Most popular recipes summer 2017

Counting down from 20, here are this summer's most-loved recipes.

Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

Australia's best rieslings

Bali's new wave of restaurants, hotels and bars

The restaurant and hotel scene on Australia's favourite holiday island has never been more exciting and Australian chefs, owners and restaurateurs are leading the charge, writes Samantha Coomber.

Christine Manfield recipes

As the '90s dawned, darling chefs were pushing the boundaries of cooking in this country. A young Christine Manfield, just starting out at this heady time, soon became part of the generation that redefined modern Australian cuisine. She shares some of her timeless signatures from the era.

Curtis Stone's strawberry and almond cheesecake

"I've made all kinds of fancy cheesecakes in my time, but nothing really beats the classic combination of strawberries and almonds with a boost from vanilla bean," says Stone. "I could just pile macerated strawberries on top, but why not give your tastebuds a proper party by folding grilled strawberries into the cheesecake batter too? Cheesecakes are elegant and my go-to for celebrations because they taste best when whipped up a day in advance."

Fried chicken wings with coleslaw milk


You'll need

50 gm each fine sea salt and caster sugar 1 kg free-range chicken wings, cut into drumettes and tips For deep-frying: vegetable oil 200 ml light soy sauce For dusting: cornflour To serve: hot sauce such as sriracha (see note)   Coleslaw milk ½ Savoy cabbage, shredded on a mandolin 2 carrots, shredded on a mandolin 1 onion, thinly sliced on a mandolin 500 gm good-quality mayonnaise 60 ml (¼ cup) lemon juice 4 gm agar-agar (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Bring salt, sugar and 1 litre water to the boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, set aside to cool completely. Place chicken wings in a non-reactive container, pour over brine, cover and refrigerate to brine (2-3 hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for coleslaw milk, combine cabbage, carrot, onion, mayonnaise and lemon juice in a bowl, season to taste, toss to combine, cover, set aside to marinate (1-2 hours). Squeeze coleslaw to yield 400ml liquid, discard solids and remaining liquid. Combine agar-agar and coleslaw liquid in a small saucepan, blend with a hand-held blender, then, whisking continuously, bring to the boil over medium heat. Remove from heat, pour into a 15cm x 20cm tray, refrigerate until set (1 hour). Transfer to a blender, blend until a smooth gel forms, refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep saucepan or deep-fryer to 160C. Drain wings, pat dry with absorbent paper, toss in soy sauce and set aside to marinate (5 minutes). Pat dry with absorbent paper, dust in cornflour then deep-fry in batches, turning occasionally, until golden (3-4 minutes; be careful as hot oil will spit). Drain and set aside on a wire rack until dry (30-40 minutes).
  • 04
  • Heat oil to 190C. Deep-fry wings in batches until golden and crisp (1-2 minutes), season to taste and serve hot with coleslaw milk and hot sauce.
Note Sriracha hot sauce is available from Asian grocers. If unavailable, substitute another hot sauce. Agar-agar, a setting agent derived from seaweed, is available from health-food shops.

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

“Please publish the recipe for the amazing fried chicken wings with coleslaw milk from the boys at Sydney’s Duke Bistro.”
