Top 10 Sydney Restaurants 2014

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."

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.

Roasted capsicum and tomato salad with cumin and sherry vinegar (Asadillo)


You'll need

5 red capsicums 1 large onion, unpeeled 1 head garlic 2 tbsp olive oil 4 tomatoes, peeled, seeds removed, cut into wedges 1 handful coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil 75 ml sherry vinegar 1 tbsp cumin seeds, roasted and ground

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Place capsicums, onion and garlic in a large roasting pan, scatter with sea salt and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 40 minutes or until brown and tender. Transfer capsicum and garlic to a bowl, reserving cooking juices, then return onion to oven and cook for another 30 minutes or until very soft.
  • 02
  • When capsicum is cool enough to handle, peel and remove seeds, discarding skins and seeds and reserving cooking juices. Tear capsicum into broad strips, using your fingers, and place in a separate bowl. Cut the top off the head of garlic and squeeze garlic into the bowl with the capsicum. Add tomato and stir to combine, letting the residual warmth from the capsicum soften the tomato just a little.
  • 03
  • When onion is cool enough to handle, remove skin and discard, then cut onion into wedges and stir through capsicum mixture.
  • 04
  • Measure out 100ml of reserved capsicum cooking juices and add to capsicum mixture with remaining ingredients, mix thoroughly and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately or refrigerate for 3-4 days in an airtight container and bring to room temperature before serving.

"This is a dish which truly reflects my family's culinary background, combining tomatoes and capsicums from the New World, Moorish spices and olive oil and sherry from the land. Mum's made this dish ever since I can remember. There'd be a bowl waiting at home in the fridge when we came home from school or a dish on the table whenever we had a party - and that was often. Asadillo has been with MoVida since the first day we opened in the old pub in North Melbourne. It is a bright refreshing salad of velvety roasted red capsicum served with softened tomatoes and a spicy cumin dressing.

It can either be served warm, shortly after the capsicums have been baked, or stored in the fridge for a few days for the flavours to mingle and develop." - Frank Camorra, MoVida
