Handy Tips
Tips and tricks: You can add almost any flavours to your lavosh, thyme, fennel, poppy seeds the list goes on.


  1. For the lavosh, preheat oven to 180 degrees. Combine the flour, sugar, salt and water in a food processor and combine until the dough comes together, if you need more water add a little at a time.
  2. Divide the dough into 8 portions and roll out until about 1mm thick. You want them really thin so they crisp up nicely.
  3. Use a sharp knife to cut into long rectangles, about 10 cm x 3cm.
  4. Lay each piece of dough onto a lined baking tray, brush with butter, then egg whites and sprinkle over salt, sesame and rosemary.
  5. Bake for 15 mins until golden brown and crispy.
  6. To make the quince paste, grease ramekins with a flavourless oil and line with baking paper
  7. Place quinces in a large pot and pour in water until just covered
  8. Bring to the boil and boil for about 45 mins
  9. Pour mixture into slow cooker and add remaining ingredients
  10. Cook with lid off on high for about 4 hours until the paste is a little thicker than jam
  11. Pour into ramekins and set in the fridge for about 30 mins
