Since Covid-19 has made it challenging to travel, we love to invite our readers to enjoy Travel Tuesday virtually. In celebration of Zero Waste Week last week (7-11 September), we're bringing some zesty inspiration from the kitchens at Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay in Bali. Following months of perfecting their baking skills, there's always room for a new and inspired pie filling.
Get Your (No Waste) Filling From Four Seasons Bali
This recipe brings a tangy, lime taste to traditional lemon meringue. The filling uses calamansi - a popular citrus fruit in Indonesia - but if you can't find them, use key lime juice instead. Expect zero waste during creation (and consumption). In the resort, the juice, flesh and skin of local limes are used for marmalade and curd - even the eggshells go to the garden compost.

Calamansi / Lime Curd Pie Filling:
Calamansi (or lime juice) - 40ml
Eggs - 4
Sugar - 110g
White chocolate, finely chopped - 180g
Regular lime juice - 60ml
Whisk together the calamansi (or lime) juice, regular lime juice, sugar and whole eggs
Whilst constantly stirring, slowly bring this mixture to boil in a small saucepan. Continuously scrape the bottom of the pan to ensure the mixture does not stick or scramble
Once boiling, continue to cook and stir for an additional minute
Pour mixture onto the chopped white chocolate in a heat-proof bowl. Stir to melt the chocolate and combine well
Pass the mixture through a sieve into a pre-baked tart shell, cool in the fridge to allow the curd to set
