A starter from North Africa, a hearty stew from Spain and a dessert cake with some of the best flavours of France merge brilliantly in a United Nations sort of way in this wonderful menu for 4. And the good news is that it can all be prepared ahead, or easily doubled if you want to feed 8.
All this recipe itself involves is some initial chopping, followed by an extremely quick assembly job. Then the whole lot is popped into the oven out of sight and out of mind for 1½ hours.
This is a cake that borders on being a dessert, and would be my choice for a celebration supper party, served warm with crème fraîche. If you are not a lover of Armagnac, the prunes also taste good served with port or amaretto liqueur.
