If you go to Tasmania you can’t escape the similar feel to England’s West Country because of its lovely cream, cheese, raspberries and the famous sea trout farming industry. And it is a West Country type of place. So here is an appropriate recipe for you to try out.


  • 10 pieces of thin-cut white sliced bread
  • 75 g (3 oz) butter, melted


Cut the bread into squares, trim off the crusts and go and feed the birds. When you’re back, flatten the slices of bread with a rolling pin, then brush the bread squares with melted butter and lightly press into deep tartlet tins. Do not trim. Bake in a preheated oven, 190°C/375°F (gas mark 5), for about 10 mi
