Place a few inches of water in a large pot, then insert a steamer basket. Bring to a boil and then add the whole cauliflower head. Reduce heat to medium and steam until the base of the cauliflower can be really easily pierced with a sharp knife, 15 to 17 minutes. Arrange oven rack at least 10 - 15cm from the grill and preheat the grill.
Meanwhile, combine the tahini, 1/2 cup warm water, lemon juice, garlic and honey in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Add a pinch of salt and blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust flavouring as desired.
Place the whole head of cauliflower on an aluminium foil-lined tray. Drizzle all over with olive oil (you want to pour it on slowly so the cauliflower soaks it up but don't add so much that it pools on the baking pan). Season all over with a large pinch of salt, then place under the grill. Cook, watching the whole time and rotating the baking tray as needed, until the cauliflower is mostly charred.
Serve with tahini sauce, parsley and a pinch of salt.
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 2-3 minutes until soft. Add garlic, vegetables and nutmeg, then toss to coat. Add stock and 2 cups (500ml) water, then bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 25 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Cool slightly.
In batches, transfer to a blender and whiz until smooth. Return soup to the saucepan and place over low heat. Stir in cream, then season. To serve, ladle into bowls and top with seeds, cranberries and parsley, then drizzle with extra oil.

In a large saucepan, combine the orange peel, flesh, juice, sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the marmalade is translucent. To check for doneness, try the plate test.
Add the lemon juice and cook for 1 minute.

Peeling the oranges means that you remove the peel and the thin white membrane (pith) that protects the citrus fruit segments. With a knife, simply cut off both ends of the orange. Place the fruit on one of its flat bases, to remove the peel of citrus fruit flesh, slide the blade of a knife from top to bottom, then remove any excess pith. This technique is called "blanching" the skin, an important step to reduce the bitterness of most citrus. Plate test - Place a small plate in the freezer for 5 minutes. To check the marmalade is at setting point place a spoonful on the plate and put it back in the freezer for a minute. Id=f the marmalade doesn't run you are good to go - if it does confute cooking and check every few minutes.
Preheat oven to 160°C. Grease and line two large oven trays with baking paper.

For the coulis: In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the raspberries, sugar, orange juice and vanilla. Cook, stirring frequently, until the raspberries are completely broken down and the sauce is syrupy, 10 minutes. Strain, a little at a time, through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, stirring to separate the seeds. Stir the orange zest in the strained sauce. Serve warm or set aside to cool.
Put the eggs in a large bowl and whisk vigorously until frothy. Whisk in the milk and then add the flour, vanilla and salt, and whisk until combined.

Bake until the pancake is puffed and golden brown, 16 to 18 minutes.
