AA Gill's final column for Gourmet Traveller

We mourn the loss of a treasured member of the Gourmet Traveller family who passed awayon December 10, 2016. British writer AA Gill was a contributor to the magazine from July 2004. Gill’s travel column was as insightful as it was witty, funny as it was thoughtful – he was without peer. This is the final piece he wrote for Gourmet Traveller; it appears in the December issue, 2016. - Anthea Loucas Bosha, Editor

Coconut crab and green mango salad

"This salad bursts with fresh, vibrant flavours and became a signature on my Paramount menus," says Christine Manfield. "I capitalised on using green mangoes in many dishes as they became more widely available. Blue swimmer crabs from South Australia have the most delicious sweet meat. It's best to buy them whole, cook them yourself and carefully pick the meat from the shell - a tedious task but it gives the best flavour. This entree also works well with spanner crab meat (you can buy this in packs ready cooked from reliable fishmongers). The sweetness of the crab, the richness of the fresh coconut and the sourness of green mango make a wonderful partnership. It's all about harmony on the palate and using the very best produce."

Does gluten-free flour give the same result?

It's hard to substitute gluten-free flours for wheat flours in particular recipes like pasta or pastry dough and achieve the same result...
My girlfriend is wheat intolerant. Which is the best non-wheat flour to use for making fresh pasta and pastry?
By Rob Black
Lisa Featherby, Gourmet Traveller food editor, writes:
It's hard to substitute gluten-free flours for wheat flours in particular recipes like pasta or pastry dough and achieve the same result, so we don't recommend cooking recipes that are meant to have a gluten base with another product. However, if you still want to try and make pasta and pastry dough with substitute flours, there are flours such as soy, tapioca, maize, rice and gluten-free plain flour that can be used. It's important to note that these flours don't necessarily deliver the same result and can't be substituted equally to wheat flour. You may be in for a bit of trial and error if you're not following a recipe that uses a specific brand of gluten-free flour. Plus, with so many great pastry and savoury recipes that are gluten-free and with no flour used at all, you may find searching our website for flourless recipes also useful.
