Noma Australia: the first review

Curious about the hype surrounding Noma Australia? Pat Nourse heads to lunch and delivers the first verdict...

Lebanese-style snapper

"This dish is Lebanese-peasant done fancy with all the peasant-style flavours you'll find in Lebanese cooking, but with a beautiful piece of fish added," says Bacash. "The trick to not overcooking fish is to be aware that it cooks from the outside inwards and the centre should only cook until it's warm, not hot. If it gets hot in the middle, it will become overcooked from the residual heat. It takes a little practise getting to know this - be conscious of the inside of the fish and not the outside. Until you get it right, you can always get a little paring knife and peek inside the flesh when you think it's ready; it won't damage it too much."

Gourmet Traveller Signature Collection tableware by Robert Gordon

We’ve teamed up with pottery house Robert Gordon to create a range of tableware – introducing the Gourmet Traveller Signature Collection.

Stir-fry recipes

A centrepiece of stir-fried lobster with garlic stems or Neil Perry’s stir-fried beef with Sichuan peppercorns and sweet bean sauce? Whichever you choose, our online collection of 22 wok-tossed recipes is bound to cause a stir.

Homemade white bread

"Not multigrain, not gluten-free, nor rye or whole wheat - classic white bread is the only acceptable canvas for your delicious passion project, the brisket," says Curtis Stone. "Texas barbecue sides are supposed to be minimalist, but minimalist done right. Baking soft, fluffy bread from scratch is doing it just right (and then some). Plus, stuffing brisket into a slice of bread means you can eat with your hands, the way it ought to be." Makes 2 loaves.

Prego rolls

"This is a Mozambican specialty and one of the foods that changed my life in terms of African cuisine," says Duncan Welgemoed. "The best spot to get a prego roll in South Africa is the Radium Beerhall. It's run by my godfather, Manny, and is the oldest pub in Jo'burg. The meats are grilled out the back by Mozambican staff and are still done the same way today as they were 30 years ago." Start this recipe a day ahead to marinate the beef.

Baby beetroot in cartoccio with ricotta and walnut salad


You'll need

2 baby fennel bulbs, trimmed, cut into 6 wedges 8 small red shallots 8 thyme sprigs 3 fresh bay leaves 1 rosemary sprig 50 ml olive oil 100 gm (1 cup) walnut pieces 100 ml extra-virgin olive oil 30 ml sherry vinegar 2 radicchio di Treviso, outer leaves discarded, inner leaves washed and dried 2 cups (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley (about 1 bunch) 200 gm ricotta   Baby beetroot in cartoccio 100 ml extra-virgin olive oil 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 2 lemons, finely grated rind and juice only ½ bunch lemon thyme, leaves picked To season: freshly ground white pepper 12 baby beetroot, trimmed and scrubbed

Method

  • 01
  • For baby beetroot in cartoccio, preheat oven to 160C. Place a 30cm-square piece of foil on a work surface, brush with 1 tsp olive oil, scatter with garlic, lemon rind and thyme leaves, season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground white pepper. Place beetroot on top, wrap to enclose and seal well, then place on a baking tray and bake until tender (50 minutes-1 hour). Remove from oven, open bag and drizzle with lemon juice and remaining olive oil, seal bag again and set aside.
  • 02
  • Increase oven to 180C. Place fennel and shallots on a baking tray, scatter with herbs and drizzle with 50ml olive oil, season to taste and roast until just tender (15-20 minutes), transfer vegetables and cooking juices to a bowl.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, scatter walnuts in a single layer on a baking tray and roast until lightly coloured and skins start to loosen (8-10 minutes). Place in a tea towel and rub walnuts with a tea towel to remove skins. Coarsely crumble and set aside.
  • 04
  • Combine remaining extra-virgin olive oil and sherry vinegar in a small bowl, season to taste and set aside.
  • 05
  • Coarsely tear radicchio, add to shallot mixture with beetroot mixture, walnuts and parsley. Drizzle with a little sherry vinaigrette, toss gently to combine and divide among plates. Crumble over ricotta, season to taste, serve immediately.

“This salad is perfect in autumn. I first had beetroot cooked this way at a little Moroccan restaurant on the island of Lipari (strange but true), and I love how the juices of the roasting all stay in the ‘bag’. I’ve served these beetroot with grilled snapper as well. The creaminess of the fresh ricotta and the walnuts complement the sweet lemon-infused roasted beetroots, which, along with the fennel, radicchio and roast shallots, produce the strong autumn flavours that I adore.”
