chunky bits of ricotta through the mix. Heat a pan over a low heat with a little olive oil. Cook spoonfuls of pea fritter mixture - as much as you would pikelets or small pancakes. You should get about six green pea fritters.

What does fresh mean to you? Fresh to me means seasonal, farmers’ markets, organic, homemade, homegrown and/or direct from the farm. I grew up in country Victoria and my dad has always be involved in horticulture and the distribution of fruit and vegetables, so this term was very natural and normal to me from an early age. Growing up, my mum made everything, and anything else came from our back yard. We were 99% vegetarians and 100% hippies, not that I even noticed back then. When I was 10 we moved to Queensland, where I would discover that this concept and way of life was not as “normal” as I thought. I was introduced to a world of convenience food. A world that at first won me over. Until my body fought back. Now I value my upbringing and the respect of paddock to plate. So if you’re looking to make a change I would simply suggest purchasing your fresh fruits and vegetables according to their seasons. Makes a huge difference in the “freshness” of the produce.

MCCAFE TRIALLING GLUTEN FREE { C O E L I A C Q U E E N S L A N D P U T S T H R E E MC CAFES T O T H E G L U T E N - F R E E T E S T }

Eating out with confidence is a constant battle for those with coeliac disease.

and training that has been implemented at these stores as part of the Gluten Free Accreditation.

Great news, Coeliac Australia’s Gluten Free Accreditation Program is currently being trialled in the McCafé of three McDonald’s stores in the Hunter Region, New South Wales: Rutherford, Singleton and Greta.

If you own or work in a restaurant, café or catering business, contact Cathy at accreditation@coeliac.org.au to find out how you can be involved in establishing the ‘gold standard’ for providing credible gluten-free options.

The extensive Coeliac Australia Accredited gluten-free menu is available all day in the McCafés only. McDonald’s Australia Limited is currently reviewing the trial.

Here are some frequently asked questions following the recent McCafé accreditation: Can I buy a gluten-free Big Mac?

The gluten-free menu has received rave reviews from those with coeliac disease and from the wider gluten-free community. The Coeliac Australia Gluten Free Accreditation Program works on three main principles: Sourcing: Ensuring all raw ingredients are gluten free. Segregation: Ensuring that the gluten-free ingredients are always kept separate from the gluten-containing products, including when they are delivered, stored, prepared and served to the customer. Being conscious at all times to avoid any risk of cross-contamination exposure. Service: Ensuring that all staff are trained on gluten-free food handling and are aware of coeliac disease. Communication is vital during all stages of the gluten-free meal preparation and service. Denise McKeough, franchisee of the participating McDonald’s Restaurants has expressed her delight in how members have embraced the gluten-free trial. “Our staff have an understanding of what coeliac disease is and why people living with coeliac disease ask the questions they do. Staff feel a sense of pride in knowing that our gluten-free menu is truly gluten free and suitable for someone with coeliac disease. We have invested a lot of time and resources in our training and procedures and are very proud of being able to offer credible gluten-free menu items that are not only affordable but taste delicious.” These three Hunter Region stores have been subjected to a comprehensive in-store audit to confirm that they are following the Coeliac Australia gluten-free guidelines. Coeliac Australia also sent a mystery shopper into the three stores to purchase everything off the menu and then had those items independently tested. All test results reported ‘nil detectable gluten’. These results validate the processes

At this stage, the trial is confined to the McCafé area of the McDonald’s Restaurant in the three Hunter Region stores in NSW. The McCafé area is operated by senior staff and has greater capacity to mitigate the risk of cross-contamination. A dedicated gluten-free preparation area has been introduced to the McCafé Restaurants participating in the trial. Only items listed on the gluten-free menu in the participating stores have been accredited by Coeliac Australia. Why did Coeliac Australia choose to partner with McCafé in the trial? McDonald’s has an enviable reputation in the areas of staff training, strict procedures, quality control and safety. Their products are affordable, family friendly and are accessible to most Australians. McDonald’s is an ideal partner for Coeliac Australia in a gluten-free trial of this kind, as we endeavour to increase the availability of safe and affordable gluten-free food to the gluten-free community.

YUM. | LUKE HINES

LUKE IS LOVING LIFE { AND HE’S INSPIRING THOUSANDS TO LIVE LIFE A N D LOV E I T T O O } Words Michelle Dryburgh

He’s the blonde-haired, blue-eyed nice guy of the healthy eating scene. Shooting to stardom as a contestant on My Kitchen Rules, he’s gone from Bondi PT to trainer to the stars, guiding the likes of Angela Jolie with a personalised fitness regime. Most recently he’s paired up with celebrity chef and paleo icon Pete Evans, taking the real food message to the masses on The Paleo Way tour. Even with a social media following in the tens of thousands and four cookbooks under his belt along with fellow MKR contestant and friend Scott Gooding, Luke Hines is still a down-to-earth, humble, modern day gentleman. “Being published is one of the biggest highlights,” he explains. “Going through an airport or Myer or David Jones and seeing our book on the shelf, it never gets old. I still pinch myself when that happens.” Trainer Luke is funny too, leaving the crowd in stitches during The Paleo Way tour with his on-stage antics. And he’s probably the only personal trainer you’ll ever hear telling people not to work out. All jokes aside, Luke admits exercise is only part of the equation when it comes to achieving a healthy body, and proper nutrition and adequate rest needs to be given priority. “Over-training or training a tired body releases the stress hormone cortisol, which can undo all of your hard work,” he says. “So if it comes down to finishing a shift and deciding between a healthy meal and a good night’s sleep or pushing yourself at the gym, you’re better off going home. You’ll wake up refreshed and in a better position to make smart choices.” Becoming a personal trainer was written in the stars for Luke, who’s had an interest in fitness and clean eating for as long as he can remember. These days he’s better known for his nutritional advice and simple, paleo recipes in the Clean Living cookbook series, but he admits his food philosophy has changed over the years.


YUM. | LUKE HINES

“I always believed I was eating healthy, following advice in fitness blogs and magazines on how to bulk up and get ripped, believing I needed whole grains, low-fat dairy and yoghurt, that kind of thing,” Luke notes. “But I realised I was tired, I was bloated and I didn’t feel that great, I wasn’t achieving the results I wanted to achieve.” When Luke eliminated grains, dairy and processed sugar from his diet, he noticed almost immediate results. “I was scared I was going to waste away and have no energy, but I felt better than ever before. “Once you have a healthy gut system and you’re absorbing maximum nutrients, you feel so much better. Looking back I’m really glad I made the change, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.” Luke radiates positive energy and a genuine passion for helping others achieve a healthy, happy lifestyle. His message is simple, and his advice on balancing maximum nutrition with the right amount of work, rest and play is irrefutable. Any negative media surrounding the paleo way of eating is like water off a duck’s back. He’d rather focus his energy on doing good, like working with Scott on their next cookbook. “The next book is all about celebrations and seasons, so the foods we have at our favourite celebratory times of the year, we’re giving them a clean, gluten-free, paleo spin.” Luke is also working on a new YouTube channel, providing free watchand-learn recipe tutorials, while continuing to work alongside Pete Evans on The Paleo Way online program and writing for Men’s Health Magazine. “Having that opportunity has been really positive because a lot of fitness magazines push supplements and certain styles of training, there’s not a lot of the holistic lifestyle message,” he says. “It’s great being able to show guys they can look good and feel great eating real food.”

Don’t be silenced by anyone else around you. Whether you’re gluten free or coeliac or paleo, everyone’s an expert and haters are gonna hate, just let them be. Don’t let them deter you from achieving what you want to achieve. Be empowered knowing your choices decide where your future goes.

“We get a lot of feedback on The Paleo Way program from people who are going well for a week or two, then they have a birthday or work function and have sugar or grains and feel terrible. More often than not, these people tend to punish themselves and s et up a vicious cycle. You have to break that cycle to get on the path to success.” Luke admits meeting hundreds of those success stories in person during The Paleo Way tour brought tears to his eyes. In the brief moments it took to sign a book, they shared stories of lifechanging transformations, reaffirming Luke’s own devotion to this way of life. “It was incredible seeing the passion in these people’s eyes,” Luke says.

For those looking to incorporate more fresh food into their diet, Luke suggests a one-week challenge of eating nothing from a packet. “It’s a really good test for people and you don’t need to worry about checking labels for gluten or sugar, if you’re just eating real food you know you’re on the right track,” he says.

“Whether they lost weight and gained confidence or they’re better able to manage an illness they’ve been dealing with for so long and their quality of life is increasing, simply making better food choices has brought so much happiness to so many lives.” Luke encourages everyone to find their happy place with food.

“It gets people away from the aisles of the supermarket, focusing instead on fresh vegetables, fruit, poultry, seafood and meat. When people realise it’s achievable, one week turns into two, which turns into four, and you’re on your way.” In the event of falling off the wagon, Luke urges people to remember no one is perfect, smile and get back on track, taking every opportunity to do the right thing by their body.

“Don’t be silenced by anyone else around you. Whether you’re gluten free or coeliac or paleo, everyone’s an expert and haters are gonna hate, just let them be. Don’t let them deter you from achieving what you want to achieve. Be empowered knowing your choices decide where your future goes.” www.trainerluke.com

THRIVING ON FRESH FLAVOURS { M E E T T H E S U P E R H E A LT H Y A N D F I T E N T R E P R E N E U R W H O WA N T S Y O U T O L O O K , F E E L A N D P E R F O R M Y O U R B E S T. } Words Nicole Navarro

Josh Sparks is the founder of THR1VE, a nutritious café rapidly redefining the concept of fast food. It’s been a fast ascent for this Sydney-based entrepreneur and dad, who is originally from Brisbane but now calls beachside Manly “home”. Since his first store opening at Sydney’s MLC Food Court on Martin Place in November 2012, five more stores have opened across Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane. Josh’s goal in the near future is to open between two and four stores per annum. And he’s not limiting the THR1VE brand to food; it’s a lifestyle brand to him, which potentially leaves open a big window of healthy opportunities. Josh, there seems to be a major awakening to fresh, healthy food and good nutrition… what do you think has brought this on? Without wanting to sound flippant about it, because I’m not, just take a look around. On the street, in the press, at schools and universities around the country, in every workplace – far too many of us have been so poorly served by health ‘authorities’, are incredibly frustrated and suffering from everything from excess weight gain to debilitating lifestyle disease, and yo-yo from one diet ‘guru’ to the next, seeking the all too elusive solution. My greatest hope, whether people decide to eat with us at THR1VE or not, is for a critical mass of us to simply try an alternative. If everything you’ve been told, and have diligently put into practice, isn’t working, what’s the


YUM. | JOSH SPARKS

harm in trying a different way? As we say to the many skeptics visiting us for the first time, if you don’t believe us, see your doctor for a physical and blood panel, try it for yourself for 30 days, and check back with your doctor. The results may just astound you both. THR1VE is all about fresh and healthy, real food, real fast… is it strictly paleo? At THR1VE we don’t subscribe to any one ‘diet’, but rather a total lifestyle approach, including a nutrient-dense diet of real foods, excluding gluten-containing grains, and added sugars, based on evolutionary science. Paleo is not defined by any governing body, and is therefore described differently by different proponents, which unfortunately continues the long history of diet-related confusion in the marketplace. Personally, I am more ‘primal’ than ‘paleo’, but honestly I avoid getting into arguments over stylistic differences, and I would rather we focus on the underlying substance that all scientifically validated diets have in common. These are: eat real food, focus on fresh and seasonal vegetables, quality proteins, and some nuts and fruit, avoiding gluten-containing grains and excess or added sugars. What does ‘fresh’ mean to you?

‘Fresh’ means picked, packed and delivered to you within days, a standard our supply chain and we are committed to, for all our produce. The only exception would be frozen Australian and New Zealand berries to satisfy our berry smoothie lovers year round. Tell us about the ‘oh yeah, I’m gonna do it’ moment with THR1VE… The ‘ah ha’ moment was actually more like a series of ‘ah ha’ moments. The realisation, that I simply wouldn’t be professionally or personally satisfied until I created my own brand, came first. And I think it kind of crept up on me over a number of years, delayed mainly because I had been so fortunate in the founders I had worked with, at brands like sass & bide, and Thom Browne New York. Then, as I started to workshop different brand ideas, and I kind of defaulted to fashion lifestyle ideas as that had been my path, I felt an increasing disconnect between what I had focused on professionally, and what I pursued most passionately in my personal life. Every working day was fashion and retail, and every spare moment I was a nerd for high-performance diet and nutrition, paying to fly around the USA to meet the innovators of the space and get self-educated. The final flash of insight, when I truly connected the dots, was a few years into my ancestral health journey in 2011, as I was consulting to retailers and thus constantly in retail environments, starved of something to eat that was definitively ‘healthy’ as I defined it – nutrient dense, fresh and seasonal, gluten free and with no added

sugar. Walking through Westfield Pitt Street in Sydney, I had the long overdue moment of clarity, thinking ‘someone should really do something about this!’. And in the next heartbeat, I was off and running, starting the business plan for THR1VE that day. What are customers saying about THR1VE? Demand has been fantastic. What we hear, every day, is that what we are doing is unique, and that customers have craved it for years. What differentiates us, our customers can truly relate to – a brand that genuinely stands for something, based on a central organising philosophy and supported by science; a menu based on fresh, seasonal and local ingredients; and offering the reassurance and comfort that everything at THR1VE is designed to make you look, feel and perform your best. The feel-good stories are legion, often relating to weight loss, but more and more so now we hear about specific conditions relieved by better eating, including the familiar such as coeliac and gluten intolerance, right through to type 2 diabetes and some autoimmune conditions.

For meals at home do you personally buy organic or farm direct? I don’t habitually buy from a farmers’ market, and I don’t always buy organic. Like most Australians on a budget I am more opportunistic. If it is convenient and affordable, I will, but usually for the weekly shop, I am a big fan of ‘Harris Farms’, buying from their excellent organic selection whenever it makes sense. For those who haven’t yet become acquainted with THR1VE, can you give them a sneak peak of some of the deliciously ‘surprising’ eats and drinks they’ll find there? To start the day I love our breakfast beast bowl of scrambled eggs, bacon, smashed avocado and home made sweet potato bake with cashew cream. For a snack I am partial to either of our green smoothies, on a base of housemade almond or coconut milk, created fresh in store every morning. And for lunch or dinner I build up a bowl of whatever tickles my fancy, today I had raw zucchini ‘zoodles’ and seasonal mash for the base, grass-fed beef burger with paleo mustard for main, and a side of chilli almond broccoli. When and why did you decide to go almost completely gluten free?

Most exciting to me are those who have shared how adopting the THR1VE lifestyle has changed how they feel about themselves. My favourite ever is one of our 8-Week Challenge winners who told me she felt sexy for the first time in her life, and was fully exploiting the feeling!

I am not coeliac, and I display no observable symptoms that would classify me as gluten intolerant. Nonetheless, I am 99% gluten free for a couple of reasons. First of all, eliminating processed foods such as breads and pasta, easily cuts down on gluten intake dramatically.


YUM. | JOSH SPARKS

Having done so I found I got leaner and stronger, and enjoyed higher and more consistent energy, without even trying to. Secondly, I replaced those processed foods on my plate with more fresh produce, increasing my nutrient density and diversity significantly, and again without any real effort. Finally, the research on gluten and neurological health, particularly that related to Alzheimer’s, is frankly terrifying. I mean no one wants to be overweight, but losing my ability to think clearly and remember loved ones, is frankly a lot scarier to me. Gluten sucks. Let’s just get that straight, eliminate it to the extent possible and ideally completely, and then everything positive that flows downstream from that is a whole lot easier to access. Where’s your favourite chillout place and what do you do there? That’s a great question, and I wish I had a better answer for it, because it would mean I was actually chilling out! The irony of building a brand focused on bringing transformative health and wellness to others, is that you tend to ‘deprioritise’ your own! I am very consistent with exercise, semi-consistent with meditation, but hopeless when it comes to taking time out. So this year I have decided to focus on it. My partner and I have had a couple of lovely weekends away with great friends at their beach house at Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast a couple of months back, and most recently last weekend on Hayman Island. I absolutely loved the Gold Coast, it is a totally different world to the one I grew up with, and the dining scene in Mermaid through to Burleigh is awesome, with multiple primal, paleo and locavore options. Can you share with us your average daily fitness schedule?

response it generates. Think of it as the hunting aspect of hunting and gathering. And of course the daily walking mimics the more leisurely gathering aspects of our ancestral life. We say it constantly, but it was a revelation to me when I discovered it, so it is worth repeating – 80% of optimal body composition, and all the health benefits it provides, is derived from what you eat, and what you don’t eat. Exercise is the finishing 20%. Finally, given your passion for fitness, will THR1VE venture there? At THR1VE, we are passionate advocates of an entire lifestyle, drawing on the proven science of evolutionary biology and ancestral health, to direct how we should eat, move and rest. So although our retail focus is our menu of delicious healthiness, we want you to think holistically, so we partner with thought leaders in the space of exercise, meditation, yoga, and functional medicine, and provide as much lifestyle-related guidance as we can. (Check out our blog, social media, and our community events such as the three-day THR1VE. me conference for a sense of how seriously we take this.) However, in doing so, we are suggestive not prescriptive – ultimately there is no single prescription of what you MUST do, but there is ample peerreviewed scientific evidence of things you probably SHOULDN’T do, in order to better align with the lessons of evolution. www.thr1ve.me www.facebook.com/THR1VEME

JOSH’S FAVOURITE HERBS AND SPICES

I, like many of our customers, am a little busier than I would ideally like. So my focus is on achieving the “minimum effective dose”, as Tim Ferris would describe it. For me, to maintain approximately 10% body fat (lean but not super lean), and the strength and endurance I had at university (back in the middle ages), I train pretty intensely with weights for 30 minutes twice a week, interval sprint on the track, beach or bike for 10 to 12 minutes every 10 to 14 days, and walk as much as I can, every day. The intensity of the strength training and the interval sprints is key, you are looking at creating a metabolic cascade of muscle building and fat-burning hormones, based on the so-called ‘fight or flight’ response. It’s about mimicking the kind of life or death effort that evolution has prepared us for, and triggering the positive systemic

I am particularly mad for garlic, turmeric, ginger, basil, flat leaf parsley, chilli and cayenne, nutmeg, cinnamon, thyme, paprika, and rosemary. The list could go on, but I will stop there. What I love about herbs and spices is that beyond the amazing flavour they offer, and the preservation they can add to food you will keep for leftovers or for storage, they provide a whole host of functional benefits; ‘let food by thy medicine’, and all that jazz.

FRESH PRESSED JUICE IN A JAR { BRISBANE’S COOLEST NEW JUICE IS CONVENIENT TOO } Words Michelle Dryburgh

HRVST ST may be the new kid on the block in the world of juice, but it’s already making waves on the Brisbane health scene.

the co-founder of Hrvst St along with Llyse Filipuzzi.

The raw, cold-pressed juice is made in Brisbane from fresh, local ingredients, without heat, pasteurisation or additives. It’s naturally free of gluten, added sugar and preservatives and it’s vegan-friendly too.

“We wanted to represent a hand-crafted product and loved the idea of a glass jar. It gives customers an amazing experience of not only drinking a beautiful, clean, fresh cold-pressed juice but they’re able to keep that experience and continue it afterwards by having a cool jar to take home and recycle for something they love.”

As an environmentally-conscious product, it comes in a screw-top glass jar that can be used again and again. Even the jars and labels are sourced locally, and just like the delicious juice product, the logo is hand-crafted and made with love, created by pressing paint between two pieces of paper.

Adding to the convenience, Hrvst St offers a free weekly delivery service to cafes and homes across Brisbane. It’s all part and parcel of Allie and Llyse’s labour of love.

“I’ve seen cafes re-use the jars on tables for their raw sugar and some customers use them to hold plants, as pencil jars and my favourite, to hold clean, fresh muesli to take to work each day,” says Allie Harris,

The pair launched Hrvst St with social media ‘teasing’ before unveiling the range, which includes three unique flavours. There’s Endless Summer: Lemon, pineapple and cayenne pepper; Little Green: Kale, cucumber, green apple and ginger; and Bloodbank:


YUM. | CAFE

Beetroot, lime, ginger and cucumber. “We knew we wanted to start simple with three juices – just a normal basic green juice, a red beetroot juice, and something yellow – which was a bit of a fluke and took less than an hour to formulate.” Endless Summer combines sweet and sour with a peppery bite, an unplanned combination that worked. “We thought maybe some people wouldn’t like it, but surprisingly it’s become the most popular.” Allie and Llyse have combined 15 years experience in health, sales, marketing and retail with a passion for juicing and healthy living to develop their brand. They continue to work full-time in their regular day jobs, while spending nights working on their labour of love, cold pressing and bottling Hrvst St juices in a commercial kitchen in South Brisbane. The range has been introduced to cafes across Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast in just the past few months and now boasts 12 official stockists. “We are passionate about small business and want to incorporate our passion and knowledge of cold press juicing to help local businesses offer something to customers they may not have the time or equipment to do so themselves,” says Allie. “We’ve been getting so much support from the cafes and so much lovely feedback from customers, it’s really overwhelming.”

The process of cold-pressing fruit and vegetables makes for a crisp, fresh tasting juice with a clean mouth feel. It is also believed to help preserve vitamins and minerals and increase absorption of nutrients. “In a regular blender the fruit is heated as it gets chopped up, which causes a lot of bruising to the fruit and vegetables,” says Llyse. “By hydraulically pressing the produce, it comes out as a liquid and the body doesn’t have to work as hard to absorb it.” Both following healthy, clean-eating lifestyles, Allie and Llyse considered opening a café before deciding to stick to what they knew best. Juicing was a regular part of their daily routine and they hoped others could benefit from their passion. They are blown away by the response so far and excited for what the future has in store for Hrvst St. “Working full-time jobs as well, there’s not a lot of hours in the day to sleep or rest, but we’re working really hard to build this, to bring something we’re passionate about to people who want a healthy product, something that’s really good for them,” says Allie. “You get tired and sometimes start to question yourself, wonder are we doing the right thing? Then we get a comment on social media from someone who’s just tried our juice telling us how much they love it. It’s a reminder of why we’re doing this. That’s what keeps us going.” www.hrvstst.com.au

CHILLED CUCUMBER & MINT SOUP {

INGREDIENTS

}

4 cucumbers, peeled 1 clove garlic 1 cup plain yoghurt, or creme fraiche juice of 1 lemon 1/4 cup of water 4 spring onions, roughly chopped 3/4 cup mint leaves, no stems (1 small handful) salt and pepper

Peel all 4 cucumbers and then slice them all in half lengthways. Use a teaspoon to scoop out the watery seeds. Pop one of the halves to one side for later. Roughly chop the rest of the cucumber and bung it in the blender, or food processor. Add the garlic, yoghurt/creme fraiche, lemon juice and water. Give it a really good blend until it’s lovely and smooth. Add the sliced spring onions and the mint leaves. Season. Blitz again until it’s gorgeously smooth. Add a little more salt and pepper if necessary or maybe a bit more lemon juice if you think it needs it. Pop in the fridge to chill for at least 3 hours before serving. This is brilliant to make the day before, so it’s perfect for hassle-free entertaining. Make sure you pop your bowls in the fridge for an hour before you eat, so that the whole thing is wonderfully cold when served.

TO SERVE: Scoop the chilled soup into the chilled bowls. Dice the remaining cucumber for the garnish, drizzle them with a hint of olive oil and pinch of salt and pepper.

ONE YEAR ON OVEREND { BRINGING SPECIALITY COFFEE TO THE SUBURBS } Words Michelle Dryburgh

You know you’re in safe hands when the café owner is coeliac. That’s why gluten-free diners are flocking to Dovetail on Overend, a hole in the wall coffee house nestled just outside of Brisbane’s CBD. Named by Beanhunter as one of Brisbane’s Top Cafes in 2014, the café serves award-winning coffee and delightful brunches. All of the desserts are gluten free, while dairy-free and vegan options are available. The pretty-as-a-picture café is a dream come true for coeliac Adam Thomson and his wife Rejoice, who shared a vision for providing a friendly, safe and welcoming dining experience for the gluten free. “We both immediately fell in love with the site we chose for Dovetail. It’s such a picturesque and tranquil location, set right in the middle of one of Brisbane’s most beautiful suburbs. “Although we are only a few minutes from the CBD, we aren’t

located in a busy commercial district. So we knew we had to create a unique destination café with deep ties to our local community.” Proving his commitment to coeliac safety, Adam has assigned exclusive gluten-free zones in the kitchen and staff are trained in allergy awareness. Best of all, Dovetail on Overend promises never to charge extra for gluten-free options. “Being coeliac myself, I have a deep understanding of all the challenges people like me are faced with when eating out,” says Adam. “There have been so many times I paid extra for a smaller and lesser quality dish, or ended up feeling unwell. I knew we could do much better.” Diners are treated to an inviting alfresco area and communal bench, which has set the scene for new friendships, rekindling old ones and

even forming mothers’ groups over a coffee, or two. The signature dish ‘Dovetail Supreme’ is an epic combination of Baked Eggs #7, two free range eggs baked on a beef chilli con carne base with goats cheese, topped with the house Caponata Siciliana, a mix of grilled eggplant, capsicum and caramelised onion, and two slices of toasted gluten-free pumpkin bread. For something lighter there’s the Avocado with Goats Cheese and Dukkah on Gluten Free Toast. No visit to Dovetail is complete without an Uncle Joe’s coffee. The 1+1, an espresso and a piccolo, come highly recommended, with milk options including local A2 dairy, lactose free, soy and almond. And be sure to leave room for dessert, with offerings like gluten-free Nodo Donuts and Rejoice’s own baked goods. It’s a long road from Adam’s former career in IT. Perhaps those long hours at a computer screen were to blame, but a few years ago he found himself thinking about coffee around the clock. “I started doing cafe reviews both for my own research and because I felt there was an opportunity to contribute to the local specialty coffee movement. I also got to know a lot of people in the scene during that time, and felt a connection with them. “At the same time Rejoice had taken baking from a hobby to a serious passion. In 2012, things just fell into place and I felt the time was right to walk away from IT to focus 100% on coffee.” Adam says the experience of working at Uncle Joe’s Coffee

House made him extremely passionate about the coffee he serves up at Dovetail. “Our local roaster, who is also a long-time friend, is also quite humble in his approach. He still comes and washes our dishes sometimes,” laughs Adam. “It’s fair to say Uncle Joe’s is definitely one of the most talked about coffee roasters in the country right now, having won some pretty significant awards in the last 12 months.” But as every food lover knows, great food and coffee are only one part of the equation. Customer service is essential to complete the package. “Rejoice and I have also been fortunate to have attracted such a customer-focused and talented team, and it’s one of the main reasons we were recently named by Beanhunter as one of Brisbane’s Top Cafes in 2014,” says Adam. “Any café owner will tell you how important it is to have the right team, and ours is like a big family.” Adam reveals it was while working at Uncle Joe’s Coffee House he fell in love with the dream of running a successful, suburban café. Now that dream is one year old. Happy Birthday Dovetail! 85 Overend Street, Norman Park www.facebook.com/DovetailOnOverend

Transfer rice to the tart tray and use your hands to press down evenly, covering the bottom and sides. Gently press a piece of baking paper on top of the rice and bake for 10 minutes. TO PREPARE THE FILLING: While the rice is cooking, peel and slice beetroots into small wedges and place in an oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and season well. Tightly cover tray with foil and bake for approximately 40 minutes until cooked through. Stir and check at intervals.

BROWN RICE CRUST 1/2 cup brown rice 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 egg FILLING 3 ½ eggs 2 beetroots balsamic vinegar olive oil 100g soft goats cheese 1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped 1/2 cup fennel, thinly sliced salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 200°C and grease a 8 or 9-inch tart tray. CRUST: Rinse brown rice, then place in a small saucepan with salt, and cook according to instructions – I recommend 1 1/3 cups

In a small fry pan heat a generous drizzle of olive oil on medium heat and fry fennel. Stir and cook until translucent, soft and browning at the edges. Set aside. Toast walnuts, either in the fry pan or on a piece of foil in the oven, for approximately 5 minutes. Put the tart together by layering ingredients into the crust – roasted beetroot, caramelised fennel, toasted walnuts, pieces of goats cheese. Season well with salt and pepper as you layer then pour the whisked eggs over the top. Bake for 20 – 30 minutes, or until the egg sets. Place the tart under the grill for the last 5 minutes to speed up the process – just keep a close eye to not burn the top. Remove from oven and allow it to rest for at least 30 minutes before serving. + Serves 2 - 4 + Prep: 40 min. Cook: 30 min.

LEMON TART {

INGREDIENTS

}

1/4 cup almond meal 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp coconut flour 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp baking soda 1/4 cup coconut oil, softened 1/4 cup maple syrup (you could substitute honey etc) 1 egg 1 tsp vanilla extract LEMON FILLING: 4 eggs 1/2 cup maple syrup 3/4 cup coconut cream (place open can in fridge overnight and spoon off the thick cream from the top) 150ml lemon juice zest of 1 lemon

LEMON CURD {

PIE CRUST: Preheat oven to 175°C. Grease/Spray a 20cm spring form cake tin or pie dish (a 22cm can also be used). Mix the dry ingredients in a blender. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and blend until combined. A dough ball will form. Roll the doughnut between 2 sheets of baking paper and trace a plate/tin bigger than tart tin. Gently place circle in tin. Use excess dough to ensure an even edge. Alternatively, spread dough evenly in tin and up edges by hand. Pierce the bottom of pie crust with a knife 4 to 5 times to prevent the dough ‘bubbling’. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the bottom is cooked without the edges burning. Remove from the oven and make the lemon filling. LEMON FILLING: Reduce the oven temperature to 150ºC. Place the eggs and maple syrup in the bowl of a kitchen stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Whisk until pale and just thickened (approximately 3 minutes). Lightly whisk or stir in the coconut cream, lemon juice and zest until combined and no white lumps of cream are visible. Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes then skim off the foam that has risen and settled on the top. Pour the mixture into the baked pie crust and bake for 50 to 55 minutes. The tart is ready when the top is set but the filling is still a bit wobbly underneath. Allow the tart to cool to room temperature then place in the fridge for at least 1 hour (but preferably overnight). Serve by itself or with whipped coconut cream. Keep refrigerated when not eating.

3 eggs 2 egg yolks 1/2 cup maple syrup zest of 1 to 2 lemons (start with 1, increase depending on taste) 2/3 cup lemon juice 1/2 cup coconut oil (softened slightly) Whisk the eggs, egg yolks, maple syrup, lemon zest and juice in a heat proof bowl until the mixture is well combined. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water. Do not let the bottom of the bowl touch the water. Add the coconut oil 1 spoonful at a time. Whisk after each addition. Only add the next spoonful once the previous one has combined. Stir regularly. This should take approximately 15 minutes. When done the mixture will be thickened and able to coat the back of the spoon. Pour the curd into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge. + Serves 12 + Prep: 15 min. Cook: 30 min.

dough ‘bubbling’. Bake for 15 minutes and then cool completely. If using a spring form tin, remove the crust and place on a serving tray. This may be more difficult if using a pie tin and you may choose to construct the pie and serve from the tin. Place the cooled pistachio pie crust on a serving plate and fill with 1 and 1/3 cups of cooled lemon curd. The curd may need to be gently whisked/ stirred if it has become too stiff. Place the filled pie crust in the fridge to allow the curd to re-set for at least 30 minutes before adding the meringue.

LEMON PISTACHIO PIE {

INGREDIENTS

}

1 Serve lemon curd (see recipe on previous page) (divide into 1½ cup and 2/3 cup of curd) MERINGUE:

2 egg whites 1/4 cup maple syrup

MERINGUE: Place the egg whites in the clean bowl of a kitchen stand mixer with a whisk attachment. Bring the maple syrup and 2 tablespoons of water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whilst the maple syrup is reaching boiling temperature, begin whisking the eggs on medium until soft peaks are formed. Slowly pour the boiling mixture down the side of the mixing bowl. DO NOT pour directly onto the egg whites as it may cause them to cook. You may need to turn the whisk to low to prevent hot burning splashes. Turn the whisk to high and continue to whisk until the mixture has cooled and stiff peaks have formed (this will take 5 to 7 minutes). Meanwhile, place the remaining 2/3 cup of lemon curd in a bowl and stir to loosen the curd (it may have set in the fridge). Gently fold the stiff meringue into the curd until the just combined.

PIE CRUST 1/4 cup ground pistachios 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp coconut flour 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp baking soda 1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
