Sydney's best dishes 2016

For our 50th anniversary issue in 2016, we scoured Australia asking two questions: What dishes are making waves right now? What flavours will take us into the next half-century? Sydney provided 16 answers.

Paul Carmichael's great cake

"Great cake, also known in Barbados as black cake or rum cake, is a variation of British Christmas cake that's smashed with rum and falernum syrup," says Momofuku Seiobo chef Paul Carmichael. "This festive cake varies from household to household but they all have two things in common: tons of dried fruit and rum. It's a cake that should be started at least a month out so the fruit can marinate in the booze. Start this recipe up to five weeks ahead to macerate the fruit and baste the cake."

Shark Bay Wild Scampi Caviar

Bright blue scampi roe is popping up on menus across Australia. Here's why it's so special.

Summer feta recipes

Whether in a fresh salad or seasonal seafood dish, feta's creamy tang can be used to add interest to a variety of summer dishes.

Mango recipes

Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

Crushed broad beans with garlic and lemon crostini


You'll need

500 gm podded broad beans (about 2kg unpodded) ¼ Spanish onion, finely chopped 1 small garlic clove, finely chopped 100 ml each extra-virgin olive oil and olive oil 1/3 cup (firmly packed) mint, coarsely chopped 1 lemon, finely grated rind and juice only   Garlic and lemon crostini 80 ml (1/3 cup) extra-virgin olive oil 1 lemon, finely grated rind only 24 thin slices sourdough bread (about 1 large loaf) 1 garlic clove, halved

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. For garlic and lemon crostini, combine oil and lemon rind in a bowl, season to taste. Place bread in a single layer on oven trays, drizzle with oil mixture, turn and repeat. Bake, turning once, until golden and crisp (4-6 minutes), then rub with cut-side of garlic and cool to room temperature. Makes 24. Garlic and lemon crostini will keep stored in an airtight container for 1 week.
  • 02
  • Blanch broad beans until just tender (1-2 minutes), then refresh. Drain, remove skins (discard), combine in a food processor with onion and garlic and pulse until coarsely crushed. Transfer to a bowl, stir in oils, mint, lemon rind and juice, season to taste and serve with garlic and lemon crostini.

When broad beans are out of season this dip works well made with peas. A combination of the two is great too. Add some very thinly sliced prosciutto for a meaty element - the saltiness works well with the lemony freshness of the dip.
