Ingredients

1 1/4 cups warm water
7g sachet dried yeast
1 teaspoon caster sugar
2 3/4 cups plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 small eggplant, cut into 1cm cubes
1/2 small brown onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
400g lean beef mince
100g baby spinach
1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
100g feta, crumbled
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Method

Step 1 Combine warm water, yeast and sugar in a jug. Whisk to dissolve yeast. Stand in a warm place for 10 minutes or until frothy.

Step 2 Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Add yeast mixture and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Mix to form a soft dough. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 5 minutes or until elastic. Place in a lightly greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and stand in a warm place for 30 minutes or until dough doubles in size.

Step 3 Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add eggplant. Cook, stirring, for 6 to 7 minutes or until eggplant is tender. Drain on paper towel. Add onion and garlic to pan. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until onion has softened. Add mince. Cook, stirring, for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned. Add spinach, chilli and reserved eggplant. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until spinach has wilted and mince is cooked. Remove from heat. Stir through feta and lemon juice.

Step 4 Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Roll 1 piece into a 32cm x 20cm rectangle. Place a quarter of the eggplant mixture over one half of rectangle. Brush opposite edge with water. Fold dough over to enclose filling. Press edges together to seal. Repeat with remaining dough and eggplant.

Step 5 Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Brush one side of each gozleme with half the remaining oil. Cook for 3 minutes or until base is golden. Brush uncooked side using remaining oil. Turn over. Cook for 3 minutes or until golden and crisp. Transfer to a board. Cut each gozleme into 8 slices. Serve.

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.
