A gorgeously summery salad, this is perfect for al fresco entertaining. If your broad beans are small – no bigger than your thumbnail – then it may not be necessary to peel them after cooking. If you prefer you could use a harder cheese, such as feta or pecorino, instead of the soft goat’s. Demonstrated at the 2011 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.
First make the dressing by mixing together all the ingredients and seasoning with salt and pepper.
Place a frying pan on a high heat, then once the pan is good and hot, pour in the olive oil, add the pancetta or bacon and fry until crispy and golden. Drain on kitchen paper and set aside.
Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add the beans and boil for ½–1 minute or until they are just cooked, then drain. If the beans are quite big, peel them at this stage (they’ll pop out of their skins easily); this isn’t essential but I think it’s well worth it as the skins can be tough.
Dress the beans while they are still warm, then leave to macerate for 15–20 minutes. Finally, add the cooked pancetta and the mint to the beans, crumble the cheese over the top 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.
