Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Grease and line a 20cm square cake pan (if you are using a loose-bottomed pan, place a folded sheet of foil around the base in case some of the maple syrup leaks).
  2. Pour maple syrup into the base of the pan. Slice bananas in half lengthways and layer them, cut-side down, in the pan. Using a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar until thick and pale. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla, then fold in the our, nuts, bicarb and cinnamon.
  3. Fold in yoghurt until combined. Carefully spread the batter over bananas in pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Pierce hot cake all over with a skewer, then drizzle over rum.
  4. Set aside for 2 minutes to soak, then remove the cake from pan and transfer, bottom-side up, to a wire rack to cool slightly.
  5. For the Bundy rum sauce, place the butter, cream, sugar and maple syrup in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the butter melts. Cook for a further 10 minutes or until thickened slightly.
  6. Remove from heat and stir through rum. Set aside to cool slightly . Drizzle warm cake with a little rum sauce and serve with ice cream and remaining sauce on the side.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180°. Toast hazelnuts on a rimmed baking sheet tossing once, until golden brown, 20–25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, toast pumpkin seeds on a separate baking sheet, tossing once, until just beginning to brown in a few spots and very fragrant, 14–16 minutes.
  3. Let hazelnuts and pumpkin seeds cool. Purée in a food processor until a smooth paste forms (this will take several minutes and you will need to scrape down sides a few times.) Taste and season hazelnut–pumpkin seed butter with kosher salt.
  4. Finely grind blueberries, red pepper flakes, and a pinch of kosher salt in spice mill or with mortar and pestle. Drizzle toast with 2 Tbsp. oil and spread 2 Tbsp. hazelnut–pumpkin seed butter over each. Top with mango; drizzle with honey and oil. Sprinkle with blueberry–red pepper mixture and sea salt.

Instructions
  1. Place four 14x12" sheets of parchment paper, or heavy-duty foil if grilling, on a work surface. Divide zucchini among parchment sheets, arranging on one side of sheet in thin layers. Sprinkle shallots and sliced basil over, dividing equally. Scatter tomato halves around zucchini. Drizzle each packet with 1 Tbsp. wine and 1/2 Tbsp. oil (add 1/2 Tbsp. water to each if grilling). Season with salt and pepper. Place a fish fillet atop each portion. Season with salt and pepper; drizzle 1/2 Tbsp. oil over each.
  2. Fold parchment over mixture and crimp edges tightly to form a sealed packet. DO AHEAD: Can be made 4 hours ahead. Chill. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before continuing.
  3. Preheat oven to 200c. Place packets in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Alternatively, build a medium fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to medium-high. Bake or grill fish until just cooked through (a toothpick poked through the parchment will slide through fish easily), about 10 minutes. Carefully cut open packets (steam will escape). Garnish with basil leaves.
