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."

Mango galettes with berry fool


You'll need

375 gm butter puff pastry (see note) 20 gm melted butter 2 mangoes, cheeks removed, peeled and thinly sliced lengthways 30 gm demerara sugar 10 gm caster sugar 2 tsp finely grated lemon rind To serve: strawberries and raspberries   Berry fool 50 gm strawberries, hulled and coarsely chopped 40 gm pure icing sugar 50 gm raspberries 450 gm crème fraîche 20 ml limoncello liqueur

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Cut four 11cm-squares from pastry and place on a baking paper-lined oven tray. Make a shallow incision (don’t cut all the way through the pastry) 1cm in from all sides of pastry squares to form a border, then prick inside squares using a fork. Brush with melted butter, then layer mango slices to fit within borders. Brush mango lightly with butter.
  • 02
  • Combine sugars and lemon rind in a small bowl, then scatter over pastry squares. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and glazed. Cool for 5 minutes on tray, then transfer to a wire rack.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for berry fool, combine strawberries and half the icing sugar in a bowl and, using a fork, coarsely crush strawberries. Add raspberries and stir through. In a separate bowl, whisk crème fraîche, limoncello and remaining icing sugar until soft peaks form, then gently fold through berry mixture to create a rippled effect. Refrigerate until required.
  • 04
  • Serve mango galettes, warm or at room temperature, with extra fruit and berry fool.
Note We used Carême Butter Puff Pastry, which comes pre-rolled, see www.caremepastry.com. You can also use frozen butter puff pastry sheets from supermarkets.
