AA Gill's final column for Gourmet Traveller

We mourn the loss of a treasured member of the Gourmet Traveller family who passed awayon December 10, 2016. British writer AA Gill was a contributor to the magazine from July 2004. Gill’s travel column was as insightful as it was witty, funny as it was thoughtful – he was without peer. This is the final piece he wrote for Gourmet Traveller; it appears in the December issue, 2016. - Anthea Loucas Bosha, Editor

Coconut crab and green mango salad

"This salad bursts with fresh, vibrant flavours and became a signature on my Paramount menus," says Christine Manfield. "I capitalised on using green mangoes in many dishes as they became more widely available. Blue swimmer crabs from South Australia have the most delicious sweet meat. It's best to buy them whole, cook them yourself and carefully pick the meat from the shell - a tedious task but it gives the best flavour. This entree also works well with spanner crab meat (you can buy this in packs ready cooked from reliable fishmongers). The sweetness of the crab, the richness of the fresh coconut and the sourness of green mango make a wonderful partnership. It's all about harmony on the palate and using the very best produce."

Chocolate moelleux


"I would love to surprise my girlfriend by making the chocolate moelleux from Must Winebar. No matter how full she is, she can't say no to this dessert."
Damien Saxby, Osborne Park, WA

You'll need

185 gm dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids; see note), coarsely chopped 185 gm butter, coarsely chopped 4 eggs 4 egg yolks 90 gm caster sugar 150 gm (1 cup) plain flour 25 gm Dutch-process cocoa powder, plus extra for dusting   White chocolate ice-cream 500 ml (2 cups) milk 3 tsp liquid glucose 6 egg yolks 100 gm caster sugar 250 gm white chocolate, coarsely chopped 100 ml vegetable oil 500 ml (2 cups) pouring cream

Method

  • 01
  • For white chocolate ice-cream, bring milk and liquid glucose to just below the boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk yolks and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale (2-3 minutes). While whisking, add milk mixture in a thin steady stream, then return to pan and stir continuously over medium heat until mixture thickly coats a spoon (6-8 minutes). Melt chocolate in a bowl placed over a saucepan of barely simmering water and stir occasionally until smooth. Add oil in a thin steady stream, stirring to combine, then add to custard. Add cream, strain through a fine sieve and refrigerate until cold. Churn in an ice-cream machine, then freeze until required. Makes 1 litre.
  • 02
  • Melt chocolate and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (3-4 minutes), then stir gently until smooth. Whisk eggs, yolks and sugar in an electric mixer until pale and fluffy (2-3 minutes). Fold chocolate into egg mixture, sieve flour and cocoa in and fold to combine. Spoon into 8 buttered and floured 200ml ramekins or dariole moulds, filling to three-quarters, smooth tops and refrigerate to set (2 hours).
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Bake moelleux until just set and soft in the centre (8-10 minutes; a skewer should come out wet). Turn out of moulds, dust with extra cocoa and serve hot with white chocolate ice-cream.

Note Must's team uses Valrhona Guanaja and Valhrona cocoa; they're available from select delicatessens and grocers.
