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."

Garlic recipes

This pungent yet essential little bulb sets the foundation for countless dishes across the globe. Slowly roast it alongside spatchcock or whole snapper, or grind it down to thick paste for a rich alioli. When it comes to garlic, the possibilities truly are endless.

Automata's pickled eggs and onions


"These pickled eggs are a cross between an Asian style (with the boiled eggs soaked in soy sauce) and a European pickled egg," says Clayton Wells. "They have added richness from the black garlic and from the herbs." Begin this recipe three days ahead to pickle the eggs and onion.

You'll need

6 eggs, at room temperature 3 white onions, sliced into 8mm-thick rounds, keeping the rings intact 1 head black garlic, sliced (see note) 6 thyme sprigs   Malt pickle 1 litre (4 cups) malt vinegar 250 ml (1 cup) tamari 1 head black garlic, halved (see note) 8 thyme sprigs

Method

  • 01
  • For malt pickle, combine ingredients, 15gm fine sea salt and 1 litre water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Cool to room temperature, then strain (discard garlic and thyme).
  • 02
  • Cover eggs with cold water in a saucepan, bring to the boil and cook for 2 minutes. Drain, refresh in a bowl of iced water, then carefully peel and place in a heatproof container. Bring half the pickling liquid to the boil, pour over eggs, cover and refrigerate for at least 3 days.
  • 03
  • Place onion slices in a single layer in a wide saucepan, add remaining pickling liquid, cover directly with a round of baking paper and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cool, then refrigerate in an airtight container for at least 3 days.
  • 04
  • To serve, drain pickled eggs, halve and arrange on serving plates with pickled onion, and top with black garlic and thyme.

Note Black garlic is fermented garlic, usually sold in whole heads, is available from select delicatessens and online at tasmanianblackgarlic.com.au
