Mangosteen • Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) is a tropical fruit with a slightly sweet and sour flavour. It originated in Southeast Asia but today is grown in tropical regions around the world. Australian-grown mangosteens are in season from November to March, with the peak of the season around February. The purple outer rind of mangosteen is inedible but is easy to remove and reveals bright-white inner flesh. This juicy flesh is relatively low in calories but high in fibre and can be eaten raw or added to fruit salads or smoothies.
Skoudekharis • Skoudekharis is the national dish of the East African nation of Djibouti. It is made of rice, lamb and Ayurvedic spices, especially cardamom. Lamb can be substituted for chicken, beef or fish, although this dish is commonly served alongside grilled chicken and is invariably partnered with brightly dyed rice and a buttery sauce called "niter kibbeh”, made from clarified butter infused with herbs and spices. Frequently, skoudekharis is also served on top of laxoox (pronounced "lahooh”), a nutritious flatbread made from teff flour and sweetened water.

Limonana • Limonana is the pavlova of the drink world and its country of origin is disputed. Some say this beverage originated in Turkey, while other sources attribute it to Syria. Whatever its origins, limonana is popular all around the Mediterranean and when you make it you will see why. The name is the giveaway, coming from the word “limon” (meaning lemon in both Arabic and Hebrew) and the Hebrew “nana” (meaning mint). The ingredients are simple: lemon, mint, water and a sweetener. To make limonana, just add your lemon, mint leaves and water to a blender and blend.
