Preheat the oven to 200C (400F / Gas Mark 6). Brush two of the sheets of filo generously with the melted butter and top each one with another sheet. Cut each one into rectangles and dust with the icing sugar. Arrange on a non-stick baking sheet and bake in the oven for 8 minutes until golden brown. Leave aside to cool.
To make the lemon crème pâtissière, bring the lemon zest, juice and sugar to the boil in a small pan and mix the butter in until melted and smooth. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs in a large bowl to combine and slowly add the lemon mixture, whisking all the time. Return the mixture to the pan and cook gently over a low heat, stirring continuously, until smooth and thick. Cover the surface with cling film and leave to cool. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Next, cut about a quarter of the strawberries into quarters and place in a medium pan with the icing sugar. Cook gently over a low heat until softened. Add the remaining strawberries and the red currants also and continue to cook until warmed through but the additional fruit retains their shape. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
Meanwhile, make the coulis. Bring the sugar and water to the boil in a small pan, stirring throughout. Reduce to simmer for 2 minutes and then leave to cool completely. Blitz the cooled syrup in a blender with the strawberries and lemon juice until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve and reserve.
Build each Mille feuillé into layers on each serving plate. Start with a piece of crisp filo. Fill a piping bag set with a nozzle with the crème patisserie and pipe onto the filo. Spoon some of the cooked fruit mixture on top and place another filo piece on top. Repeat with another layer of everything, finishing with the pastry again. Drizzle the coulis around and serve.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
