Top 10 Sydney Restaurants 2014

Looking for the best restaurants in Sydney? Here are the top ten Sydney restaurants from our 2014 Australian Restaurant Guide.

Jamaican goat curry

"Goat is the world's most consumed meat and we hardly give it a look in Australia. I adore it in so many different preparations, from South-East Asian dishes through to Italian braises, but my favourite is Jamaican curry with its heady spices," says Evans. "I see spices as nature's medicine cabinet and use them in as much of my cooking as possible. If you can't get your hands on quality goat meat (farmers' markets are a good bet or online), then feel free to substitute lamb or another protein. But if you've never had goat before, I urge you to give it a whirl."

Looking for the best restaurants in Melbourne? Here's our top ten from our 2014 Australian Restaurant Guide.

Kung Pao chicken

"I'm a longtime GT subscriber and fan. My fiance is obsessed with the Kung Pao chicken from Mr Wong in Sydney. He keeps trying to replicate it every time he goes near the kitchen. The results haven't been too bad, but he isn't happy with them, which means further experimentation. Would you please ask for the recipe so we can move on to something else?" Jules Clancy, Cooma, NSW REQUEST A RECIPE To request a recipe, write to Fare Exchange, Australian Gourmet Traveller, GPO Box 4088, Sydney, NSW 2001, or email fareexchange@bauer-media.com.au. Please include the restaurant's name and address or business card, as well as your name and address.

Guy Grossi: Baccalà alla Livornese


You'll need

1 baccalà fillet (500gm), skin and bones removed (see note) 125 ml (½ cup) olive oil For dusting: plain flour 2 large onions, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 4 anchovy fillets 1 tbsp capers in vinegar, rinsed 1 small red chilli, finely chopped 3 fresh bay leaves 1 tsp basil pesto 250 gm tomato paste 500 ml white wine ½ cup torn flat-leaf parsley, to serve To serve: crusty bread and salad

Method

  • 01
  • Place baccalà in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Refrigerate to remove salt (2-3 days), changing the water three or four times. Drain, then cut into 50gm pieces and set aside.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Heat half the oil in a flameproof roasting pan over high heat. Dust baccalà with flour and fry, turning once, until golden (2-3 minutes). Set aside in pan.
  • 03
  • Heat remaining oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until translucent (7-10 minutes). Add anchovies, capers, chilli, bay leaves and pesto, stir to combine, then add tomato paste and stir until paste darkens (8-10 minutes). Add wine, reduce slightly (5 minutes) and pour over baccalà. Add enough water to cover completely (about 500ml), season to taste. Bake until reduced to a thick sauce (20-25 minutes), scatter with parsley and serve with crusty bread and salad.
Note Baccalà, or salt cod, is available from Italian delicatessens and select fishmongers.

This recipe is from the March 2011 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“My mother would often cook this flavour-packed dish at Easter time. It should definitely have some saltiness to it and be quite robust, but not unpleasantly so. You can’t speed up the process of soaking the fish, but it's worth the wait.” You’ll need to begin this recipe 2-3 days ahead.
