“THIS DISH HITS the taste­buds with olives and feta, bal­anced by sweet toma­toes and del­i­cate touches such as fen­nel seeds, dill and lemon,” ex­plains chef Liz Egan. For ex­tra flavour and depth, she used Ard­mona Rich & Thick Clas­sic – a per­fect com­bi­na­tion of vine-ripened, Goul­burn Val­ley-grown toma­toes and tomato paste.
