Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. For the Butternut Pumpkin, rub each wedge of butternut Pumpkin with oil and season generously with sea salt and black pepper. Place on the lined baking tray.
  3. Roast the Pumpkin for about 45-50 minutes, just until the edges have begun to brown slightly (you want to blacken the edges a little to give them a nice chewy texture). Check the Pumpkin is cooked by inserting a knife - if it slides in easily the Pumpkin is cooked.
  4. For the pesto, add the pistachios and cheese to a food processor. Pulse to break them into small pieces and add enough olive oil to slacken the mixture to your desired consistency (you may not need all the oil). Add all the herbs, the chilli (if using) and lemon juice. Pulse again to combine the herbs and add a little more olive oil. Season generously with sea salt and give the mixture one last pulse. Taste the pesto, to make sure it has enough salt and acidity, and allow it to rest in the fridge until you need it.
  5. To serve, serve the butternut Pumpkin on plates, drizzled generously with the pesto. Crumble your feta over the top and scatter some pomegranate seeds over to finish.

Instructions
  1. Season the chicken all over with salt and pepper. In a large zippered plastic bag, combine the olive oil, whole smashed garlic, oregano, thyme, and rosemary. Add the chicken and rub the marinade all over to coat each breast. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or as long as overnight.
  2. Remove the chicken breasts from the bag, letting the excess marinade drip off. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside. Place a large cast-iron or other heavy frying pan over medium-high heat. Have ready a second cast-iron or heavy frying pan that fits just inside the first one, as if they’re nestig.
  3. When the first pan is very hot, add the canola oil. When the oil is hot (it should shimmer but not smoke), put the chicken breasts in the pan skin-side down. Cover with a piece of aluminium foil that just covers the breasts. Place the second frying pan on top of the foil covering the chicken breasts.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, without moving the chicken, until the skin is crispy and a deep golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan and foil, turn the chicken halves over, and continue to cook for about 5 minutes longer or until cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a warm platter and let rest for 10 minutes while you make the sauce.
  5. Return the frying pan to the stovetop over medium-high heat. Add the wine and minced garlic and bring to a boil, scraping the bottom of the pan to loosen any browned bits. Cook for about 4 minutes. Add the butter in pieces, whisking it into the sauce until the sauce is smooth and silky. Transfer the chicken to warmed serving plates and spoon over the sauce.
  6. Serve with braised carrots and steamed seasonal greens.

Instructions
  1. Preheat a grill for cooking over medium heat. Whisk together the ginger, 2 tablespoons coconut milk, 1/4 cup fish sauce, 2 tablespoons honey, juice of 1 lime, half the minced garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl. Pierce the skin of the drumsticks all over with the tip of a knife or fork. Toss the drumsticks with the marinade to coat and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the canola oil in a small saucepan over medium heat and add the remaining garlic. Cook, stirring often, until the garlic is golden, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and whisk in the remaining 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1 teaspoon fish sauce, 1 tablespoon honey and juice of 2 limes. Whisk in the peanut butter and 1 tablespoon water. Stir until well combined and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside.
  3. Grill the drumsticks, turning halfway through and basting twice with the marinade, until they are charred and crisp, 8 minutes. (Discard the remaining marinade.) Reduce the heat to low, then cover and cook until the drumsticks are tender, crisp and cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove the drumsticks to a bowl. Add half of the peanut sauce and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the coriander leaves and serve with the lime wedges and remaining peanut sauce on the side.

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.

Instructions
  1. Pick only parsley leaves, otherwise the sauce will be very bitter. Add all the other salsa verde ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper and the lemon juice.
  2. Cut all the tomatoes in half. Cook the potatoes until soft and half again.
  3. Blanch the green beans/asparagus for 1 minute 30 seconds. As they are still hot, trim into 2inch pieces and add to the salsa. The same with the potatoes. This helps the salsa flavour the ingredients, rather than sit on the ingredients.
  4. Heat a frying pan over a medium high heat. Add the fish skin side down. Season with salt and pepper. Leave in the pan until all the sides are white (cooked) and the skin is just turning brown at the edges. Flip, cook for 1 minute then turn the heat off. Leave the fish in the pan as you plate up.
  5. Once you’ve plated up, then place a fish fillet directly on top.
