Celebrate Matariki with<br />

Tīrama Mai light show<br />

CHECK OUT new<br />

commissioned artworks, take<br />

home a free tree, and soak<br />

in the city sights illuminated<br />

by Tīrama Mai this Puaka-<br />

Matariki.<br />

The city council’s annual<br />

Tīrama Mai event starts at the<br />

weekend, celebrating Puaka-<br />

Matariki in the heart of the city.<br />

Te Matatiki Toi Ora The Art<br />

Centre, Te Pae and Riverside<br />

Market will feature a range of<br />

art and lighting installations<br />

each evening from 5pm until<br />

10pm, from tomorrow until<br />

Sunday, <strong>June</strong> 30.<br />

City council manager of<br />

events and arts Lucy Blackmore<br />

said the annual event, which<br />

celebrates the Puaka and Matariki<br />

stars through art and light<br />

installations, projections, music<br />

soundscapes and storytelling is<br />

always evolving with new commissioned<br />

works.<br />

“An installation of<br />

Papatūānuku, titled MOTHER,<br />

will stand four metres high and<br />

two metres wide, featuring a<br />

stunning design by Xoë Hall, lit<br />

up from inside,” Blackmore said.<br />

It will be in the North Quad of<br />

The Art Centre.<br />

“We’ve also partnered with<br />

Trees for Canterbury to give<br />

away <strong>20</strong>00 small native trees<br />

over the festival. Planting a new<br />

tree in your backyard is a great<br />

way to celebrate the time of<br />

renewal that Te Tau Hou (the<br />

Māori New Year) brings, and we<br />

encourage people to take up this<br />

opportunity.”<br />

On select nights, the giveaway<br />

will be based in front of Te<br />

Pae.<br />

Te Pae has close to 10 installations,<br />

including new lightbox<br />

artworks and a projection animation<br />

by Ariki Creative.<br />

“Other giveaways during the<br />

festival include light-up yo-yos<br />

from our sponsor, Orion, for the<br />

young and young of heart, and<br />

a free sausage sizzle run by The<br />

Hits FM,” Blackmore said.<br />

There will also be storytelling<br />

and kapa haka performances on<br />

select nights. The “test night” for<br />

Tirama Mai is this evening.<br />

The Arts Centre will be<br />

hosting a number of events,<br />

including Te Waiatatanga Mai<br />

o Te Atua (Song of the Gods),<br />

a brand-new exhibition at the<br />

Observatory tower which tells a<br />

version of the Ngāi Tahu creation<br />

story, as written down in<br />

1849 by Matiaha Tiramōrehu.<br />

The Matariki Midwinter<br />

Celebration invites attendees to<br />

honour a loved one who made<br />

a significant impact this year,<br />

while the two-night Garden<br />

City Mākete will feature local<br />

artisans, live performances, and<br />

food offerings. There will also be<br />

kapa haka in the Great Hall.<br />

Matariki<br />

Matariki, the Māori<br />

New Year, is a time of<br />

cultural and spiritual<br />

significance. The<br />

annual event marks<br />

the appearance of<br />

the Matariki star<br />

cluster, also known as<br />

Pleiades, in the early<br />

morning sky.<br />

When these nine<br />

stars become visible, it<br />

signifies the start of a<br />

new year in the Māori<br />

lunar calendar.<br />

Matariki comes<br />

from the phrase<br />

“Ngā mata o te ariki<br />

Tāwhirimātea”, “the<br />

eyes of the god<br />

Tāwhirimātea” and<br />

translates to “little<br />

eyes”, highlighting the<br />

stars’ role as important<br />

markers of time and<br />

seasonal change.<br />

The exact date<br />

varies each year, as it<br />

is determined by the<br />

appearance of the<br />

Matariki star cluster in<br />

the predawn sky.<br />

Confusing roadworks information<br />

sees new idea floated at meeting<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

A NEW system for giving<br />

the public advance notice of<br />

roadworks closures in Banks<br />

Peninsula has been floated, as a<br />

result of recent confusion.<br />

In the past three months, there<br />

have been three maintenance<br />

roadworks closures on Governors<br />

Bay Rd, one in March and two in<br />

May.<br />

Governors Bay Community<br />

Association chair John Bannock<br />

said residents have been confused<br />

by conflicting information<br />

displayed on the city council<br />

website and roadside signage.<br />

“They’re very rarely saying the<br />

same thing. So that’s set up an air<br />

of confusion straight away.”<br />

Bannock has suggested putting<br />

city council staff in charge of<br />

communications during maintenance<br />

on critical routes, like<br />

Governors Bay Rd.<br />

Currently, when there are major<br />

roadworks, city council staff are<br />

in charge of communicating with<br />

the public. When there<br />

are maintenance works,<br />

contractors are in charge of<br />

communications.<br />

Bannock believes city council<br />

staff with a better knowledge<br />

of affected communities’ needs<br />

should deliver communications<br />

on these routes, rather than contractors.<br />

“I don’t think a contractor<br />

working out of Lyttelton would<br />

consider that Diamond Harbour<br />

and Port Levy would be affected<br />

parties,” Bannock said.<br />

He said having the contractor<br />

communicating road closures for<br />

maintenance work gave them too<br />

much workload.<br />

However, city council head of<br />

transport Lynette Ellis said her<br />

team has “full confidence” in contractors’<br />

abilities to deliver effective<br />

communications to residents.<br />

She said the Governors Bay<br />

resurfacing work in May “was no<br />

exception”.<br />

“Our maintenance contractors<br />

work on approximately 2415<br />

projects a year across the entire<br />

network, therefore if council is to<br />

manage all communications for<br />

this work we need to rely on our<br />

contractor teams.”<br />

Ellis declined to comment on<br />

the merits of giving council staff<br />

responsibility over communications<br />

for critical routes only.<br />

Bannock feels the transport<br />

team is missing his point.<br />

“I think it’s unreasonable to<br />

expect contractors to determine<br />

the extent of contacts required for<br />

some roads.”<br />

He voiced his concerns at the<br />

Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū Banks<br />

Peninsula Community Board<br />

meeting on <strong>June</strong> 10.<br />

“I really think that the council<br />

needs to understand that the<br />

Banks Peninsula area isn’t a town.<br />

We don’t have multiple detour<br />

options.”<br />

The community board requested<br />

staff advice regarding<br />

community notifications.<br />

Bannock hopes the community<br />

board investigation process will<br />

change the minds of the transport<br />

team.<br />

He also said communications<br />

through more channels would<br />

help the affected residents better<br />

adapt their personal schedules.<br />

“Even a poster in the typical<br />

places people visit would be a big<br />

help.”<br />

On the Governors Bay Community<br />

Facebook page, residents<br />

said signage about recent closures<br />

differed from information they<br />

had received in a flier.<br />

Banks Peninsula city councillor<br />

Tyrone Fields did not have a view<br />

on Bannock’s idea, but believed<br />

staff would find a solution.<br />

CONFLICTING: Residents were confused to see this<br />

sign last month indicating Governors Bay Rd would be<br />

closed daily from May 13 to <strong>June</strong> 17. On the Governors<br />

Bay Community Facebook page, residents said the dates<br />

differed from those in a flier they received.<br />

The Ritual Effect by Michael Norton<br />

The Transformative Power of Our Everyday Actions<br />

In this ground-breaking and inspiring guide, a renowned Harvard psychologist<br />

demonstrates how turning everyday habits into rituals can improve our work, our<br />

relationships and our lives. These rituals- practices are imbued with symbolic<br />

meaning. And they have the power to turn black-and-white moments into<br />

technicolour. Along the way, Norton shares stories from sporting superstars (Serena<br />

Williams always bouncing the ball five times before her first serve) Rituals can help<br />

us to forge winning teams, heal families experiencing grief and encourage us rise to<br />

challenges, big or small. Now it’s time to create yours.<br />

The Hazelbourne Ladies Motorcycle and Flying Club<br />

By Helen Simonson<br />

The Hazelbourne Ladies Motorcycle and Flying Club captures the ambitions, The<br />

Hazelbourne Ladies Motorcycle and Flying Club captures the ambitions, frustrations,<br />

and inevitable tragedies of women and men emerging from the Great War. After the<br />

war as the country prepares to celebrate its hard-won peace, Constance and the<br />

women of the club are forced to confront the fact that the freedoms they gained<br />

during the war are being revoked. With sharp humor, biting wit, and a warm heart,<br />

Simonson captures the mood of a generation facing the seismic changes brought on<br />

by war. This book is a timeless comedy of manners, refreshing as a summer breeze<br />

Teachers run to raise funds for sick mum<br />

• By Jessie Curran<br />

TWO TEACHERS raised more<br />

than $1000 a day for each day<br />

they pounded the pavement.<br />

Thomas Tennent, of<br />

Cashmere, and Daniel Kahura,<br />

of Yaldhurst, ran 21km before<br />

work for 21 days to support<br />

Kahura’s sister, Kylie Kahura,<br />

who has stage 4B Hodgkin<br />

lymphoma.<br />

Kahura and Tennent both<br />

attended and now teach at St<br />

Thomas of Canterbury College.<br />

Kylie, 35, a mother of four,<br />

received her diagnosis in <strong>20</strong>22.<br />

Despite the all-clear after<br />

chemotherapy, her cancer<br />

returned with increased<br />

aggression late last year.<br />

“Now it’s just a waiting game,”<br />

said Kylie, who awaits further<br />

scans after she completed<br />

another round of chemotherapy,<br />

blood transfusions, and a stem<br />

cell transplant.<br />

The Sockburn resident is now<br />

enjoying spending time with her<br />

family.<br />

She said she was “truly blown<br />

away” by the support from the<br />

pair and wider community.<br />

“I am just so grateful and<br />

blessed,” she said.<br />

Tennent, 33, proposed the<br />

idea to Kahura after reading<br />

a book by ultra-runner Ned<br />

Brockmann.<br />

“I was not an ultra-runner<br />

by any means, but I wanted to<br />

do something to make other<br />

FINISHED: Daniel Tennent, right, and Daniel Kahura, back left, meet Kylie Kahura and her<br />

children PepaMo’ale, Eli Mo’ale, and Faith Mo’ale at the finish line of the final stint.<br />

people’s lives better,” he said.<br />

Supported by family, friends,<br />

and the wider community, the<br />

pair trained for eight weeks<br />

before their first run on April 1.<br />

In the two months that<br />

followed, the high-school friends<br />

raised $22,000 through private<br />

donations and their Givealittle<br />

page.<br />

Kahura, 30, said he was<br />

thankful for the support and<br />

generosity of the community.<br />

“I feel super blessed for the<br />

people who have shown their<br />

love and donated to help support<br />

my family.”<br />

But going into the running<br />

challenge, the pair were not<br />

without their doubts.<br />

“I knew doing them back-toback<br />

was going to be tough,”<br />

said Kahura, who feared<br />

he would fail the challenge<br />

after he experienced serious<br />

achilles tendon and lower back<br />

problems.<br />

Tennent, who gave up many<br />

hours of sleep and time with<br />

family, even experienced a<br />

severe case of rhabdo one week<br />

after finishing the last run.<br />

Rhabdo is when muscle<br />

breaks down, releasing contents<br />

into the bloodstream that can be<br />

life threatening if left untreated.<br />

“We made sacrifices and went<br />

through hard times to help<br />

someone who’s going through<br />

harder times than us,” said<br />

Tennent.<br />

He has now recovered.<br />

Craig Watson, head of<br />

supportive care for the Cancer<br />

Society Canterbury West Coast<br />

and Otago Southland, said the<br />

financial burden on families<br />

after diagnosis is significant.<br />

“I know of people refusing<br />

treatment because they have had<br />

to choose between travelling to<br />

treatment, or putting food on<br />

the table for their families,” said<br />

Watson.<br />

He said community support<br />

was vital to get families through<br />

a diagnosis.<br />

Kahura and Tennent said<br />

they were thankful they had<br />

experienced the of power of<br />

people.<br />

“It’s important to celebrate the<br />

small wins,” said Kahura.<br />

Celebrating Thirty Years of Community Service<br />

<strong>20</strong>24 is a special year for Christchurch South<br />

Community Patrol. It marks thirty years of<br />

working with the police and members of the<br />

community to make Christchurch a safer place.<br />

The patrol’s vehicle with its distinctive livery<br />

and number plate can be seen at Z Addingtonwhen<br />

it is not on patrol.<br />

Christchurch South is one of eight community<br />

patrols in the Christchurch metro area, and<br />

is part of a nationwide organization called<br />

CPNZ which ensures that all patrols and their<br />

patrollers are trained and operate in a safe way.<br />

The patrol is out and about monitoring the city<br />

streets and carparks day and night six days a<br />

week.<br />

Each patrol is planned. Patrollers use<br />

information from the community and from<br />

the police to plan their route. Their key task<br />

is to observe, record and report- to be the<br />

additional eyes and ears for the police,<br />

noting the little things that may form part of a<br />

larger picture. The patrol provides additional<br />

security in surrounding areas when major<br />

events are held at locations such as Apollo<br />

Projects Stadium, the A & P Showgrounds<br />

and Hagley Park. Christchurch South is also<br />

trained and equipped to respond to personal<br />

and community emergencies. In the past six<br />

months, patrollers have assisted at the scenes<br />

of traffic accidents, crime scenes and fires.<br />

During the Port Hills fire in March, the patrol<br />

helped the police man the cordons controlling<br />

access to the affected area.<br />

Community Patrols have an expanding<br />

relationship with the police, a relationship<br />

that is growing in importance as the police<br />

seek to significantly increase their numbers.<br />

Police recruits are encouraged to join a patrol<br />

while under-going their selection and pretraining<br />

process. Currently Christchurch South<br />

has three police recruits as part of its team.<br />

Patrolling gives the police of the future the<br />

opportunity to practice some of the basic skills<br />

they will need when fully fledged members of<br />

the Force.<br />

During National Volunteer Week, Christchurch<br />

South will have a display at Barrington Mall<br />

between 10.00am and 3.00pm on Friday 21<br />

and Saturday 22 <strong>June</strong>. Call by and see what<br />

we do. If you are interested in joining the patrol<br />

or supporting it in any way, contact Ken on 027<br />

CPNZ.org.nz. If you want to see more about<br />

what we do, check out our Facebook page.<br />

Mental health mission for Tama the Tui<br />

• By Emily O’Hagan<br />

THE AUTHOR behind a new<br />

children’s book, Tama the Tui has<br />

been down for a while hopes it will<br />

encourage children to open up<br />

when they feel “sad and blue”.<br />

The book, written by Alvante<br />

Harris and illustrated by Maria<br />

Carroll, follows the journey of<br />

Tama the young tui who is feeling<br />

down but learns to share his<br />

feelings with friends and family.<br />

Harris shared his book with<br />

pupils from Our Lady of the<br />

Assumption School in Hoon Hay.<br />

Harris hopes it will encourage<br />

children to share their feelings.<br />

“Not only will it give them the<br />

tools to open up, but it might even<br />

give them the tools to be able to<br />

support people when they need to.<br />

“So, if a friend does open up to<br />

them that they’re not feeling so<br />

good, they’ll have the tools they<br />

need to actually be able to help<br />

them and support them through<br />

that,” he said.<br />

It is the first book Harris has<br />

written after completing his first<br />

draft in <strong>20</strong>22.<br />

He admits mental health is<br />

a difficult topic to discuss in<br />

New Zealand, but believes it is<br />

important for kids to learn about.<br />

“One thing that’s been common<br />

throughout my life, throughout<br />

my friends and family, is people<br />

aren’t very good at opening up<br />

and talking about their feelings,”<br />

Harris said.<br />

“So I figured that if you write a<br />

has been down for a while with pupils from Our Lady of<br />

the Assumption School who had plenty of questions for<br />

PHOTOS: EMILY O’HAGAN<br />

book for kids, then they can learn<br />

early and get the tools they need<br />

to be able to open up when they<br />

need to.”<br />

And the idea seems to be working.<br />

He received positive responses<br />

from pupils who clearly<br />

understood its meaning.<br />

“Always tell someone when<br />

you’re sad so then they know.<br />

“I liked that Tama was sad and<br />

then his dad said to talk about his<br />

feelings and then he felt a lot more<br />

better,” one pupil said.<br />

Harris has also started an<br />

initiative to help spread his<br />

important message. For every<br />

four books he sells, he’ll donate<br />

another to an organisation,<br />

school, or mental health worker<br />

who could benefit from it.<br />

He has ideas for future stories<br />

Mid-winter plunge all for a good cause<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

A DARING group jumped into<br />

the wintry water of Governors<br />

Bay to help pay for its jetty<br />

restoration.<br />

Sunday’s relatively warm<br />

weather was encouraging for the<br />

45 jumpers who raised $<strong>20</strong>77<br />

for the cause.<br />

Jetty Trust secretary Louisa<br />

Eades is pleased the mid-winter<br />

jetty jump and swim met its<br />

funding goal.<br />

“There was a lot of whooping<br />

and excitement when people got<br />

out of the water. It feels really<br />

good to get in the water and get<br />

out again,” she said.<br />

Some participants showed<br />

their enthusiasm by jumping in<br />

multiple times.<br />

“We were really lucky with the<br />

weather. The sun came out and<br />

it was actually a really beautiful<br />

day,” Eades said.<br />

Members from the Canterbury<br />

Open Water Swimming<br />

Association also swam to the<br />

buoy in the bay after their jump.<br />

Eades and Jetty Trust chair<br />

Prue Miller also had a go,<br />

jumping off the jetty dressed as<br />

Superwoman.<br />

“It was actually nowhere near<br />

as bad as I thought,” said Eades.<br />

After the jump, participants<br />

were treated to a well-earned<br />

sausage sizzle with hot drinks<br />

while they dried off.<br />

The jetty trust has $465,000<br />

left to pay on its loan from the<br />

city council, which helped fund<br />

the rebuild.<br />

If the city council includes<br />

funding for the jetty in its final<br />

Long Term Plan, the loan will<br />

decrease to $240,000.<br />

• Donations can be<br />

made to support the jetty<br />

rebuild until <strong>June</strong> 30 at<br />

TEAMWORK: Louisa<br />

Eades and Prue Miller<br />

were among the 45 jetty<br />

jumpers.<br />

Sorry we’re in your way<br />

Expect delays at the<br />

Dyers Pass/Colombo roundabout<br />

We’re making the roundabout way safer for<br />

everyone. Improvements will include pedestrian<br />

crossings, new road markings and safe speed<br />

platforms.<br />

In addition to these safety improvements, we’re currently<br />

making critical and unforeseen repairs to wastewater pipes.<br />

Work will be completed by late July.<br />

We know road works are disruptive for you. We’ll work hard to<br />

minimise disruption and keep traffic flowing.<br />

Red zone work a fun escape from class<br />

NURTURING nature in the red<br />

zone is where you’ll find George<br />

and Emma each week.<br />

Rain or shine, the pair spend<br />

their Friday mornings mulching,<br />

uncovering hidden plants<br />

and picking up rubbish in the<br />

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor.<br />

George and Emma belong to<br />

Riccarton High’s Kohanga Ako<br />

class, which is purpose built for<br />

students with special education<br />

needs.<br />

As part of the class’s work<br />

experience programme, the<br />

students collaborate with<br />

the city council parks team,<br />

volunteering their time and<br />

contributing to the red zone<br />

regeneration.<br />

Twenty-year-old George,<br />

who started volunteering due<br />

to his passion for the outdoors,<br />

has an eagle eye for spotting<br />

small pieces of rubbish to be<br />

collected or plants in need of<br />

releasing.<br />

“It’s cool to get away from<br />

the classroom and spend time<br />

outside,” George said.<br />

“I like using the parks tools to<br />

pick up rubbish, it makes it a lot<br />

easier to keep the place clean.”<br />

Eighteen-year-old Emma, on<br />

A DESERTED residential<br />

playground has been brought<br />

back to life as a sensory nature<br />

play park.<br />

Te Kohanga Taiao Sensory<br />

Nature Play Park opened last<br />

weekend on Brooker Ave in the<br />

red zone after two businesses –<br />

Hummingbird Coffee and The<br />

Green Lab – teamed up to work<br />

with the city council on the<br />

project.<br />

Nestled within restoration<br />

plantings thanks to the efforts<br />

of Avon-Ōtākaro Forest Park<br />

Trust, the new park aims to<br />

serve as an educational hub and<br />

a nature haven to encourage<br />

a deeper connection with the<br />

environment.<br />

Its design encourages children<br />

to discover nature by feeling<br />

the other hand, has developed a<br />

keen love for the environment<br />

and after months of practice has<br />

mastered the art of mulching.<br />

“I search for treasure when<br />

I’m looking around too, but so<br />

New sensory park a<br />

space to inspire play<br />

different textures of leaves and<br />

wood, to smell a variety of native<br />

plant aromas, and listen for the<br />

variety in natural sounds like<br />

tapping on wood and rustling<br />

leaves.<br />

“This kind of opportunity<br />

to invent play, to utilise<br />

found materials and discover<br />

interesting spaces to play<br />

are really important for our<br />

children’s sense of independence,<br />

creativity and confidence,” said<br />

city council play advocate Louise<br />

Van Tongeren.<br />

“The play spaces are<br />

deliberately set up to inspire<br />

children to head off and explore,<br />

without being overly prescriptive<br />

about what to actually do.”<br />

Children learn through all<br />

of their senses – for some that<br />

far have just come across old<br />

concrete,” Emma said.<br />

Learning on the job is all part<br />

of the experience, as the students<br />

develop skills and experience to<br />

help them into the work force.<br />

is running and climbing and<br />

others may learn better through<br />

sensory elements, Van Tongeren<br />

said.<br />

“When we provide spaces<br />

that allow for other kinds of<br />

exploration, including calmer<br />

play experiences, we are being<br />

much more inclusive of a wider<br />

range of needs within our<br />

community.”<br />

Last year, the pair brought<br />

the full Kohanga Ako class<br />

down to help with planting<br />

season, proudly showing their<br />

classmates around the area.<br />

City council community<br />

FREEDOM: Te Kohanga Taiao Sensory Nature Play Park has<br />

been set up to encourage children to explore the space<br />

without restrictions.<br />

Once a former residential area,<br />

the park is now home to multiple<br />

wētā ‘hotels’ and ‘apartments’<br />

made at workshops held at<br />

Phillipstown Community Hub.<br />

These are warm and dry spaces<br />

where ecologically important<br />

native wētā, bees and wasps can<br />

keep safe from predators like rats<br />

and birds.<br />

The park has been designed<br />

partnership ranger Sarah<br />

Mankelow says the work is<br />

a two-way street, providing<br />

valuable experience while<br />

regenerating the area.<br />

“It’s a huge help for us having<br />

these students work in the<br />

ŌARC, and after months on<br />

site they’re experienced enough<br />

that they can occasionally work<br />

unsupervised,” Mankelow said.<br />

“Maintenance is such an<br />

important part of red zone<br />

regeneration, and we’re<br />

grateful to have a helping hand<br />

while providing workplace<br />

experience.”<br />

Maintenance days are<br />

advertised on the city council’s<br />

website, and the council is<br />

always looking for volunteers to<br />

help.<br />

to significantly increase and<br />

encourage the biodiversity of the<br />

area.<br />

A recent ‘bioblitz’ held at the<br />

site as part of the City Nature<br />

Challenge uncovered more than<br />

100 different species of plants,<br />

insects, spiders and fish in just a<br />

few hours.<br />

Council community<br />

partnership and residential<br />

redzone ranger Sarah Mankelow<br />

says the Avon Ōtākaro River<br />

corridor will be a green spine<br />

that stretches from the city to<br />

the sea.<br />

“The opportunity to restore<br />

and protect the river that runs<br />

through the heart of our city and<br />

plan ahead for climate change is<br />

a once in a lifetime opportunity.<br />

“Created for community by<br />

community, it is a beautiful<br />

space for all ages and abilities to<br />

picnic, play and enjoy.”<br />

The Avon-Ōtākaro Forest<br />

Park Trust will take on the<br />

kaitiaki role of ongoing care and<br />

maintenance of the play space.<br />

Fresh flavours to keep out the cold<br />

A chill in the air calls for<br />

something warming,<br />

writes Nigel Slater<br />

Coppa, fig and gorgonzola<br />

tarts<br />

One of the ready-rolled frozen<br />

pastry sheets works perfectly<br />

here. If you don’t have coppa, use<br />

thin slices of pancetta, torn into<br />

stamp-sized pieces. The tarts are<br />

at their best when eaten straight<br />

from the oven, while the cheese is<br />

still soft and melting. A few salad<br />

leaves would be good on the side.<br />

Ingredients<br />

Makes 4 tarts<br />

3<strong>20</strong>g puff pastry<br />

4 figs<br />

250g mozzarella<br />

<strong>20</strong>0g gorgonzola<br />

4 heaped Tbsp creme fraiche<br />

2 Tbsp thyme leaves<br />

80g coppa<br />

a little beaten egg<br />

Method<br />

• Line a baking sheet with<br />

parchment. Preheat the oven to<br />

2<strong>20</strong>°C. Roll the pastry out to a<br />

rectangle roughly 36cm x 23cm.<br />

With the longest side towards<br />

you, cut down into 4 rectangles,<br />

measuring 9cm x 23cm. Place<br />

each one on the parchment-lined<br />

baking sheet. Using a sharp<br />

knife, score a second rectangle<br />

inside each one, leaving a 1.5cm<br />

rim around the edges, taking<br />

care not to cut through the<br />

pastry. Chill in the fridge for<br />

<strong>20</strong> minutes. (This prevents the<br />

pastry from shrinking in the<br />

oven.)<br />

• Cut each fig into 6 wedges.<br />

Tear the mozzarella and<br />

gorgonzola into small pieces and<br />

drop them into a bowl. Add the<br />

creme fraiche, the thyme leaves<br />

and a grinding or two of black<br />

pepper.<br />

• Bake the pastry in the<br />

preheated oven for 8 minutes<br />

until it is just starting to colour<br />

and crisp. Remove from the oven<br />

and, using the back of a teaspoon,<br />

push the inner rectangle of<br />

pastry down to form a hollow.<br />

• Spoon the filling into the<br />

hollows, tucking pieces of coppa<br />

and slices of fig into the filling.<br />

Brush the pastry rim of the tarts<br />

with a little of the beaten egg,<br />

taking care not to let it run down<br />

the sides of the pastry.<br />

• Return the tarts to the oven<br />

and bake them for a further<br />

10-15 minutes, until the pastry<br />

is crisp and golden. Eat straight<br />

away, while they are still warm.<br />

French beans and cabbage<br />

Lovely lemony, mustard and basil<br />

notes going on here. This would<br />

be good with the tarts above,<br />

but would also work as a main<br />

course salad, especially if you<br />

introduce some smoked mackerel<br />

or mussels, steamed and pulled<br />

from their shells.<br />

I like to use one of the pointed<br />

spring cabbages, though a crisp<br />

round white cabbage is also<br />

fine. I leave the darker, crinklyleaved<br />

Savoy types for the winter<br />

months. This is a salad I like<br />

to serve just warm rather than<br />

chilled, when the flavours are<br />

at their fullest. The beans need<br />

their stems removing, but not<br />

the tender, curving points that<br />

make these late-season beans so<br />

elegant.<br />

Ingredients<br />

Serves 4 as side dish<br />

250g French (haricot) beans<br />

450g cabbage<br />

50g hazelnuts<br />

2 Tbsp tarragon leaves<br />

10 medium-sized basil leaves<br />

Dressing<br />

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard<br />

2 Tbsp red wine vinegar<br />

1 Tbsp lemon juice<br />

1 tsp honey<br />

150ml olive oil<br />

Method<br />

• Make the dressing first. Put the<br />

mustard in a small bowl, then<br />

stir in the red wine vinegar and<br />

lemon juice, honey and a good<br />

pinch of sea salt, then beat in<br />

the olive oil, either with a fork or<br />

small whisk. Set aside.<br />

• In a dry, shallow pan, toast<br />

the hazelnuts over a low to<br />

moderate heat, moving them<br />

around the pan so they colour<br />

evenly. When they are toasted<br />

and fragrant, remove from the<br />

heat and roughly chop. Then<br />

chop the tarragon leaves and<br />

basil and stir together with the<br />

hazelnuts into the dressing.<br />

• Bring a deep pan of water<br />

to the boil and salt it lightly.<br />

Remove the stalk and (if you<br />

wish) the pointed tips of the<br />

beans. Drop the beans into the<br />

boiling water and let them cook<br />

for 3 or 4 minutes until they<br />

have darkened and will gently<br />

bend without snapping. Remove<br />

the beans from the water with a<br />

draining spoon and set aside. Let<br />

the water come back to the boil.<br />

• Shred the cabbage into fingerthick<br />

strips, removing the core<br />

as you go, wash under running<br />

water, then drop into boiling<br />

water. Leave to cook for 1 minute,<br />

then drain into a colander, shake<br />

dry and add to the beans. (Make<br />

sure to shake the cabbage well,<br />

so the dressing does not become<br />

diluted.)<br />

• Toss the beans and cabbage<br />

with the dressing and pile<br />

generously on to a serving dish.<br />
