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.

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.

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.

What is koji?

Yellow's snake beans and black rice

Yellow's snake beans and black rice

Koji has been used by Japanese cooks for centuries to make everything from soy sauce and sake to miso and mirin. It's a living food made from steamed rice treated with a mould called Aspergillus oryzae, and if you love umami it's about to become your favourite seasoning. In Sydney, at Momofuku Seiobo, koji butter brings out the sweet brininess of marron.

At Yellow it amps up snake beans and black rice. Tomoko Onuki, co-founder of Rice Culture, has been making organic dry koji and miso by hand in Nerang on Queensland's Gold Coast since 2012, supplying locals such as Halcyon House's Paper Daisy restaurant in Cabarita. This year Onuki and partner Yukiyo Copley began production of shio koji, a fermented sauce of koji, rice, salt and water that not only seasons but also draws out natural flavours and tenderises meat. "It has 30 per cent salt to koji, but it's so much healthier [than salt], and you use less because of the umami," says Onuki.
