Top 10 Sydney Restaurants 2014

Looking for the best restaurants in Sydney? Here are the top ten Sydney restaurants from our 2014 Australian Restaurant Guide.

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."

Looking for the best restaurants in Melbourne? Here's our top ten from our 2014 Australian Restaurant Guide.

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.

White chocolate and raspberry-ripple ice-cream cake


You'll need

500 ml (2 cups) pouring cream 1 litre (4 cups) milk 155 gm caster sugar 10 egg yolks 1 tsp vanilla extract 400 gm couverture white chocolate 150 gm (about 1 punnet) raspberries 1 tbsp pure icing sugar   Raspberry ripple 300 gm (about 2 punnets) raspberries 50 gm liquid glucose 25 gm caster sugar   White chocolate curls 200 gm couverture white chocolate

Method

  • 01
  • For raspberry ripple, process raspberries in a food processor until smooth, then strain through a fine sieve, discarding seeds. Combine purée with glucose and sugar in a saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat, stirring continuously to dissolve glucose and sugar. Remove from heat, cool to room temperature, then freeze, stirring occasionally to prevent ice clumps from forming.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, place a 20cm-square cake pan and large bowl in the freezer to chill. Place 1 cup cream in a large bowl placed over ice and set aside. Combine milk, remaining cream and ½ cup sugar in a large saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, whisk egg yolks, remaining sugar and vanilla extract for 5-6 minutes or until pale and fluffy. Pour over milk mixture and whisk to combine. Return to pan and stir continuously for 4 minutes or until mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon. Add white chocolate and cook, stirring continuously, for another minute or until chocolate melts. Remove from heat and pour over reserved cream, stir, then stand, stirring occasionally, for 30-40 minutes or until chilled. Freeze mixture in an ice-cream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions, then transfer ice-cream to bowl in freezer.
  • 03
  • Divide ice-cream into 2 batches. Fold half the raspberry ripple through each batch to form a ripple effect (don’t overwork). Spoon into chilled pan, level top, then cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 12 hours or overnight until firm.
  • 04
  • For white chocolate curls, melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, then, using a palette knife, spread chocolate to almost transparent thickness onto a smooth surface or marble slab. Stand in a cool place for 10-15 minutes or until chocolate is set. Using a large chef’s knife, hold knife at a 45-degree angle and, working away from you, shave chocolate to form curls, then place in an airtight container and refrigerate until required.
  • 05
  • Combine raspberries and icing sugar in a bowl and, using a fork, crush coarsely. Refrigerate until required.
  • 06
  • To serve, dip cake pan into hot water, then invert onto a plate. Spoon crushed raspberries over and scatter with chocolate curls.

It melts in the mouth, what more can you say about a cake? The cake can be ready in the freezer and the chocolate curls in the refrigerator well ahead of time, top with crushed raspberries just before serving.
