Cook’s notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Place tomatoes and cucumber on a platter. Top with anchovy fillets, capers, caper leaves and shaved kefalotiri. Scatter with oregano and drizzle with olive oil, to serve.


• Caper leaves come packed in salt or brine and are available from Mediterranean delis. If unavailable, substitute extra capers.

• Kefalotiri and kefalograviera are available from delis and select supermarkets.

• Dried Greek oregano (rigani) is available from delis and select supermarkets.
