Preparation time
2 hours
Cooking time
4-6 servings


Sous-vide pineapple

1 whole pineapple
300g caster sugar
250ml water
50g glucose
2 star anise
Cracked black pepper
Salt flakes

Coconut whip

1 x 400ml full fat coconut cream
20ml dark rum

Salt roasted pistachio

100g pistachio, crushed
1 teaspoon sea salt flakes


Sous-vide pineapple

1. Peel pineapple, cut in half lengthways, and remove the core. Slice pineapple into 1cm thick slices.
2. Place sugar, glucose, and half of the water into a saucepan and simmer over high heat, Induction setting 8 until a brown caramel is formed.
3. Remove from the heat and then very slowly, add the rest of the water to the caramel, stirring well. This will result in a caramel syrup.
4. Place pineapple into a large vacuum sealing bag and pour the cooled caramel syrup into the bag.
5. Add the star anise and some cracked black pepper and a pinch of salt to the bag.
6. Place bag into the refrigerator to cool down completely before vacuum sealing. Place into the Vacuum Sealing Drawer and vacuum on setting 3 and seal on setting 3.
7. Place the sealed bag on a wire rack in the Steam Oven and sous-vide at 65°C for one hour.
8. Remove pineapple from the bag, reserving the liquid.
9. Place the liquid into a small saucepan and simmer on high heat, Induction setting 7 until the liquid has the consistency of honey.

Coconut Whip

1. Refrigerate the can of coconut cream overnight.
2. Place metal mixing bowl and whisk in the refrigerator to cool, before making whipped cream.
3. Open the can of coconut cream, taking care not to shake it. Scoop the coconut cream solids into the cold mixing bowl and add the rum.
4. Beat the coconut cream using electric mixer on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Salt roasted pistachio

1. Pre-heat oven on Fan Plus at 180°C.
2. Place pistachios on a baking tray and sprinkle with salt flakes.
3. Place into the oven on shelf position 2 for 7-9 minutes. Pistachios should be fragrant and a little golden.
4. Place nuts into a blender and pulse to grind nuts, leaving quite chunky.

To serve

1. Place 3 pieces of pineapple in the middle of a serving bowl and spoon over warm syrup.
2. Spoon a dollop of coconut whip onto the pineapple and sprinkle with the salt roasted pistachios.
