Sydney's best dishes 2016

For our 50th anniversary issue in 2016, we scoured Australia asking two questions: What dishes are making waves right now? What flavours will take us into the next half-century? Sydney provided 16 answers.

Mango recipes

Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

Paul Carmichael's great cake

"Great cake, also known in Barbados as black cake or rum cake, is a variation of British Christmas cake that's smashed with rum and falernum syrup," says Momofuku Seiobo chef Paul Carmichael. "This festive cake varies from household to household but they all have two things in common: tons of dried fruit and rum. It's a cake that should be started at least a month out so the fruit can marinate in the booze. Start this recipe up to five weeks ahead to macerate the fruit and baste the cake."

Summer feta recipes

Whether in a fresh salad or seasonal seafood dish, feta's creamy tang can be used to add interest to a variety of summer dishes.

GT reader dinner: River Café at Rosetta, Melbourne

Join us for a very special reader dinner with The River Café's co-founder Ruth Rogers who's headlining the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival - it's the hottest ticket in town.

There's no underestimating the influence of London's The River Café and how it changed the city's dining scene. Aside from the high-profile alumni it spawned (River Cottage chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and television favourite Jamie Oliver), the River Café introduced a sunny new approach to Italian food the city hadn't experienced before. Its co-founder Ruth Rogers is headed to Melbourne so we too can get a taste of her bright flavours.

Rogers is one of the headline acts at this year's Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, and we're thrilled to announce that Gourmet Traveller will be hosting an exclusive reader dinner with her as part of the event. The glamorous Rosetta Ristorante will provide the setting and owner Neil Perry will drop by to help behind the scenes.

"The River Café is one of my favourite restaurants in the world and I always visit Ruth when I'm in London," Perry says. "Ruth has always inspired me with her style, the way she cooks and her dedication to superb seasonal produce."

Together, they'll be cooking a spread of dishes inspired by The River Café's signature style. We can barely wait and Rogers can't either. "It's always so stimulating to come to Melbourne and experience its amazing food culture," she says. "I am especially excited to be working with Neil Perry and his exceptional team at Rosetta."

Join us on Tuesday, 10 March, for an evening of fabulous Italian-accented food and hospitality in celebration of one of London's most influential cooks. Get in quick because this is one reader dinner you won't want to miss.

Join us for dinner at 7pm on Tuesday, 10 March, at Rosetta, 8 Whiteman St, Southbank, Melbourne, VIC. The cost is $200. For details and to book please visit the MFWF website.
