Recipe facts:
Takes: 25 mins to prepare and 1 hr 30 mins to cook, 30 mins to cool
Serves: 12


For the filling
4 large eating apples, peeled, cored and sliced thinly
110g pistachios, shelled and finely chopped
110g hazelnuts, finely chopped
1/4tsp ground cloves

For the pastry
225g unsalted butter, melted
350g frozen filo pastry, thawed
410g caster sugar
285ml water
1tbsp honey
1 1/2tsp ground cinnamon
1tbsp sesame seeds

In a large mixing bowl, toss together the ingredients for the filling apart from the apple slices. Cover the thawed filo pastry with a damp cloth.

Brush a 10 inch x 15 inch non-stick, roasting tray with some of the melted butter. Cut the pastry to size and lay one sheet on top of the melted butter. Brush the top with more melted butter. Repeat this process until you have a stack of 8 buttered sheets of filo pastry.

Sprinkle the filling mixture on top and smooth to ensure it is level. Top with a thin layer of apple slices. Brush the top of the apple with melted butter and then repeat the filo pastry layering process until you have a stack of 8 sheets of filo pastry on top with melted butter and apple in between each layer.

Pre-heat the panggangan to 170 degrees. Heat any remaining melted butter until boiling and drizzle over the baklava.  Bake for 1 – 1 ¼ hours until golden all over.

Meanwhile, combine the sugar, honey, water and ground spices in a large saucepan. Bring to boiling point over a medium-high heat and then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes. Set aside this syrup to cool while the baklava finish baking.

Once baked, remove the baklava from the panggangan and allow to sit for 1 minute before pouring the syrup over the top. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds on top of the syrup. Allow to cool a little before cutting into portions and serving.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
