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."

Shark Bay Wild Scampi Caviar

Bright blue scampi roe is popping up on menus across Australia. Here's why it's so special.

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.

Grilled wagyu rump cap


"The wagyu can be replaced with a good cut of Angus beef," says Pete Gilmore. "The important thing is to use a large piece of beef so you can carve it at the table."

You'll need

1 wagyu rump cap or well-marbled Black Angus rump cap (1.6kg; see note), removed from fridge 40 minutes before cooking Grapeseed or olive oil, for brushing 150 ml veal glaze (see note), warmed

Method

  • 01
  • Heat a charcoal barbecue with a lid until very hot coals form (15-30 minutes). If using a barbecue without a lid, also preheat oven to 180C. Brush beef with oil and season to taste, then grill, turning regularly, until browned (1-2 minutes each side). Transfer beef to a wire rack in a roasting pan and place away from the coals to cook indirectly, close the lid and bring the barbecue to 180C, or place in oven and roast, turning once halfway through, until cooked to your liking (40 minutes to 1 hour for medium-rare, with an internal temperature of 55C). Loosely cover beef with foil and rest for 15-20 minutes. Carve beef, brush with warmed veal glaze and serve.

Additional Notes

You’ll need to order wagyu or Black Angus rump cap ahead from a butcher. If you can’t source this cut, use another large roasting beef joint such as rib-eye. Veal glaze is available from specialty butcher shops.
